The Backstage Theatre is seeking an actress, age 50-70, for a world premiere production of “The Wedding Eve,” a screwball comedy written by Christopher Willard. The play takes place in 1934 Hollywood. The role is a Hays Code representative – a widowed grand dame with a fervent desire to clean-up the film industry (and to bed a top studio executive in the bargain). Think Margaret Dumont in the classic Marx Bros films. The show performs in Breckenridge Jan. 13 to Feb. 11. Rehearsals are in November and December (sporadic dates) and kick-in at the first of January. This is a paid position. Lodging is provided during rehearsals and performances while in Breck. To schedule an audition, call Chris at (970) 453-0199 or by email at: artistic_director@hotmail.com.
