Nineteen actors are needed to make up Alice Sycamore’s family — and the many people they “consider family” who just live there, including a Russian immigrant and an icebox man who came inside eight years to talk to Mr. Sycamore and, for some reason, never left
After auditions, the cast selection will be announced on Thursday, June 5, by noon on the Back Alley Productions Facebook page, through email and on the website at www.backalleyproductions.org.
Rehearsal dates are set for Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-9:30 p.m., with a technical rehearsal run set for the week of July 23-26, each rehearsal running from 6-10 p.m. Performance dates are July 25 , 26 and Aug, 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee at 1 p.m. on Aug. 2.
