Community Spirit, Inc. of Adams, TN presents its Fall Festival
including two productions, written by David Alford:
SPIRIT: THE AUTHENTIC STORY OF THE BELL WITCH OF TENNESSEE
SMOKE: A BALLAD OF THE NIGHT RIDERS
Seeking professional actors, both union and non-union. All roles paid. Roles for men, women, young adults and children. Actors of ALL types, ages and ethnicities are STRONGLY encouraged to audition, as are actors who play musical instruments (guitar, banjo, violin, drums, harmonica, etc.) If you play a musical instrument, please bring it and be prepared to play something that reflects the region (country, bluegrass, spiritual, etc).
SMOKE: A BALLAD OF THE NIGHT RIDERS is a musical about the night riders in TN and KY who destroyed farmers' homes, farms and families who couldn't maintain their allegiance to the tobacco union. The score has a country/bluegrass feel. Performance dates: October 2-4 and 7-9.
SPIRIT: THE AUTHENTIC STORY OF THE BELL WITCH is based upon Richard Williams Bell's historic memoir, detailing the haunting his family suffered during the early nineteenth century in Adams, Tennessee. Performance dates: October 23-25 and October 30, 31, November 1.
Date: Sat/Sun June 28/29
Time: Saturday: 10am-12:30pm and 1:30-4pm; Sunday evening: possible call-backs; auditions by appointment only
