Audition Notice for Inherit the Wind

Posted by on Jul 9, 2017 in Announcements, Events | No Comments

We are excited to announce the auditions for our fall play, Inherit the Wind!

Inherit the Wind

This play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee takes on a subject that is still controversial today. Inherit the Wind discusses the debate covered in the Scopes “Monkey” Trial, which argued creation versus evolution. Inherit the Wind’s many revivals and film adaptions show that this argument is still relevant today. Although we know the answer to this argument remains open to interpretation based on an individuals views and beliefs, what conclusion will they come to in this story?

Audition Dates:
Monday, August 21st, 2017– 6pm-9pm
Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017– 6pm-9pm

Location:
The Levoy Theatre
126-130 N. High Street, Millville, NJ 08332

Callbacks:
Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017– 6pm-10pm (if necessary)
