    AUDITIONS: Our next Drive-in show

    Nat’s Last Struggle

    LIVE STREAMING STARTING FEB. 19.

    Nat’s Last Struggle is a powerful one-act, one-man show written by Norfolk playwright P. A. Wray. Nat Turner led the slave rebellion that took place in Southampton County, Virginia, during August 1831; this play is a dramatic adaptation of “The Confessions of Nat Turner,” published by Thomas R. Grey in November that same year as “an authentic account of the whole insurrection.” Woven into the piece are bits of lore and supposition regarding several aspects of Turner’s life.
    Performances are livestreamed from the Conejo Players Feb. 19 – 21, 2021
    Friday & Saturday 7 pm, Sunday 2 pm.

    Over the years Wray’s plays have been featured in local new play festivals as productions and staged readings. Nat’s Last Struggle received critical acclaim during Norfolk Summer Play Fest 2011 and was presented at The Earl Hamner, Jr. Theatre, Afton, Va. and Gateway Theater, Waynesboro, Va. in Oct. 2011. It was produced in July 2015 and presented at Generic Theater, Norfolk, Va.

    The Road She Did Take

    Although I had lived in Westlake Village since 1998, my first experience at Conejo Players Theater wasn’t until 2015. Dang it – I missed seeing so many wonderful productions in those years!

    However, in 2015, I auditioned for a show called Follies and despite my being late to the audition process (I was in Michigan moving my daughter into school during the week that auditions took place), the director and producer were nice enough to allow me to audition on the Saturday of callbacks. Lucky for me, they were still looking for a mature (I refuse to say old) woman to play the role of Heidi in her later years and I guess I fit the bill! Thank you, Arryck and Shawn!

    Through that production, I was introduced to the magic that is CPT and also made so many new theater friends! I wanted to be more a part of the theater than just performing and was fortunate to become part of the Board as secretary.

    Producing a children’s production, a musical and a play followed – such enriching experiences and again more new friends made!

    My last involvement with the theater before I moved to Arizona was the joy that was A Miracle on 34th Street – A Live Radio Musical Play which I had the pleasure to be a part of a year ago! I will treasure all of my memories at CPT and am still watching from afar! So proud to be a small part of the 60+ years that CPT has been in existence! Here’s to many more!!!
