Information Please

FIRST REHEARSAL- Tuesday, September 7

CONFLICTS- Conflicts will be a factor in casting this show. Because of the interwoven nature of scenes, characters, and actors playing multiple roles, scheduling around frequent conflicts will be difficult. Please look at your schedules now. It is inevitable that sometimes we have to work around conflicts but ones that involve long periods of time, recurring weekly conflicts, or many absences during the course of the rehearsal period will be problematic.

ALL HANDS ON DECK...LITERALLY. The structure of this show is fluid and seamless. One scene runs into another into another etc. There are no scene breaks or blackouts during the acts. It is an extremely exciting paradigm. The ENSEMBLE of actors will be executing all scene shifts. This show will not be using a traditional running crew.
