Places, Please!

All the drama (and comedy) is not onstage as a young artistic director of a small-town community theatre juggles actor egos and patron demands, battles a formidable foe on the theatre’s board, and tries to re-kindle an old flame, all while coming to terms with his own stalled career.

We follow the trials and tribulations of Sean Brian Callahan, the artistic director of a small town community theatre group as he deals with an eclectic array of local talent, confrontations with chairperson of his board, his real job as night manager of a local inn, and his futile attempts to win back his true love, an actress in the company. A wickedly fun peak behind the curtain of amateur theatre, filled with laughs, love and more than a little heart.
