As home to the renowned Maryland Symphony Orchestra, Washington County Museum of Fine Arts and The Maryland Theatre, Hagerstown has long enjoyed a rich heritage in the arts. So it should come as no surprise that the Hub City is also home to one of America’s oldest community theater groups, The Potomac Playmakers.
The Hagerstown Women’s Club created the Playmakers in 1926 after a motion by member Mary Lemist Titcomb, a nationally recognized figure made famous for her work with public libraries and the founder of the bookmobile concept. Titcomb felt that a formal theater group would help get the local community involved in the theatrical performances the Women’s Club put on throughout the year. Her hunch was correct. For more than eight decades The Potomac Playmakers have been committed to bringing a broad range of productions to Washington County.
Potomac Playmakers, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, non-profit community theater company in business since 1926.
Potomac Playmakers, Inc. is holding auditions for “Final Cut”, a murder mystery by Haley Productions, Monday and Tuesday, February 2 & 3, 2015, 7:00-9:00 pm at The Women’s Club, 31 S. Prospect St., Hagerstown, MD 21740.
“Final Cut” centers around a director who is looking for backers for his new movie, so he's throwing a gala shindig for interested parties. In return for their funding, he’s promised them parts in the movie. Murder ensues when greed meets the inflated egos of the B-movie’s stars and production staff.
The director of the murder mystery, Greg Berezuk, is looking for 3 males and 3 females of various ages. There is no need to bring a prepared piece to auditions, but an acting resume is encouraged. Please highlight any experience with improvisational sketch comedy. Those auditioning will be presented with a character description and a scene description and asked to act out the scene with improvised dialogue with a scene partner(s). Performances will be in the Hagerstown area on April 11, 2015 and 2-3 other dates TBA.
