News and Reminders for 1-29

Just a few notes before today gets away from us:

Auditions for Community Players' production of To Kill a Mockingbird continue tonight at the theater on Robinhood Lane in Bloomington. Tonight's session begins at 7 pm. To read more about the play and the novel it's based on, click here. Performances are scheduled for March 15-17 and 21-24. No prepared monologues necessary; auditioning actors will do cold readings from the script. For more information, email director Marcia Weiss at mlcweiss@yahoo.com. But be quick about it! Auditions will be finished after tonight.

Also tonight, Mathew Green's one-act play Vacation will be given a reading at the Station Theatre in Urbana. Katie Baldwin directs this romantic boy-meets-boy comedy starring Tanino Minneci and Maxwell Tomaszewski. This reading is free and open to the public. It begins at 7:30 pm tonight, with a brief musical introduction beginning at 7.

Tomorrow night is your one chance to see the film that goes behind the scenes at New York's "Create a Play in a Day" project. It will be showing on January 30 only at selected movie theaters. The closest theaters airing this cinema event are Willow Knolls 14 in Peoria and the Savoy 16 near Champaign. Tomorrow night only!

Masters students in theatre at Illinois State University are selling merchandise with a dancing Shakespeare and/or the ISU School of Theatre and Dance logo on them this week and next in the vicinity of the Airport Lounge between Centennial East and West. This is a fundraiser to help send the masters students to a conference this spring. But it means you can get your hands on t-shirts, caps, sweatpants, tote bags and fleece with ISU Theatre and Dance all over it. Find a masters student to get an order form, or hang out in the the Airport Lounge and you should see one.
