February 12, 2024 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Open Auditions for the Guilford Center Stage play, “Love Lost Diaries” will take place in two sessions: Saturday Feb 10 from 1-4pm and Monday Feb 12th from 5-8pm upstairs at the Broad Brook Community Center in Guilford. The facility is fully accessible, with an elevator to the theater space upstairs.
“Love Lost Diaries” is the work of Marc Considine, a playwright in Hardwick, in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. It will be directed by Julie Holland, of Guilford, with performances on May 3-5, 2024.
Marc Considine teaches at Hazen Union High School in Hardwick. He coaches the Drama Club, a very ambitious program. It was for his student actors that Considine wrote this play, which was the ensemble’s entry in a regional drama festival in 2012.
“Love Lost Diaries” is Guilford Center Stage’s 12th production. Director Julie Holland has appeared as an actor in nine of the previous shows, and stage-managed another. She describes this play, whose main characters are three high school students: ” ‘Love Lost Diaries’ is a bittersweet story of a lifelong marriage that could have been so much more loving than it was, if only the couple had communicated their feelings to each other.”
Holland continues: “We need actors who can pass for young and then transform into old. Also a possibility is casting a mother/ daughter or granddaughter duo and a Father/ son or grandson duo, so bring the whole family! We have three male roles available, age range from 20-60+; three teenage female roles age range from 14-25; and two additional female roles age range 25-60+.”
Those who may be interested in working on the production, other than acting, may also attend auditions or be in touch.
Scripts will be provided for the audition, but those trying out should feel free and welcome to prepare a one-minute monologue to show off their acting skills. Those who can’t make either of the audition times, or would like more info, contact Julie Holland at JHollandPTA@live.com
