Yes, the theater company is now seeking local couples' love stories for a community engagement project that will work in conjunction with the Rose's upcoming production of Don Zolidis' comedy "Miles & Ellie."
More details are contained in the press release.
The Miles & Ellie Project will showcase real life love stories on video and in written anecdotes. The short videos will be released on the PRTC YouTube channel, web site (www.purplerosetheatre.org), and social media platforms beginning Monday, June 17. Couples are invited to share their stories in short video interviews, filmed at the PRTC by appointment through June 14. For those who prefer not to appear on camera, written submissions will be accepted throughout the summer online at www.purplerosetheatre.org/onstage/lovestories. For more information, visit www.purplerosetheatre.org.
The world premiere production of Don Zolidis’ "Miles & Ellie" will take place at the Purple Rose Theatre Company Thursday, June 20 through Saturday, August 31, 2013. The story follows Miles and Ellie, two teenagers in love when a youthful misunderstanding breaks them apart. Flash forward 20 years and a disenchanted Ellie has come home for what she expects to be a typical dysfunctional family Thanksgiving. Not long into the family shenanigans, however, Ellie learns that Miles is still in town and carrying a torch for her.
Tickets are now on sale for Miles & Ellie by phone at 734-433-7673 or online at www.purplerosetheatre.org.
