The Milledgeville Players are getting ready for their first joint venture with Georgia Military College (GMC).
The play is “It’s a Wonderful Life: a Live Radio Play”. This is a really clever, funny and touching play and the name sort of tells you what it’s about.
Basically, the story deals with a live radio broadcast of the story folks know from the motion picture, “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Actors and actresses re-create the characters from the movie “live and on stage” as if performing it for an old time radio show, circa late1940's.
The stage at the Goldstein Center on the GMC campus will be transformed into a replica of one of the great old radio network stations. And those stations, of course, would include an elaborate set up of instruments, devices, bells and whistles to create the many needed sound effects.
The actual performance dates of the play will be Friday, December 8 - Sunday, Dec. 10.
But before we have a play, we need to have auditions to gather together a cast.
Auditions are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 27 and 28. There will be two chances to audition each evening - at 5:00 and 7:00. So you have a total of 4 possibilities. You only have to come to one audition - just pick the one that is most convenient for you.
Both Wednesday audition times will take place in room 254 of Boylan Hall. That’s on the third floor, by the way. Boylan Hall is the main academic building for GMC and is located on Elbert Street right across from the Kidd Center.
Thursday auditions will be in the Goldstein Center itself. Pretty much the same building but on the lower level.
Males and females are needed and we are pretty much talking about every age bracket.
If you plan to audition, it would be great if you had a one minute monologue prepared. But if not, that’s OK. You’ll just read a bit straight from the script.
If you have any questions at all concerning auditions or other aspects of the production, contact director Amy Zipperer. She can be reached at 478-387-4735 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those audition dates again are Sept. 27 and 28 at 5 and 7 PM.
