Actors needed for The Quick Change Room, a raucous backstage comedy by Nagle Jackson, directed by Chris Rohmann. Subtitled "Scenes from a Revolution, the play tells the fictional account of a Russian theater troupe coping with the changes brought on by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Though the setting is Russia, it could well take place anywhere in the dog-eat-dog, bottom-line-obsessed world of theater at the mercy of fickly audiences and uncertain finances.
There are roles for five women and five men of various ages (17 or older). Performances will be May 27, 28 & 29, and June 3 & 4 in Ashfield. Rehearsals begin in March.
