This show is a treat for film buffs and theatre fans alike. Join us for a unique and original presentation by Dover Little Theatre's own Alex Oleksij!
Breakdown: The scenes from each movie are relatively short, only a few more than five pages, and the hope is to have a large cast and not use any actor in more than three scenes. Therefore, the commitment of time will not be great and actors will not have to sacrifice their entire summer.
All ages, genders and races are welcome. Needed are many of the classic character types: the femme fatale, the wise guy, the understanding parent, the tough cop, the dashing leading man, etc.
However, there are a few specific roles that need to filled:
- A black woman of mature years.
- Three young women and three young men between the ages of 16 and 18 (or who can pass as such).
- A nine-year old boy.
