Gulfshore Playhouse seeks three local non-Equity actors to perform in education production IN FLIGHT: THE STORY OF SABINE VAN DAM. This short play, based on the true story of a local Holocaust survivor, will rehearse for one week in August and will give 15-20 performances at local schools over the 2017-2018 season. Actors must have daytime availability.

DESCRIPTION

At four years old, Sabine was living happily with her parents, sister, and beloved housekeeper Nana in a beautiful house in the Hague. One morning, her mother told her to put on every piece of clothing and jewelry she owned, and the family walked out and shut the door behind them, never to return. In Flight is a tale of climbing barbed wire to cross borders, hiding in abandoned houses, and the triumph of Sabine’s luminous spirit in the face of terror, betrayal, and devastation.
