1931 Troupe - Call for Actors

The 1931 Troupe, a theatre, arts, music & history community action group based in Lake Ozark is calling for actors to act as living history characters on the Bagnell Dam Strip during
Oma Noma Days May 15 & 16, 2010.  We are a volunteer group that seeks actors of all ages and sizes to populate the Bagnell Dam Strip with characters from 1931 - the year the Dam
was opened.  Oma Noma Days is a heritage festival celebrating the spirit and history of the individuals who were there at the beginning to make Lake of the Ozarks what it is today.

Be you advanced or beginner we will take you for an hour or two, a day, an evening or whatever amount of time suits you  We will costume you according to the dress of the early
1930s.  You can saunter down the Bagnell Dam Strip, sit/visit in our reenactment area, portray one of our workers or develop a more complex character from that time period.  We can
provide inspiration and direction.  Bring your whole family. We'll dress them all.

The Troupe was formed in 2006 and last year added "Hot Summer Nights" to our schedule of events.  Actors are also being called for this event to portray 1950s characters similar to
the film "Grease". Again all ages and sizes.  We already have a good group of young actors for this event. Join us.

To sign up do one of the following:
  • Attend our outdoor potluck dinner 5-8pm with dinner at 6 on Thursday, April 8 on the Strip along the sidewalk from Casablanca on down (1300 block of Bagnell Dam Blvd)
  • Attend one of our character/costume meetings. The first to be April 15th 6pm at Old Time Photos, 1321 Bagnell Dam Boulevard or call Trudie Bromet or Mary Van Houten at   573-365-5244
You don't have to attend a meeting to participate in the events. Looking forward to seeing all you talented people.
