Perform inCasting Call! the original comedy Fairy Tales: Abridgedthe play where the director goes nuts!  We’re preparing for a free performance at the library on July 19.  We need three more actors to play small but important roles including Cinderella and Prince No. 7.  Rehearsal and performance time can be counted towards community service requirements.  Anyone who is interested should contact Donna at 847-663-6434, or just show up at any of the rehearsals!  We meet every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-3 pm.  On Mondays and Fridays we’re in the large meeting room, and on Wednesdays in the board room.

Louise Rennison’s popular character, Georgia Nicolson, is getting her own movie.  It’s based on the book Angus Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, but the movie is called Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging.  What’s up with the title change?  Anyway, here’s the official website.
