The Fourth Graders Present an Unnamed Love-Suicide

By Sean Graney

Directed by Mackenzie Kirkman

Hello all! I'm happy to announce that auditions for the Student Lab Seriesare going to beJanuary 20th (5-6:30 pm)and 21st (4-6:30pm)in Performance Studio One. That's next Wednesday and Thursday! A sign-up sheet will be posted on Friday the 15th in the afternoon.. If you are currently in rehearsals for "Burial at Thebes" and would like to audition for this as well we will reserve the earlier slots on either day for you to assure you make your call time.

This showchronicles the performance of a play written as a suicide note by an 8 year-old named Johnny.Through the simple language the audience is faced with the blunt emotion and world view of a troubled young boy and given an idea of what happened to cause him to come to such a sad conclusion. Though the occasionally childish spoonerisms or awkward phrasing is often amusing, this play deals with a very upsetting and serious topic in a wonderfully unique and raw way. Sides which will be available at the auditions. It's not necessary for you to be familiar with them or have them memorized. Scripts are available in the main office for two hour check out.

There are five females and two boys as follows:
Johnny, a boy played by another boy
Rachel, a girl played by herself
Sally, a girl played by herself
Brenda, a girl played by herself
Mike Rice, a boy played by himself
Lucy Law, a girl played by herself
The Singer, a girl with a physical disability (this role really does require singing)

The performance dates for this play at March 31st-April 3rd and rehearsals will begin on February 15th. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at or my stage manager Gabriella Harper at

Break a leg,
Mackenzie Kirkman
