Seeking Community and Professional Theatre Actors For Staged Reading of New Play “We The People”

CTCallboard Logo

We are currently seeking actors with prior experience in community or professional theatre to read for multiple roles in a staged reading of a new, student-written play at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, Connecticut, set to take place on November 9th, 2013.

“We The People” is a new play in 2 acts by ECSU student and playwright Anthony J. Piccione that tells a story that takes place in an alternative reality, and describes how when society is given the right amount of unrest and turmoil, a large populist movement – such as the Tea Party movement or the Occupy Wall Street movement or the Arab Spring movement – could easily lead to a revolution in the United States of America. The script has had developmental readings and gone through various revisions in play writing classes in the spring of 2013, and as part of an independent study – under the guidance of Professor Matthew Gallagher – during the summer of 2013.

A staged reading of the play will be presented to the public later this fall at Eastern Connecticut State University. The event will take place on November 9th, 2013 at 7pm at the Student Center Theater. The event will last roughly 2 and a half hours, and will include a straight read-through by actors from ECSU – as well as from local community and professional theatre – of the full-length play We The People and will be followed by a brief open discussion of the play with the audience.
