Farmers Alley auditions for ‘The Cake’ by video only

October 31, 2019

Synopsis: A delicious slice of American life. Della makes cakes, not judgement calls.  But when the girl she helped raise comes back to North Carolina to get married to another woman, Della’s life gets turned upside down.  She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she?  Written by Bekah Brunstetter, staff writer and story editor for NBC’s wildly popular hit, “This is Us”, The Cake is a savory dramedy that is smart, balanced and leaves us audience feeling moved and enlightened. This production is a Michigan premiere.

Very confident in her belief system, and she doesn’t hesitate to challenge those who think differently. Innately curious and inquisitive. She has a deep love for Jen, although she is impatient with Jen’s willingness to make allowances for her conservative southern friends and family. She is who she is, and she won’t make compromises to coddle people’s feelings.

Typically, rehearsals at Farmers Alley are Monday thru Friday from 7-10pm and often daytime rehearsals on Saturdays and Sundays too. But with the small size of the cast, daytime rehearsals may be more beneficial and convenient.  The producers and director will take all availability and conflicts into account to create the ideal rehearsal schedule.

February 7, 2020 – February 23, 2020

Performances are usually Thursday thru Sunday with occasional weekday performances and sponsor shows.
