Actors Needed for Quake

Allens Lane Theater is holding auditions for its fall production of Melanie Marnich's Quake.

3f, 2-3m, able to play a variety of ages

When a voice tells her to "move... it's the big love you're looking for," Lucy heads out across the country in pursuit of the love of her life. As she explores the vast geography of the great US of A, Lucy juggles eccentric characters and reoccurring dreams of a quirky female astrophysicist turned serial killer. But what is love, really? And is it possible for a woman, in our prescriptive modern-day, to truly explore the geography of her own heart?

Rehearsals will begin in Early August and will be held on Sunday afternoons, Wednesday evenings, Friday evenings, and Saturday afternoons
Opening: September 26
Dates of Production Sept 27, 28, Oct 3, 4, 5, 10, 11
