The Story…

After years of traveling abroad, Avery Sutton is happy to return to the comfort of his home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, almost nothing is as he remembered it. The entire house is tilted at a distinct angle, the dog hasn’t been fed in five years, and Avery’s Grandmother, who everyone thought was dead, is still alive and kicking. Forced to either accept the oddities of his family or leave them behind, 37 Postcards suggests that you can, in fact, go home again… You just never know what you’re going to find.

Audition Information…

Audition dates: December 12 & 13  from 6 – 8 pm.

Audition location: Matthews Opera House, 612 N. Main Street, Spearfish

What to expect: No experience necessary! You will be asked to read with other participants from sections of the script previously selected by the director. You may choose to commit to a “cold read” (seeing the script for the first time), or you may get the scene selections in advance to become familiar with them. Scene selections will be available in the Matthews Gallery by November 27 at 10 am.

Auditions are also a great time to express your interest in backstage work, set building, lights and all of the other necessary skills that make a show great! Stop by if you have any interest “behind the scenes” and visit with the director.
