“In this comedy with a heart, Mom has been dead for 11 months and shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission. Like Clarence in “It’s A Wonderful Life,” she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. One by one the family’s secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.”

Auditions

Several months before we stage a play, we hold auditions to select the best available cast for the script. 

Typically, we advertise via email several weeks before, describing the script and the cast required.

Auditions are typically "cold readings" which means that the director selects representative passages for the readings, briefly describes the scene and characters and the actors take their best shot at doing a decent reading.

It's all very low-pressure, and can be a lot of fun.

Soon afterwards, casting is announced (via email) and rehearsals commence. 

Workshops

Periodically, we host theatre workshops on topics such as acting, directing, production, make up or playwrighting which are advertised via email and are open to the public. Participants are encouraged to register in advance.

There are presently no workshops scheduled, but please check back from time to time.
