The Roving Park Players announce auditions for their June production and ask:
“Can a person be his own worst enemy?” Find out in Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s rowdy satire, THE RIVALS, a madcap 18th century romp among the pouty and privileged. Forbidden love, betrayal, mistaken identity, hurt feelings, bad grammar, women who read too much, and more—be a partner in the pandemonium! Seeking 8+ males and 5+ females, ages 16 and above. (Check out the character list on our webpage). Be prepared to read from the script.

The Roving Park Players announces the first show of our 10th season, Shakespeare’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS —take two sets of identical twins, shake vigorously; stir in a jealous wife, her dreamy sister, a wandering dad and a missing mom, and you‘ve got this f arcical slapstick of mistaken identities.

From Erik Muller: “Happy New Year, Poets and Readers. Late last year Erik Muller published a chapbook, It Goes Without Saying, in bunches of thirty. As they are printed and sown, Erik will have copies at local reading series. So ask for a copy, and it is yours. Or if not then, then later. Thank you.”
