I went to the second night of auditions for Shattered Angel on Friday. Once again, that is a play about a local historical murder being presented by the Herkimer County Historical Society in cooperation with Ilion Little Theatre (or is it “in conjunction” or “under the auspices of”? I don’t know the details). As it turns out, we have a slight problem. Not enough actors showed up.
There were enough folks there to read a couple of scenes. Unfortunately, even with doubling parts, I don’t think we got enough to cast the play.
One fellow read but thought he could not do the show, because of his work hours. Three weekends is a kind of a large commitment.
I read this scene on Wednesday. I was just filling in, though, because there was nobody present who really qualified for the part I read, that of the young murderer (I didn’t need a spoiler alert for that; this is a murder play but not a murder mystery).
I wanted to include one shot with the director, Stephen Wagner. He’s pretty cool.
So, local readers, are any of you actors? Would you like to be in a play? Go to the Ilion Little Theatre Club Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ilionlittletheatre/. Send a message, write a post, call the theatre. Older male actors are primarily needed. Can anybody help us out?
