GroundWorks Theatre announces auditions for Robert A. O'Connell's "The Road to Bethlehem," to be directed by the author. Auditions will be held on Saturday, September 6 2008, from 3:00-5:00pm, and Sunday, September 7 2008, from 12:00-2:00pm, at the Darkhorse Theater. The play will run December 12-21 2008, also at the Darkhorse.
Description: In this light-hearted but reverent story, a collection of some of the lesser-known and behind-the-scenes characters from the original Christmas get their moment in the spotlight, including a couple of philosophical shepherds, a Roman Centurion, a second newborn child, an overworked innkeeper, and a certain little drummer boy.
Roles are available for 11 men (20s-50s), 4 women (20s-40s), one boy (who can play approximately 7), and one angel (gender and age not specified). Actors of all ethnicities encouraged to audition. Appointments are not necessary, headshots and resumes are helpful but not required, and auditions will be by cold readings from the script.
