Venice Theatre seeks Actors for “Troupe in a Trunk” outreach program
(Venice, FL) Auditions for Venice Theatre’s “Troupe in a Trunk” spring tour will be held on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014 at 1 p.m. at the theatre located at 140 W. Tampa Ave. on the island in Venice. Venice Theatre’s Education and Outreach Director, Sandy Davisson, is looking for four adults to play roles in A Mermaid’s Tail. The script is written especially for “Troupe in a Trunk” by Venice Theatre’s playwright-in-residence Ronald Myroup. As the plot unfolds, we find that Marina the mermaid decides to trade her beautiful tail for a pair of human legs. The story resolves itself when Marina learns to be happy just the way she is!
Audition participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and footwear. They should also note that rehearsals and performances take place during daytime hours. Scripts are available for perusal by calling 941-486-8679 or emailing [email protected].
