Ghost Walk Auditions

Elmira Little Theatre, in collaboration with The Chemung Valley Historical Society and The Woodlawn Cemetery, is once again holding the annual Ghost Walk.  Due to Covid, there will be several changes to the Ghost Walk to ensure the safety of guests and ghosts alike.

 
Details will become more available as the dates get closer, but one thing is certain:
 
Parts are available for 2 men and 2 women to play the historical characters (Ghosts) who will perform a monologue at the gravesite of their character. We may a 3rd man to play the husband of one of the characters. Each “Ghost” will have to memorize a 1-2 page script that will be recited to 6 groups each night. We will help you to find a costume that reflects the time period of your character. 
 
We also need “extras” to position themselves at locations along the route that the guests will walk between gravesites performances. These ghosts will have to work with the director to come up with ideas for interacting with the guests without getting too close.  
 
ALL ACTORS MUST BE AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16 AND SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17 FROM 5:30- 9:00.  AND IF THERE IS INTEREST, WE WILL BE DOING A SECOND WEEKEND ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23 AND 24. SO YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE THAT WEEKEND ALSO.
 
AUDITIONS will be held September 19 and 20 at the Elmira Little Theatre building between Noon and 6pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, so that we can observe COVID guidelines and keep contact at the minimum. We will schedule one person at a time in the building, but please wear a mask when you come in. 
 
Keep in mind that this is an all weather event.
