Jennifer Memolo will be directing HCT’s original production of Pregnant Pause by local playwright, Jeff Messer.
Pregnant pause is the story of a couple who are simultaneously breaking up and having a baby together. I am seeking actors who are adept at comedy. This is a fast paced, fun show with physicality and wit, imagine Friends meets the Odd Couple. The actors that I cast will be breathing life into these fresh, new characters. I need adventurous, creative types to bring life to Jeff Messer’s creation. So, if you’re up for a challenge and you want to flex your comedic muscles come and join us, June 24th and 25th, 6:30 pm at HCT. (Callbacks will be held on June 26th at 6:30 pm.)
Holly and Jack are doing the impossible…. living together while breaking-up and HAVING A BABY! Despite family and friends warning that this will only bring ruin both are stubborn enough to stay the course. Throw in the “PERFECT” Boyfriend and a Sexy Hook-up and you have one raucous comedy.
