West Haven, CT: FUSE Theatre of CT is seeking a diverse group of young adult actors (aged 15-22) for a July production of Kimberly Belflower’s play Lost Girl. FUSE will accept video submissions through Sunday, May 15 with in-person callbacks scheduled for May 18th in West Haven and May 19th in Madison. Specifics on material and submission requirements can be found at fusetheatrect.org.
Lost Girl is a gorgeous new play by the award-winning, up-and-coming American playwright Kimberly Belflower, based on the continued story of Wendy Darling of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan.” Years after returning from her adventure in Neverland, Wendy remains fixated on her beloved Peter and the childhood magic she left behind. Can Wendy face finally leaving her beloved nursery and learn what it really means to really grow up? Lost Girl is a lyrical exploration of finding love, overcoming trauma and entering adulthood. BroadwayWorld says it “draws the audience in through this story we’ve heard a dozen times before, then winds up bringing the high-flying fantasy back to solid ground. It’s refreshing, bold, and brave to take such iconic characters into a new and very real place, teeming with the big, wild emotions of adolescence.”
Lost Girl will be directed by Lara Morton of Madison and performed July 22 and 23 at Gateway Christian Fellowship in West Haven. Rehearsals will take place Sunday afternoons and Monday evenings at Gateway Christian Fellowship, 129 Bull Hill Lane, West Haven.
