St. James' Historic Graveyard Tours is looking for actors to portray a variety of characters in our lantern-light tours on Friday and Saturday nights in October. This is our sixth season and growing in popularity. Each character primarily performs a monologue with varying interaction with other actors and audience. These are paid roles.
The roles are:
1 Dr. Samuel Bard - a middle-aged, stately man. Primary founder of the parish.
2 Rev. John McVickar - a younger man (mid-20s, early 30s would be ideal but can go older). First rector of St. Jamesí.
3 John Germond - a 40-50ish man. Ideally can play organ. Organist/choir director for 35 years.
4 Ellen Roosevelt - athletic woman early 20s. Winner of 3rd US Open.
5 Richard Jenkins - between 40-70 man. Former slave, first sexton of St. Jamesí.
6 Catherine Carl - almost any age can work (20s - 90s. She lived a long time). Richardís daughter.
7 Emma Victoria Pitkin Marshal - 50-70ish woman. "Poetess of Hyde Park."
