The team of East End women behind the very unique Apron Strings Project will host auditions for the production March 21-22 in Riverhead.

The series of short scenes, monologues and musical pieces about a collection of 21 old-fashioned aprons and the women who once wore them will take the stage at the historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in downtown Riverhead May 2-4.

Each of the scenes was submitted for the show during an entry period earlier this year, and the next phase will be the casting, said co-producer Cindy Clifford of Riverhead.

The producers are looking to cast five women and two men to play several characters each.

“Experience not required, but performers must possess strong skills and a professional attitude and be able to memorize material,” the casting notice reads. “Rehearsals will be after work hours weekdays and on Saturdays.  Performers must be available for all show dates.

“Our casting call will take place in Riverhead on Friday March 21 from 5 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday March 22 from 10 a.m. t0 5 p.m.

“Please prepare a dramatic/comedic monologue, no more than 3 minutes.

“Auditions by appointment only.  Email [email protected] and note if you have a time preference and if you require accommodations for stairs.”
