We had a great story by Gaston Leroux to start with. Passionate music by Michael Sgouros and a script filled with compelling drama and intimate moments. But without the perfect actors to bring these songs and scenes and characters to life – the story could not be told. I am pleased to announce that after 3 weeks of auditioning we have a brilliant cast and I can’t wait to start working with them.
Actors bring the story to life – it is a noble and vulnerable art form that takes intense dedication and courage. The actors are the living bridge between the plays creators and the audience. If feel fortunate to have found a group of talented actors who I know will bring intelligence, emotion and depth to the incredible story of “The Phantom of the Opera”.
We will have our first read-thru this Thursday. Over the next two months it will be my pleasure to introduce you to these brave artists and the characters they will convey on the stage. We will invite you into our hearts, our heads and our rehearsals. You can interact with us as much as you want on this blog, our facebook page or twitter, or you can simply satisfy your voyeuristic needs and silently watch as this new production at the Players Theatre takes shape and comes to life before your eyes!
Until next time – Be Bold!
