We’re casting 3 females & 3 males (mid-30s to mature) for our October play “Ghost of a Chance.” Scripts will be provided for readings.  Bethany is independent, beautiful and has zero self esteem. She has brought her fiancee Floyd, and his mother, Verna, up to her cabin in the woods, site of the hunting accident that killed Chance, her first husband. Much to her surprise, his ghost is still there & not thrilled with her plans.  Hilarity ensues when a psychic’s help is enlisted.  Now’s your chance!  Come try out at Gilmer Arts, 207 Dalton St.
