Audition notice "Character Lines"

Auditions for "Character Lines" will be held December 16 and 17, 2018, at the Playhouse.  Both audition times are 7:00 PM.

"Character Lines" tells the story of Kit and Linda, who had shared a life together as they struggled for recognition as writers. Now, seven years later, Linda, who has become a successful novelist, is on a book promotion tour, and visits Kit in the small Tennessee town to which he has retreated. Their meeting is awkward at first—she radiates the savvy and energy of success in a high-powered world, while he has adjusted to the unchallenging routine of small-town life. But, as they begin to confide in each other, it becomes apparent that Linda, for all her acclaim and financial success, has not found the fulfillment she seeks, while Kit, who is still writing and carrying on a satisfying affair with his landlady's daughter, has come to terms with his hopes and dreams.

"Character Lines" is directed by Marirene Pankratz.  Show dates are February 15-16 and February 22-24, 2019.
