Are you a swaggering and despicable Pirate who roams the high seas - or a sniveling landlubber?? Do you have it in you to be a womanizing cut-throat or a lusty wench who can best any man in a sword-fighting battle?
Can you portray a raging sea monster, a meddling mother-in-law, a ship's cat who has more courage than all others on board, or a swash-buckling pirate-to-be who goes to bed when his mother tells him to? ALL these characters - and MORE- will be in our summer production of "PIRATES IN THE PARK" (four original short pirate scripts - plus music!) which will be performed outdoors June 9-10 and 16-17 at Nokomis Park in south Minneapolis. Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday April 24th and 25th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm OUTDOORS (weather permitting) at the 16th Avenue Bridge on Minnehaha Parkway in south Minneapolis.
