Ghost and Gravestones Auditions

September 8, 2019 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Ghost and Gravestones Auditions

Ghost & Gravestones is an annual event featuring historical tours of the museum and Grove Street Cemetery with a cast of about 20 characters based on real people. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in getting on stage. Each part consists of a short monologue and the rehearsal time is not as involved as a normal production. Rehearsals are typically 1-2 hours every Sunday until the event, which will be Thursday, October 24 – Saturday, October 26 with a rain date Sunday, October 27. Majority of the roles are best suited for adults of all ages, but there are a few suitable for teens. No prior experience necessary and we will need volunteers to help behind the scenes, so if acting does not interest you this is still a fun event to be a part of!
