Actors Required For Play "Ripcord"

Chester, NJ, United StatesID: 208392Exp: 12/13/2022
Category:Theater
Description:

Auditions for play "Ripcord". In search of cast. Please see the breakdown below. About the project: "A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden." Additional info: Performances: February 17 - March 5, 2023. Theatre practices an “open casting policy,” which means that all roles are always open, all are invited to audition, and newcomers are always welcome. Please see the document attached.
