Note from the Director: Come on time, ready to spend two hours developing character, accepting direction, and interacting with fellow actors. There are parts for three females and three males - two sisters, their mother, their husbands, and a gentleman caller for the mother. The rehearsals span the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, so the schedule will account for brief interludes, but don't plan on trying-out if you go to Brazil for the winter.
