Auditions for the original stage show “Pine Bark Stew” will be held on Wednesday, September 5 from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Luck Flanders Gambrell Auditorium on the East Georgia State College campus. Produced by the Emanuel County Historic Preservation Society, this show is part of the celebration of Emanuel County’s Bicentennial. The play will be performed on November 2 and 3 in the Swainsboro-Emanuel County Auditorium with rehearsals slated to begin the week of September 17th. Written by Steve Lavender with contributions from George Elder and Lauren Leasure, “Pine Bark Stew” gives audience members a fun and entertaining theatrical journey into Emanuel County’s heritage from the past two hundred years.
The production seeks talented local folks (actors, singers and dancers) of all ages and ethnicities for a wide selection of roles. “There are parts for everyone in this show,” says Lauren Leasure, Director. “We are looking for anyone who wants to be a part of a unique look into our county’s heritage.”
Individuals wanting to audition may arrive between 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. No appointments necessary. Those auditioning will be asked to read lines which will be provided for them. Optionally, those wanting to showcase their vocal and dance talents may prepare a 30-60 second piece to show the director. They can perform a capella or come prepared with a CD of their music.
In addition to performers, the production team also seeks reliable, responsible, and fun people to help with the production in a wide range of jobs, ranging from choreographer to promotions, seamstress to stage hand and everything in between. Those wanting to help behind-the-scenes do not need to show up at auditions and are asked to contact Lauren Leasure at PineBarkStew@gmail.com.
