CENTERstage Productions is excited to announce auditions for a new play, The Covid Confessions, written and directed by Louisa Vilardi.
After time has passed, what will be remembered of this uncertain world we are currently navigating? Through tales of pain, empathy, and pure insanity, The Covid Confessions is a series of monologues that chronicles personal accounts of those who lived to share them. This play explores stories of those affected by the current health crisis as well as political and social injustices that consume our lives. Filled with honest humor and heartfelt tragedy, The Covid Confessions promises to be an evening of theatre that will place the mirror to our reality as we continue to trudge through a global pandemic that has changed our lives.
Written and Directed by Louisa Vilardi.
Location: The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck.
Performance Dates: Jan. 8-10, 2021 - this performance will be live streamed to our audiences every night, meaning you will be on the stage performing to cameras and being streamed (a la SNL or the Carol Burnett show) to the audience at home.
