Auditions for Essex Community Players upcoming production, The Cemetery Club, by Ivan Menchell, will be held on December 15 at 2pm and December 18 at 7pm at Essex Memorial Hall. There are roles for four women and one man, all stage ages late 50’s-early 60’s.
The Cemetery Club tells the story of three Jewish widows in Brooklyn who meet each month to visit the graves of their deceased spouses. Their friendship is challenged by a budding relationship between one of the group and the local butcher. It is a gentle and touching comedy with an opportunity for character actors to shine.
Production dates are scheduled for February 27-28, March 1-2 and 6-9, 2014. A script for the play is available for review at the Essex Free Library.
