AUDITIONS FOR SHATTERED ANGEL
Auditions will be held July 25 and 27 for Shattered Angel.
14 males and 3 females are sought for a variety of roles in this production based on the true 1914 murder in Poland, NY of schoolteacher Lida Beecher at the hands of her 16-year-old former student, Jean Gianini.

AUDITIONS FOR COTTON PATCH GOSPEL
The Little Theatre will hold auditions for Cotton Patch Gospel on August 12 from 4-6 pm and August 14 from 6:30 - 8 pm.
Cotton Patch Gospel is a down-home retelling of the gospel according to Matthew setting the story in the state of Georgia.
A total of 14 men and women, ranging in age from 8 to 80 are sought for a variety of roles.
Those auditions should come prepared to sing something that displays their range, as well as a short audition piece to read.
In addition, there will also be cold readings from the script.
Skill with the piano, guitar, bass, or fiddle is a plus, as it is hoped that band members can be part of the cast.
If you have any additional questions you may contact the director, Rick Riggle at 404-697-6837.
A tradition still upheld many decades later is the social aspect of the Ilion Little Theatre. While the organization continues to produce shows for the general public throughout the year, the organization's members meet once a month to socialize at a pot luck dinner at the theatre.
Each dinner meeting is held the third Thursday of the month (unless pre-empted by a scheduled performance), every month, from September through May.
General organization business is conducted during these meetings, but both current members and those interested in joining are invited to attend.
The next monthly dinner meeting of the "Ilion Little Theatre" is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, September 21 at 6:30 pm at the theatre (also referred to as "The Stables"), located at 13 Remington Ave, behind Remington Arms.
A social period (BYOB) will be held from 6:30 to 7:00 pm followed by dinner and those attending are asked to please bring a dish to share.
The date is subject to change.
