It's official -- 84 Charing Cross Road has been selected for the next Bare Bones!  My blurb:

In 1949, a struggling young New York playwright sent a letter inquiring about second-hand books to an antiquarian book store in London. So began a 20-year friendship between Helene Hanff and the booksellers at 84, Charing Cross Road. Taken from their actual letters, this story will amuse you, charm you, and send you running to your nearest library.

It's a really sweet and funny show, and I can't wait to see it brought to life in front of an audience.

Auditions are on March 15, and the show will be one night only, Thursday April 19, so mark your calendars now, or better yet, go sign up to audition!

You should direct more often too, I've always been impressed by the energy and watchability of the shorts you've directed.

I'm looking forward to directing again sometime, definitely. For the past year and a half I've really had to put all of my energy into my job, but now that I'm more established in the position, I'll have more time for theatre. Looking forward to [ profile] gilana's work!

Woo Hoo!

I put the date in my calendar.

I dunno about auditioning. maybe? Probably if I were going to audition for a staged reading it would not be in the three weeks before open studios, though.

Although it's been about a bajillion years, I'm tempted to audition. A staged read is actually something I could handle time-wise very easily.

Yay! I can generally handle a fairly involved rehearsal schedule. The big thing for me is finding time alone to commit everything to memory. That need is totally erased in staged reads, which I love. It's all the fun work of theatre without the mind-numbing work!

Not to mention I love staged readings.

For us LJers, could you by any chance post a character analysis? Or, if you're feeling lazy and willing to humor me, what parts might be played by males in their 20's?

Sooooo if I come I can read as the "distinct personality" characters, right? Because honestly, I will buy three wigs if I have to just to be in the show.

I'm strongly considering auditioning for this! I worked on this show (as an ASM) years ago; it's really quite wonderful and poignant.
