The Loop Players are holding a second round of auditions for 1Harry & the Thief by Sigrid Gilmer.
Mimi's cousin Jeremy has a PhD in physics, a brand-new time machine and a plan. He's sending Mimi, a professional thief, back to 1863 to change history by providing Harriet Tubman with modern day guns. Lots and lots of guns.
