The Marion Art Center has announced open auditions for all roles in the upcoming production of The Puzzle with the Piazza, written by Mark Dunn and directed by Pippa Asker.
Due to current MAC policies and for everyone’s safety, only fully vaccinated actors will be considered for roles. PLEASE WEAR A MASK to auditions.
The Puzzle with the Piazza, a new full-length comedy-drama by Mark Dunn, author of Belles, Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain, and The Glitter Girls, tells the story of septuagenarian Althea Witlin, who has one jigsaw puzzle among her large collection that she’s never worked. It contains 3,000 pieces and she has less than a day to finish it, because poor health has forced her to move in with her younger sister … without her puzzles. The Puzzle with the Piazza is a gentle, bittersweet comedy/drama about the fragility of family ties and the often much stronger bonds of friendship that lattice the final years of our lives.
Auditions will be held on Saturday, January 8 from 10:00am – 12:00pm and Sunday, January 9 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm at the Marion Art Center located at 80 Pleasant Street, Marion, MA.
