What are we up to?
Shakespeare's classic love story will return to the stage of Garfield Park in 2016. In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly, and fate causes them to commit suicide in despair. The tragic love story is one of The Bard's most popular pieces.

A powerfully poignant and often hilarious play, The Waverly Gallery is about the final years of a generous, chatty, and feisty grandmother's final battle against Alzheimer's disease. Gladys is an old-school lefty and social activist and longtime owner of a small art gallery in Greenwich Village. The play explores her fight to retain her independence and the subsequent effect of her decline on her family, especially her grandson. More than a memory play, The Waverly Gallery captures the humor and strength of a family in the face of crisis.
Auditions will take place in the Garfield Park Arts Center in Indianapolis, IN on
Tuesday, August 30th at 6:30PM & Wednesday, August 31st at 6:30PM.
Please have a monologue prepared for auditions, and be prepared to read from the script.
