Auditions

 

……………………

What is more important – to live in the “home place” settled by ancestors, or with family? This is the question posed for the holiday production at Limelight Theatre. Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow struggles with this decision – leave her mountain home and the ghost of her husband, or sell her property to the real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation development, and go live with her country singer son and help raise his two children. The struggle with this decision takes Annie through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks of her life.  Played by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy on Broadway, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country life.

Resumes and head shots are appreciated but not mandatory.

Scenes will be read from the script.

Males auditioning for the role of the son: prepare a country-western song you will sing accompanying yourself on guitar.
