Cottage Theatre announces auditions for Almost, Maine
Cottage Grove, OR — Cottage Theatre will hold open auditions for Almost, Maine by John Cariani on November 3 and 4 at 7:00 pm. Auditions will be held in the rehearsal hall at the theatre, located at 700 Village Drive in Cottage Grove.
A cast of anywhere from 4 to 19 actors is needed for nine separate vignettes. A wide range of ages (16 years and up) will be considered, and the show calls for equal numbers of men and women. Almost, Maine will run for 10 performances from January 31 - February 16, 2014. Eliza Roaring Springs is the director.
Almost, Maine is a play about love and longing, friendship and isolation, melancholy and hope. The setting is a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter in the mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. The nine short, and sometimes quirky, vignettes all have a fable-like quality and the sweet simplicity of stories being told around a New England campfire.
These auditions are open to any interested actors and no appointment is necessary. Auditioners are asked to come prepared to tell a 1-3 minute personal story from their life. For more information, please contact Cottage Theatre at (541) 942-8001 or visit www.cottagetheatre.org.
