Volunteer actors wanted
Manatee Village Historical Park is seeking volunteer actors for our popular outdoor drama, Spirit Voices from Old Manatee, entering its seventh season this fall. There are roles for men and women, and a variety of ages. Auditions will take place from 5:30-7:30pm on Sunday, July 23 and Monday, July 24. Spirit Voices from Old Manatee is an outdoor historical drama and cemetery tour. The show opens with a Victorian wake held in the 1887 Church. As the story develops, cast and audience continue to “the other side” for a torch-lit tour of the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds as the sun sets. Here, costumed thespians bring to life early pioneers of the Village of Manatee, veteran soldiers from the Seminole and Civil Wars, and other persons of interest in this area. These riveting graveside stories are based on narratives from archives, oral histories, diaries, military logs, books, and legend.
