Audition Info For Our Next Show

Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for

The Man with Bogart’s Face 
by Andrew J Fenady
directed by Gail Cannata

Remember the good old days of radio—when people had to use their imaginations—when the mind was a stage? Those days are back—only better because you can SEE as well as HEAR radio programs. A man whose identity we never know has his face altered to look like Humphrey Bogart and is involved in a Maltese Falcon-type caper—like the old days when there were causes and dames and flags worth fighting for. And LAUGHS. Lots of LAUGHS, “a fast-moving story with action and staccato dialogue that literally bring Bogart to life.”

Auditions will be : Sunday, August 4th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Monday, August 5th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
There is No Pay.

Rehearsals begin immediately upon being cast based on cast availability.

The play runs two weekends: September 20,21,22 & 27,28,29.

“Last night we saw Love,Loss,and What I Wore. It was absolutely delightful, as always. I highly recommend going to see their plays!”

“I just saw Miracle On South Division Street and highly recommend it! It was both a funny and poignant story of a family with talented actors who really portrayed true family dynamics. There are still 4 more opportunities to see this special show!”

“This was not my first show, and I will be back for more.  The recent show was lively and well done.”
