Audition will consist of readings from the script. Head shots are appreciated but not required. As you can see age of actors playing the roles in relative in most cases.  As doubling can call for an actor to play a 14 year old and a 50 year old woman it gives the actor an opportunity to really stretch and play.

Performances are Feb 3-Feb 24.  Friday and Saturday at 8:00 and Sunday at 2:00. Actors must be available for all performances.  Rehearsals will begin shortly after the show is cast.
