Auditions for NEVERMORE:The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe at VTSU-Johnson
OMINOUS LIGHTING PLEASE!
The Polaris Performance Company at Vermont State University at Johnson will present Jonathan Christenson’s darkly fantastic musical Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe April 25-28 at Dibden Center for the Arts on the VTSU Johnson Campus. The production is directed by Laura Roald with music direction by Kenny Grenier.
REHEARSALS WILL BE HELD MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAYS ON CAMPUS AT VTSU JOHNSON.
This unique and wildly theatrical musical combines haunting music and poetic storytelling to chronicle the fascinating life of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. A literary rock star of his day, Poe struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produces some of the world’s most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore explores the events that shape Poe’s character and career, blurring the line between fact and fiction–after all, as Poe himself writes, “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Actors and performers interested in joining the performing company are welcome to sign up for general auditions on Monday, February 5 at 6:00 PM at Dibden Center for the Arts on the VTSU-Johnson Campus.
