Image result for play onPLAY ON!

WHEN: Sunday, December 9th and Tuesday, December 11th at 7:30 pm
The Chatham Playhouse: 23 North Passaic Ave., Chatham
Production dates are February 22 thru March 9, 2019 with rehearsals to begin early-January.  John A.C. Kennedy directs.

Somewhere in the muddy, artistic netherworld between Noises Off and Guffman is… Play On! the story of 10 enthusiastic, if artistically-challenged, amateurs attempting to stage the world premiere of an exciting new play -- which may or may not be a murder mystery, depending upon who you talk to... 

Director Kennedy is looking for 10 enthusiastic (if artistically challenged) performers, ages 15-80.  Gender a plus... but not required.  Auditions will consist of cold readings.
