Dreamwell Theatre will hold auditions for Last Train to Nibroc by Arlene Hutton at the Iowa City Public Library Friday, December 17th, from 3:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday, December 18th, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The play is the first offering in Dreamwell Theatre’s 2011 season: “War and Consequence.” Performances are February 10th through 12th at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 10 S. Gilbert St. in Iowa City with an added performance at Oaknoll on February 13th. A copy of the play is on reserve at the Iowa City Public Library. Rachael Lindhart directs.
The play follows two young people who meet on a train in Kentucky, both facing disappointments. She expected to be married, he expected to ship off for war. Thus ensues a relationship that builds over repeated encounters between 1940 and 1943, a time of great change in America. The play is a wonderfully rich examination of the ways the two people cope and grow as human beings, both individually and together, in a time of upheaval. New York Theatre calls it a “blissfully sweet romantic play quite unlike the typical fare offered in theatres these days.” Wonderful parts for two young actors (one male, one female, both 20’s).
Actors will be asked to read from the script in pairs. Rehearsals, will begin around January 5th (with a flexible schedule). For additional information (or if you are interested but can’t make the listed audition time), call the director at 319-337-2206 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
