I've been getting a lot of notices lately, and I thought I would share.
- The Peoria Journal-Star has launched a new theater blog called THINK THEATER for area community theaters to keep everybody updated on their comings and goings and general doings, and I'm blogging for Heartland Theatre Company. Holly Rocke is blogging for Eureka College Theatre, too. You'll want to read all about Rally 4 Rolly, Young at Heartland, Heartland's new season, Eureka's new season, and everything else that struck us as fun to blog about.
- Jared Brown has announced auditions for his new play "Three for the Show," which will take the stage at Heartland Theate Company in November. Audition dates are August 4 and 5, 2010, from 7 to 10 pm both nights. August 4th is an open call for all interested actors, with callbacks on the 5th (or open call for those who couldn’t audition on the 4th).Tentative rehearsal period is September 15 to November 2 with numerous “off-days,” and performances are scheduled for November 4-7, 11-14, and 18-21, with all performances at 7:30 pm, except for November 7, 14, and 21 (Sundays), which will begin at 2 pm. FMI, visit HTC's website, linked at left, or click on the THINK THEATER blog link above. The movie poster that accompanies this blog is not Jared's "Three for the Show," but it actually looks a bit like the plot of one of the three plays that makes up this program.
