Cast for locally-written drama sought
A locally-written play based on a true Juneau wilderness drama will be staged this winter by the Douglas Youth Drama Association. Youth in grades five through eight are invited to participate.
The Night The Forest Cried, was written by former Juneau-Douglas High School drama teacher Donna Breeden, and debuted at JDHS in 1992. Its based on the true story of two boys who went hiking after school on Mount Juneau. When weather closed in on them, only one returned.
J. Althea will direct the play. Casting is open to all interested who maintain focus and appropriate behavior standards. There is no formal audition. Rehearsals begin at 4 p.m. Sept. 17 at Douglas Community United Methodist Church and will be held Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons through the fall. Performances will be in mid-January at the Palace Theatre. For details call J. Althea, 586-4933, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
