Casting Call Dec 8, 9 & 10 2014

The Old Theater is happy to announce auditions for Love Letters, a play written by A.R. Gurney and directed by Jackie Mahan. Auditions will be held at the Old Theater on December 8, 9 & 10 from 7–9 p.m. (Attendance is only required at one audition.) Play performances will be March 13, 14 & 15. All details about rehearsals (days, times, etc.) will be provided at the auditions.

Love Letters is a unique and simple, but imaginative drama, delivered in the form of letters written by two friends who grew up together, went their separate ways, and continued to share confidences. The play has two characters, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, who have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. The letters are read on stage, requiring very limited line memorization.

Behind-the-scenes volunteers (light props, set, costume work) are also needed. For further information, contact Jackie Mahan, 252-249-1340, jax.mahan@gmail.com.
