Join members of the 4th Line Theatre on Saturday, February 1st at a community play workshop and a public reading of The Orchard written by Ian McLachlan and Robert Winslow.
The day-long workshop begins at 10:00 a.m. and will culminate in a free public reading of the play at 4:00 p.m. at Centreville Presbyterian Church on County Rd. 28.
Loosely based on Chekhov’s classic play The Cherry Orchard, the story is set Millbrook in 1969 when the village finds itself in the throes of land development, communes and free love and was first performed in 1999.
The workshop offers community members free training and mentorship under 4th Line’s Managing Artistic Director, Kim Blackwell, and Founder and Creative Director, Robert Winslow. Blackwell will direct the reading and is excited to host this workshop and reading, “This is an exciting event which I look forward to every year,” explains Blackwell. “It is an opportunity to involve the wonderful and talented regional community in an off-season artistic project.”
4th Line will be casting actors/readers of various ages and genders to participate in the workshop. No previous experience as an actor is needed.
