Utah Auditions for A Night of Blacker Darkness

As you may have heard: my sister and I have adapted my book A NIGHT OF BLACKER DARKNESS into a play! And we’re presenting two productions of it this Halloween, one at Tennessee Wesleyan College in Athens, and one at Utah Valley University in Orem.

And we want YOU to be in them :)

I posted a link to the TN auditions two weeks ago, and those auditions have come and gone and we have an incredible cast. The UT auditions are just a few days away, on September 1 and 2, so if you’re interested please come and try out! This is a UVU production, but we’re opening the cast to the entire community: anyone who wants to audition is more than welcome, and we’d love to get as wide a range of people as we can. Here’s the information:

Wednesday, September 2: Auditions will be held at UVU, 4pm to 6pm, in GT 631 (aka “The White Box”).

    How would I go about obtaining tickets to the Utah performance?

    It might seem remarkable, but I just found out about the play. Are there plans to publish the script for amateur theatre? I am a member of a Community Theatre group, and we’re always looking for different things to perform.
