Auditions for The Last Night of Ballyhoo

Directed by: Ilene Chalmers

Monday, July 15, 2019 – 7PM – 9PM
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 – 7PM – 9PM

Rehearsals will be held in Millersville, MD.

It’s December of 1939. Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta’s elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Especially concerned is the Frietag family. The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are.

Performances will be October 11 – 27, 2019

Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Please come prepared to use a southern accent (regionally Georgia) for all characters except Joe, who speaks in a New York accent.

Please bring a head shot and resume (if available) and all conflicts you may have between auditions and end of performance schedule.

For any questions regarding auditions, please contact the director, Ilene Chalmers at savageil07@yahoo.com

Location: Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

The causeway’s flooded and (of course) the local sheriff is stranded on the mainland. Naturally on a turbulent night like this, the phones are down and who would ever expect cell phones to work in this remote part of the state? Does it sound like a good night for a roaring fire and a dinner party with a lot of laughs from a boisterous, tipsy actress? Does it sound like a good night for a murder – or two? People are dying and the party really isn’t funny anymore.

General Admission – $22.00, Seniors (62+) & Students – $17.00.
Group Rates(10 or more people): General Admission, Seniors (62+), Students – $15.00.

The Women of Lockerbie by the Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse, Mar 1-17

The Women of Lockerbie
by Deborah Brevoort
Directed by: Estelle Miller
Produced by: Andy Negri

March 1 – 17, 2019

Location: Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

The Women of Lockerbie takes place seven years after the 1988 disaster in which an American airliner was destroyed over Lockerbie, Scotland, apparently by a terrorist bomb. The Livingstons have come to Lockerbie for a memorial service that is being held for the families of the victims. They meet the women of Lockerbie who are determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love by washing and returning the clothes to the victims’ families. The Women of Lockerbie is a powerful and moving poetic drama—an affirmation about how the human spirit triumphs over evil.

General Admission – $22.00, Seniors (62+) & Students – $17.00.
Group Rates(10 or more people): General Admission, Seniors (62+), Students – $15.00.
