16-3-3, Home is a story of the unsung heroes, the original settlers of Range 16, Township 3, Section 3, who, through grit and determination, carved out a community which became Harlem Township. Through the eyes of members of the Cook Family, we see how the parcel passed into their hands as a rough and untamed Ohio frontier where it became a community where descendants of the original settling families still reside. This play is the featured performance of the 2019 Harlem Township Days (Galena, OH) festival in August.
Production Kickoff and auditions takes place at:
Westerville Public Library
126 S. State St., Westerville, OH 43081
Curtain Players offers a information session for each of its productions as a help for actors seeking roles, but attendance is not required to audition. The event is an opportunity for actors to become acquainted with the community theatre organization, to discuss the play with the director, and to ask questions about the audition process, rehearsal period, and production plans. Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend.
Curtain Players conducts open auditions for its productions. Roles are not cast in advance, and, unless specified otherwise in the role's description, are open to all without regard to race or ethnicity. Casting decisions are made by the director and a casting committee comprised of a member of the theatre board, a general member of the organization, and individuals of the director's choosing.
Actors should be ready to read cuttings from the script. Every effort will be made to give actors equal chances to read. Resumes and head shots are helpful but not necessary.
