Open auditions for IMMIGRANT GARDENS – LETTERS
Wednesday, May 15 at 7:00 and Saturday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m.
by Caroline Wood and directed by Cathy Marshall
This delightful and poignant reading set in 1910 tells the story of the unlikely friendship of two women – one a young woman from Kelso, Washington and the other a matronly but spry woman from Yorkshire, England – over their love of flower gardens. It’s “(a) story of an English garden and the hearts that grew it.”
This production requires six actors: A woman in the age range of 17-21; a woman in the 60+ age range who can speak very convincingly in a British accent, a man in the 50+ age range, a young man aged 18-22, a middle aged man, and a middle-aged woman who can also speak with a British accent.
Note: While this is readers theater, there are times the performers will not be reading from the script and will be moving about the stage.
If you are unable to make the audition times, please contact the director, Cathy Marshall at 360-808-8588 to set up a more convenient time. Please come prepared to read a passage of your choosing as well as from the script that will be provided at the time.
This show is intentionally set to run during the Lavender Festival. After all, “Did I tell you while gardening it makes good sense to put a sprig of lavender beneath your bonnet? It is said to keep headaches away.” – Mrs. Louise Beauchamp
