Meet April Strelinger, native St. Louisan and local actor who has performed at The Muny and other local theatres. In our conversation, we discuss April’s experience with The Muny and what makes the theatre such a wonderful place, from its unique challenges to that fabled Muny Magic. April shares how she prepares for auditions, including how she deals with nerves and practices self-care, and we hear her best audition story. We learn why it was so special for April to get that first Muny role and she passes along her best audition advice. She takes us through the process from casting to first rehearsal, discusses what makes The Muny special (back to that Muny Magic), and wraps up with three words to describe The Muny.
