Thrilled to see this great audition opportunity for THE SIGNAL SEASON OF DUMMY HOY, based on the true story of Deaf baseball player William Hoy, at Center Stage Community Theatre just north of Indianapolis. This play, by Allen D Meyer and Michael Nowak launched my career as a children's book author. It was because I wrote an article about a local production at Garland High School that Steve Sandy contacted me and our friendship led to the idea of me writing THE WILLIAM HOY STORY, HOW A DEAF BASEBALL PLAYER CHANGED THE GAME, illustrated by Jez Tuya. Proud that Steve and Allen have become lifelong friends. I'm also grateful for the support and friendship of the Hoy family and all the amazing people I've met on this journey. If you're anywhere near Indianapolis, try out for this play! It may change your life, too. Albert Whitman & Company Texas 2x2 Reading List Texas Library Association

******AUDITIONS!!*******
Center Stage Community Theatre is auditioning for its first show of the 2022 Season! "Visiting Mr Green" By Jeff Baron and Directed By Matt Trgovac.

When: January 17th and 18th at 7pm
Performance Dates- March 18th - April 3rd.
Where: Center Stage Community Theatre, 604 Powell St. Lebanon In 46052

Roles Available:
Ross Gardiner: late 20s, American Express executive, gay – without stereotypical mannerisms
Mr. Green: Stage age 70s-80s, retired dry cleaner, widower, orthodox Jew

Mr. Green, an elderly retired dry cleaner wanders into New York traffic and is almost hit by a car driven by Ross Gardiner, a 29 year old corporate executive. The young man is given a community service of helping the recent widower once a week for six months. What starts as a comedy about two men who do not want to be in the same room together becomes a gripping and moving drama as they get to know each other, come to care about each other and open old wounds they've been hiding and nursing for years.

Actors will be reading from the scripts, no monologues or preparation needed. The Director plans to hold the first read through on Monday Jan 24th. Rehearsals expected to take place Monday, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 7-9pm at the theatre depending on actors availability.

It was recently brought to our attention that some have been saying we asked our actors in "Black Coffee" to not get tested for COVID during the run of our upcoming show. This is completely untrue and the actors have been given no such instruction. We hope this clears any confusion and we will continue our production with stringent safety measures in place for our actors and audiences. Thank you!
