Director Kate Fishman is seeking additional actors for The Cherry Orchard, for which rehearsals have begun. Fishman is looking for two male actors in their twenties and one male actor in his thirties or older.
The Cherry Orchardby Anton Chekhov, is a drama (dramedy) that examines and illustrates the prevailing class structure of Chekhov’s Russia. Ranevskaya struggles to deal with the realities of losing her family estate, her daughters Anya and Varya choose their own ways to deal with the big changes ahead of them. Meanwhile their neighbor, Lopakhin, tries to solve everyone’s problems with new money and new ideas.
