at Stage On Spring
St. Marks UCC
July 17-19, 24-27, 2015
$10, 8:00 pm.

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,

J.R. Stuart, Artistic Director
