Auditions: '7 Stories'
by Morris Panych
Production Dates: September 9 - 12, 2009
Synopsis: A show about a man searching for answers to life's questions from the ledge of building. A phenomenal Canadian play filled with interesting characters, great life lessons and a man trying to make sense of it all.
Notes: Rehearsals are planned for Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Please indicate if you are unavailable for any of the afore mentioned dates. The original casting of the show calls for a small cast portraying multiple roles. This may or may not still be a possibility.

  Jennifer - A social butterfly.
  Lillian - An elderly woman, steps from death, with a very interesting view on life.
