Last Chance to AUDITION for Holiday Candlelight Tours!

Open Auditions for the Holiday Candlelight Tours - "Sotterley Christmas Past" will be held this Saturday, October 29 from 3-5 p.m. at Sotterley Plantation. Cast and crew for this annual event consist of all volunteers, supporting the important educational programming at Sotterley, a non-profit, National Historic Landmark.

We are thrilled to announce that this year's Holiday Candlelight Tours will be directed by James LePore (photo above), long-time talented friend of Sotterley and a creative wonder - seasoned actor, playwright, graphic designer, and television and radio personality. If you have had the opportunity to attend the Ghosts of Sotterley Tours over the last three years, then you have experienced his incredible writing skills!

This year's script entitled, "Sotterley Christmas Past" was written by Sotterley's Education Director, Jeanne Pirtle (photo above). Weaving together a fine understanding of Sotterley's history with high caliber dialog, the script focuses on Sotterley’s past Christmas seasons with the families who lived here, guided by those who worked here. As visitors move from room to room within the 1703 Plantation House, they will share joy and sometimes bittersweet memories with the people of Sotterley from over the past three centuries … as they celebrate the season with love, laughter and good friends.

And YOU can be part of it all - portraying an amazing cast of characters! Roles available for the following:

2 Caucasian Males (Age 45-55)
3 Caucasian Males (Age 25-35)
2 African American Males (Age 20-30)
