1/4 Actor/Director call for Portland Gallery Playwrights Group at Fertile Ground
- Greetings all,
Fertile Ground is emerging 1/23 and Portland Gallery Playwrights Group (pg2) is still
seeking actors and directors for some of their readings and late-nite performances to be
held during the festival at The Amory (home of Portland Center Stage).
For those of you who have already sent a headshot/resume to me personally - if I have not
gotten back to you - my sincere apologies! Learning as I go as how to best organize and
plan for all of our dozen events, and some of you may have fallen through the cracks but
we DO want to hear from you (again!)
We have a yahoo group now, so if you are still (or newly) interested, please send you
interest and info to:
AND we are holding an open meeting/audition session for interested actors and directors
this Sunday from noon-4ish at a local to be announced.
Questions can be answered by reaching me, Marguerite, at (503) 975-7067.
And a bit about what we're doing:
1/23 & 1/24 Late-nite "Hot House" at the Amory 11pm : selected comic shorts (only
need to be available one or the other evening for performance - different plays each nite)
1/26 - 2/1 Lunch time "Down & Dirty" readings 12:30pm at The Amory: Different
featured writer each day - some slots still need director and/or actors.
We plan on have a few rehearsals for each of the lunchtime readings, scheduled as
needed/suited to director and actors.
The late-nite series will be a bit more polished/staged, but are evenings of 6 or 7 shorts
(ten minutes or so) with rehearsals as needed.
It's not a huge time commitment required, but we do need talent and enthusiasm! It's a
great opportunity to be part of a fabulous new (hopefully annual) festival, get some
exposure for your skills, and help nurture and present new works by local playwrights!
So, please post your interest at:
and if you have a problem posting there (this is new to me) feel free to e-mail me
(marguerite) at megrjv@....
