Auditions: Recommended Reading for Girls

Auditions for Recommended Reading for Girls by Ellen Struve will be held February 10 & 11 at 7:30pm in the lobby of the Legion Theatre. Recommended Reading for Girls will run May 1-10 with a special second matinee and event on Mother’s Day. This production will be directed by Laurel Ann Lowe. Roles for adults AND youth/teens available!

Amy’s mother is going through chemo, her older sister is extremely pregnant, and things aren’t exactly going great for her either. When she comes back home to pitch in and help out, she discovers unexpected guests from her favorite childhood novels. A farm girl, a mountain girl, an on-again-off-again heiress, and an intrepid teen detective confound her ideas about their stories, herself, and the people she loves. A play that classic book lovers will especially enjoy!
