The Grand Marais Playhouse would like to gather community members to participate in the art of creating a play. The Playhouse would like to hire a local, recent Theater graduate to direct the play. Local amateur actors would rehearse for five weeks, community members would help create the set, props, and costumes for the play. Volunteers would help with Front of house duties as well for each performance. The project would culminate in the celebration of opening night and subsequent performances for the public. Opening night and subsequent performances for local community and area visitors will be the result of five 10 hour weeks of rehearsal by amateur actors in costumes found and/or created by fellow community actors with props, on a set, under the lights and surrounded by the sound constructed by more community members to help create the environment of the play. Surveys will be sent to all participants following the production that ask three questions: What went well? Where were the gaps? How can we do things differently?
