The Inappropriate Suitor is a new play written by Ballard resident and acclaimed independent filmmaker Erik Hammen (, and will be directed by Steven Sterne ((The Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence, Chorestia, Saturday Morning Cartoons edition 2). Set in a fantastical world styled after German expressionism, the story is a classic "us against the world" love story.

We strongly encourage performers of all races, ethnicities and gender identities to audition for The Inappropriate Suitor. All roles are open to any ethnicity, and several could be played by an actor of any gender identity.

There will be one cast meeting and readthrough in late August or early September, with rehearsals beginning on September 18. The show opens on November 3 and runs through the 18th, with strike on the 19th. Shows are Thursday - Saturday; there will be one Sunday matinee and one Monday industry-night performance.

Stipend: $50, possibly enhanced by proceeds from an artists benefit night - TBD.

Rehearsals will be Sunday through Thursday, generally from 6:30-9:30. Most actors will not be called for all rehearsals.
