About the Program:
The director of Silver Stage has the opportunity to present any Shakespeare play of their choosing, that director will cut down to an hour and a half performance. SDT will assist in scheduling auditions and rehearsals of actors age 60 and older from the Saint Louis and surrounding area. Actors can be well-versed or new to the stage. The goal is to engage with senior citizens in a positive, community driven way.
The Director will have 1-2 rehearsals a week at SDT’s home, Tower Grove Abbey, from January to May of 2019. Length and frequency of rehearsals are up to the Director and company; in 2018 rehearsals were held from 11 AM -1 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Daytime rehearsals tend to work better for older actors.
The Director will have assistance from the SDT artistic staff in the creation of sets and costumes, and other theatrical needs.
Pay is $800 for the project. Qualified candidates can send their resume to GFBell@straydogtheatre.org.
