HSHS Looking for Tremble Photos

Tryouts being held.

The Howard-Suamico Historical Society will be holding open auditions for an upcoming Readers Theater. A Readers Theatre is performing from an open book and reading the lines while acting in front of an audience.

We are planning a presentation of “A Day at the Old School House” to be held on Saturday, August 10th at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Each performance requires about 25 participants (over age 10 to senior citizens) to perform roles in the play and last about one hour.

Open auditions for cast members will be held on Tuesday, June 25th and Wednesday, June 26th at 6 p.m. inside Tremble School, 12787 Velp Avenue. Once the cast is chosen three rehearsals and one dress rehearsal will be held before the Saturday performance.

If you would like to perform in a lighthearted enlightening glimpse into what a one room school was like, please consider joining our cast of characters.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any board members of the historical society.
