By Ry Herman
Directed by Tara Ayres
Co-produced by StageQ and Mercury Players Theatre, Vamp is a vinyl-clad supernatural girl-meets-girl romantic comedy. Chloe is becoming increasingly irritated by the imaginary people living in her apartment, including a bathrobe-clad Jesus and the annoyingly perky Spunky Old Gal. When she meets Angela, a Goth astrophysicist, at a nightclub, the two hit it off and begin dating. All goes well until they discover that they have been keeping disturbing secrets from each other.
Vamp will run in repertory with "Cloud 9" by Caryl Churchill.

Auditions will be held on the following days:
Mercury Players and Stage Q are holding auditions for two plays, to run in repertory between Feb. 27 and April 4. Vamp is a new comedy directed by Tara Ayres; a supernatural love story about Chloe, Angela, and the secrets they keep from each other. Cloud 9 is a satire by the great Caryl Churchill directed by Casey Grimm; a gender-, race- and time-bender show about colonialism old and new; a very wild ride. These plays will be auditioned simultaneously; all adult actors are welcome. Auditions: Monday Dec. 1 or Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 7 pm, at the Bartell Theatre, 113 E. Mifflin St. Callbacks, if necessary, Dec. 3. Wear comfortable clothes and prepare to read from scripts.
