Auditions for The Lonely Soldier

November 13, 2014

Looking for 7 actresses and technical assistance

Casting seven women, ages 19-47, for professional non-Equity production of The Lonely Soldier.

The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, with support from the University of Maine at Augusta’s Veteran Achievement Project, the Maine Humanities Council, and the Maine Arts Commission is producing The Lonely Soldier: Women at War in Iraq, a documentary play by award-winning journalist and playwright, Helen Benedict.

The Lonely Soldier features seven women, ranging in age from 19 to 47, who vividly tell the real life stories of military women who served in Iraq. Their stories focus on the challenges they faced from warfare, discrimination, to their own consciences.

The production will be directed by Jeri Pitcher, UMA Adjunct Drama Faculty, and will perform at the following locations:

  • March 12th through the 15th at Michael Klahr Center at the University of Maine at Augusta.
  • March 20th through the 22nd at Portland Ballet Studio Theater, 517 Forest Avenue in Portland.
