Location: The Marion Art Center

Some roles have minimal line memorization, so everyone is encouraged to audition! Auditions will consist of a cold reading from the script and actors auditioning for the parts.
No prior acting experience is necessary; both accomplished and aspiring actors are encouraged to audition. Participants can expect 2-3 weekday rehearsals during October, November, and the first week of December. Rehearsal scheduling will be flexible and take actors’ needs into consideration.
Fishman said, “I’m also looking for volunteers for stage manager, set builders, and other tech help, so please contact the Marion Art Center if you’d like to be part of this production, we’d love to hear from you.”
