It’s time for the Library Players

We are nearly half way through the summer, and that means it is time to start up the Library Players again.  For those of you who are new to the area, the Library Players perform a play at the end of the Summer Reading Program.  They are the kick-off event for the evening.  This year we are lucky enough to have another JobiN Terranova original script.

This is a kid’s production, and all kids are welcome.  There are speaking and non-speaking rolls, and large roles and small roles.  If your youngster doesn’t aspire to be an actor, we could always use help with props and PR.

Casting call is July 31, then rehearsals are August 6, 13, 19 and the play is presented on the 20th.  Rehearsals are at 6:30 pm

If you have any questions, please call 926-4840 and we will willingly answer any question.
