Cast Members Needed for Play Reading at Beechmont Players

BPI_logoBeechmont Players is going to hold another ZOOM play reading on Sunday afternoon, January 10th from 2-4pm. It will be an as-yet-unpublished dramedy (see below) sent to us by acclaimed playwright Michele Lowe, who wrote THE SMELL OF THE KILL which Steve Phelan directed for BPI four years ago.  

Please email Steve at stevephelan7588@gmail.com  if you are interested in taking a role (and which role(s) you are interested in). Steve will cast this first-come, first serve, but will try to give preference to people who haven’t participated yet, so we all get a chance to join in the fun!  Once cast, an electronic copy of the script will be emailed to each cast member.

ZOOM readings aren’t the same as live, but they provide a great chance to experience unknown shows, practice your acting skills, and socialize with your theater buddies.  And we hope they’ll be a reminder of why we started working with Beechmont Players in the first place!

Just want to watch?  Put the date on the calendar and let Steve know. He will make sure you receive the ZOOM link! Zoom link will also be available via our social media pages!
