6/18/11 Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Directed by Bob Weesner
In California’s Salinas Valley of the 1930s, world-wise and world-weary George fuels the dreams of man-child Lennie to, “get their own little place.” The itinerant farm worker George entertains his own thoughts of life without his slow-witted friend. Lennie’s innocent penchant for trouble portends both men’s fates as they take work-for-hire on a farm.
Little Theatre off Broadway will hold auditions for the show at 7 p.m. on Sunday June 19 and Monday June 20 at the theater, 3981 Broadway in Grove City. The show calls for 9 adult men between 20 and 70 years old, and one adult woman 20 – 40. Auditions will consist of readings from the script.
The Director is looking for a well-behaved medium sized or larger dog for the production. The dog would be expected to be able to lie down and stay on stage for awhile and allow him/herself to be led on and off stage a couple of times. Please contact the Stage Manager, CJ Jamison, to set up a time for your doggy audition.
