Play Set in Venice Looking to Cast Locals

6:22am

Cornerstone Theater, a company that makes plays with and for communities, is in residence in Venice all summer long and this coming Sunday and Monday they are holding auditions to find cast for their Venice-based play, Ghost Town.

Set against the colorful and complicated neighborhood of Venice, Ghost Town is a love story between a woman and her house. When Zelda is offered big bucks for her charming Bungalow, she’ll have to decide – should she stay or should she go? Visited by the ghosts of Venice past, present, and future, Zelda learns of the vibrant history of her community – the visions of Abbot Kinney, the dreams of migrant families, and the inspiration for generations of artists and creatives. But she also learns that not everyone is as they seem and the future may be dark for her beloved home.

Full of music and revelry, Ghost Town serves up a story of home, community, and change that is both raucous and real. “We are so excited to begin rehearsing this spectacular play,” says playwright Juliette Alexandra Carrillo.

The play features original music and casting will also be looking for singers, dancers, and musicians – a piano player in particular, as well as actors.

“We will be looking to cast all ages in the play, ages 8 and up. There is nothing to prepare and no experience necessary,” says Carrillo, “…we are excited for the whole community to get involved.”

 

Auditions will be held on Sunday, July 10 and Monday, July 11 at Oakwood Recreation Center, 767 California Ave., Venice, from 6:30pm – 9:30pm each day.
