Description:

The company is seeking Equity actors for 2024-25 Fall/Winter season, please see the details below. About the project: "HILLARY AND CLINTON" SYNOPSIS: Hillary is trying to become the president of a country called the United States of America. It’s 2008, and she’s campaigning in a state called New Hampshire. She’s not doing very well in the polls. She needs more money to keep the campaign going, so she calls her husband for help. He offers her a deal, a tough deal, but when she gets his help, she gets more than she bargained for. You may think you know where this story is going, but you don’t. After all, the play takes place in an alternate universe where anything can happen. "FAT HAM" SYNOPSIS: A modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Your typical Southern family cookout just got anything but. Juicy gets a visit from his father’s ghost seeking revenge for his death by his brother—now married to his mother! Sound familiar?
