On Sunday afternoon April 12th, actors young to middle-aged are welcome to audition for the 5th annual summer pride festival, where we 'll be continuing our tradition of presenting multi-generational plays, premiering in Vermont.
Auditioners should call or e-mail ahead to set a time for auditions. (Walk-ins will be auditioned as time permits, but may have to wait.) Please bring 2 resumes and headshots (if you have them), as there will be 2 directors.
We're casting the following plays for July 2015.
– Jonathan Harvey's 1994 play Beautiful Thing, directed by CHER LASTON, a coming-out story, subsequently made into a film. Still relevant two decades after its premiere in Britain, the 5-person cast includes 3 teens and 2 adults, 1 of the latter being old enough to parent teens.
– Sarah Gubbins' 2011 play The Kid Thing, directed by MARGO WHITCOMB, after its successful run in Chicago. The long friendship between 2 lesbian couples is rocked by news of a pregnancy. The 5-person cast calls for 4 women (20-40s) and 1 man, mid-30s.
