Request for Actor Housing

The Compass Rose Theater is looking for housing for visiting actors. Barbara Aiken has this message for us about the opportunity to host an actor:

Dear Wardour Community,

One of our great local theaters is looking for short term housing for actors. Lucinda Merry-Browne, Founding Artistic Director of the Compass Rose Theater recently wrote to me, “…do you know anyone who might be willing to host an actor? We need to find hosts for our show starting rehearsals October 9.” If there is anyone in our community who would be willing to open their home to an out-of-town actor, Lucinda would love to hear from you. Lucinda’s contact information is:

“Ports in a Storm” Housing for Actors is the Compass Rose group of theater supporters who provide housing for actors. Compass Rose states that hosts receive complimentary tickets, a free dinner for four at a local Annapolis restaurant prior to their attending the show, and the pleasure of having a working artist in their home. Actors are usually in Annapolis for about nine weeks and host families can chose to host the actor for the entire time or a portion of the time. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope that some of you will be enchanted by this opportunity to host an out-of-town actor and support local theater and the Compass Rose.
