One male track (in a cast of 5M, 2W) remains to be filled. The track includes the roles of Pinhead Manager, English Policeman, Porter, Lord John and Will.

Strong character and dialect skills are required.

Once this role is filled and all rehearsal conflicts are resolved, our goal is to casually rehearse Saturday afternoons (three hours) in late May, early June, then three evenings a week late June through opening.

I am very flexible with conflicts (in order to get the best people, one must be) and work quickly and promise not to waste anyone’s time.

All proceeds from this production (no-one, except very small stipends to light designer and costumer -gets paid) benefit the Clothes Closet and Soup Kitchen Missions at St. Marks United Church of Christ, serving (feeding and clothing) over 150 people every Saturday.

If you have a short monologue (serious or comedic), I’d love to hear it and have you read from the script.

Contact me (text or call) to set up an appointment at 502.380.6569. We can meet at Stage On Spring, 222 East Spring Street, New Albany.

Thank you very much and may God bless,

VSM Entertainment is currently casting for the upcoming stage play LINCOLN IN LOUISVILLE, to be directed by Vin Morreale. Nine actors are needed at a pay rate of $200 each per performance.
To commemorate the 160th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, the original play by David Traub marks the pivotal visit of a younger Abraham Lincoln to the Speed Plantation in 1841. During this visit with his friend Joshua Speed, Lincoln's first-hand experience set the basis for his strong anti-slavery stance. The play will receive a full production at The Alley Theater in Louisville for four performances, June 4th through 7th.

There will be 5 half-day rehearsals. Two in mid-late May. The last three will be tech/blocking rehearsals at the Alley. Each actor will be paid $75 for each rehearsal. In addition, each actor will be paid $200 for each of the four performances (Thursday through Saturday evening, plus a Sunday Matinee). Because he has the lead, the role of Lincoln will be paid $250 per performance.

Leading Roles:
ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Male, Caucasian, late 20's through early 40's. Should be tall, somewhat slim with sharp features.
JOSHUA SPEED, Lincoln's friend and Plantation owner, Male, Caucasian, late 20's through early 40's.
