This Season (which has the theme of Men vs Women) includes:
Faith in Shackles: written and directed by Justin Giachetti-- An original work about women's connection to God throughout history and the battle against man-made religion. This production needs 8 additional women(some roles have been filled) and 3 men. This work will be workshopped and rehearsed starting mid-September, and will be performed around the last week of November and the beginning of December.
Roles available for this production are: RUTH (A no-nonsense agnostic lawyer whose exterior only masks the rejection she’s felt in the past) DAUGHTER (Eve) VIRGIN (St. Agnes) WARRIOR (Joan of Arc) WRITER (Anne Frank) RULER (Bloody Mary) PRIESTESS (Tituba) MESSENGER (Liz Trobishi) THE FATHER THE SON THE SPIRIT
Almost, Maine: written by John Cariani, directed by Liz Carlin-- This show, being performed around Valentine's Day, is all about the ultimate power struggle: Love. Set in a little town in the middle of nowhere, it explores how love can transform you, for better or for worse. This show will need 6 actors: 3 men/3 women.
Titus Andronicus: written by William Shakespeare, directed by Justin Giachetti-- This will be a fresh take on the lesser known Shakespeare drama about revenge, secrets, betrayal, and mutilation. This production will be set in Cold War America, using the feud between the USSR and the US and the sloppy politics that ensued as the cultural backdrop for all the mayhem. This cast will be our largest and will be comprised of both men and women.
