Now and Then Auditions
January 29th, 2022 at 2 PM | The Krevsky Production Center

Play Synopsis: One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, an anxious, last-minute customer offers he and his girlfriend, Abby, two thousand dollars to stay and have a drink with him. As the trio exchange stories, and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career as well as his and Abby’s future, the young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices... and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.

Theatre Harrisburg is committed to identity-conscious casting.
