Back Stage at the Black Box Thanks Donors and Sponsors
On August 30 the first Back Stage at the Black Box event was hosted for donors and sponsors of the theatre. Nearly 50 people attended and were treated to refreshments and a behind the scenes peek into Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Director Clif Jones talked about the play and character development, followed by a scene enacted by Brick (Zach McPeak) and Maggie (Sarah Foley). Read all about the evening in this Martinsville Bulletin article by Holly Kozelsky.

Audition for Carol Burnett!
Corbin Campbell, Artistic Director for TheatreWorks Community Players, is taking the helm for this production. You may audition on September 24 between the hours of 2 and 4 PM in the Black Box Theatre on Franklin Street. Simply prepare a monologue (1 minute or less) of a comedic nature, or just show up and we will give you something to read. In Corbin's words, "It will be an entertaining evening of laughter and fun, featuring a range of comedy sketches from Carol Burnett."
