Open Auditions for “Last Train to Nibroc”

GHENT — At Ghent Playhouse, Sunday, February 23 at 1 p.m. and Tuesday, February 25 at 7 p.m.

The Ghent Playhouse announces auditions for “Last Train to Nibroc” by Arlene Hutton and directed by Sky Vogel. Auditions will be held Sunday, February 23 at 1 p.m. and Tuesday, February 25 at 7 p.m. in the Ghent Playhouse theater located at 6 Town Hall Place (adjacent to the Ghent Firehouse off Route 66) in Ghent, New York.

“Last Train to Nibroc” is a funny and touching portrait of the search for happiness. Set in 1940, this simply staged romance tells the story of May and Raleigh, who meet on a cross-country train trip and soon discover they are from neighboring towns. Love blooms and complications abound, when Raleigh decides to follow his heart—and May—to Kentucky, rather than his plans to become a writer in New York.

The play calls for two strong actors, one male and one female, who can portray characters from 20-30 years old. Younger individuals who can play older or older individuals who can play younger are encouraged to audition.

Those auditioning will be asked to read specific scenes from the script. The rehearsal schedule will be based on the availability of those chosen for the production. Those interested in auditioning are asked to be as specific as possible in listing any and all conflicts.

Performance dates are Friday-Sunday, May 22-24, 29-31 and June 5-7. Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm, Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.
