About the Play:

16 years after graduation, Mitch, a successful sportscaster, happens to catch Morrie, his former university professor, on a TV interview. After learning that Morrie is battling ALS, Mitch goes to see Morrie. What starts as a simple duty visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and Morrie’s final class on the meaning of life. Based on a true story.

If you are an actor looking for a challenge, this could be for you. You need to be interested in text and character work. The play itself is quite short, but it packs a punch. This play contains comic and dramatic moments, and an incredibly life-affirming story.

Director Sue Garner is new to the Elmira area but brings us years of experience directing in other community theatres. She is looking forward to seeing a wide variety of people at the auditions, so if you are interested, you are most welcome – please come out.

The play will be adjudicated in Elmira through Western Ontario Drama League, as out-of-festival. (No travel.) The adjudication date will be April 28.
