If you are unable to make either night you may message me for an appointment. Rehearsals start 12/3 through 12/20, then break until 1/02/2019 for the holidays. Performances start i/26/2019 and run on weekends through 2/24/2019. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. If you are unfamiliar with the show, there is an excellent film of the Lincoln Center production with Spaulding Gray as the Stage Manager.
