Shows I want to audition for have been scarce. Well, there have been shows that sounded interesting, but were in Marietta. And that is just too far for me to drive. I live in Buford and work in Norcross. Norcross to Marietta is not too bad, but Marietta to Buford can be a very long drive when you have rehearsals 4 nights a week.
Drive from Buford to Norcross (19 miles) for work. Norcross to Marietta (25 miles) for dinner and rehearsal. Then Marietta to Buford (41 miles). That’s 85 miles round trip.
I need to move closer back towards town. I would love to live in Norcross or Dunwoody. I like Norcross better. Norcross would not be too bad for the play houses in Decatur, Dunwoody, Roswell, Marietta and downtown Atlanta.
I will, however, audition for Funny Money at Polk Street Players in Marietta, because Lane Teilhabe is directing.
Polk Street Players will hold non-equity auditions for the British farce Funny Money at St. James’ Episcopal Church, 161 Church Street, Marietta, 30064. Auditions are Tuesday, March 7th, 7-9 pm and Wednesday, March 8th, 7-9 pm. Cold readings from the script. No appointments needed. All roles are unpaid. Seeking 2 women, ages 30-50 and 6 men, ages late 20s- early 50s. Show will run May 5th – 21st (eight performances). For additional information call Lane Teilhaber at 404-524-1311.
Jayne, from my second class with Chris, called me on Friday night having just returned from rehearsal. The person who was to play a very minor part could not and the part had to be recast. She gave me the phone number of the director (Richard Dillon). Well I called and was given the part based on Jayne’s recommendation. Auditions are good, but friends are better. As in anything else in life, it’s who you know!
