COOS BAY — Auditions for the staged reading of "A Gathering of Finches" will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Dolphin Playhouse, 580 Newmark Ave., Coos Bay.
"A Gathering of Finches" is a new play by Judith Elliot McDonald adapted from the novel “A Gathering of Finches” by author Jane Kirkpatrick.
The play tells the story of the life of Cassie Hendrick Stearns Simpson, wife of Louis Simpson and inspiration for Shore Acres.
The play has roles for 10 actors: seven women and three men of all ages. The story takes place over 20 years, so age is only a small consideration.
The performances of this staged reading will be held on Jan. 19, 20 and 21, 2018. A read-through will be held Sunday, Dec. 10, with time and location to be announced. Rehearsals will be held Jan. 12 and 13. This formal staged reading will be directed by the author. Talk-backs with the cast and author will follow each performance.
For more information about the auditions, call McDonald at 541-297-5597.
