The Things We Did Last Summer

The Things We Did Last Summer tells the story of the Millmans, a prosperous family who own a lake house called Water's Edge in the fictional town of Harborside, Rhode Island. The events of the play follow the seven Millmans as they grow and change throughout the span of time between 1941-1951, and experience the ever changing definition of what it truly means to be a family. After a whirlwind of workshops and readings at Emerson College in Boston and The Contemporary Theatre Company in Wakefield, Rhode Island, writer and director Morgan Capodilupo is thrilled to announce that Dive In Productions will be mounting the world premiere performance of The Things We Did Last Summer! Rehearsals will begin after auditions in early November, with performances in February 2015. We are currently seeking talented and committed actors to cast and enthusiastic artists to comprise our creative team. Auditions will be held during the first two weeks of November, dates, times, and locations TBA. Please come with a headshot and resume and be prepared to read from the script. No prior experience necessary. Interested creative team members may also attend the auditions with a resume, as an interview process. Please feel free to contact the director, Morgan Capodilupo, with any questions, or if you would like to see a copy of the script. Thank you! :)
