The Last Nickel Audition Information

The Last Nickel by Jane Shepard is theatrical, funny, and touching. It’s another long night for Jamie, with an obnoxious sister and a trio of sardonic puppets to keep her awake. Tinged with fun and sisterly nostalgia, the merriment comes inevitably to focus on the cause of Jamie’s self-destruction, and the loss that has brought her to the edge.

This show will be entered in the Maryland Community Theatre Festival Association Festival, January 14-17, 2022. The Festival is hosted by the Potomac Playmakers of Hagerstown.
