PRESS RELEASE
RE: New Minowa Players presents Robert Wolf’s “Grand Tally”
Auditions for New Minowa Players’ Fall show, “Grand Tally” are Friday, September 20th, beginning at 6
p.m. and again Saturday, September 21st beginning at 11a.m. at New Minowa Players Theatre, 906
South Mill Street, Decorah.
Auditions will last approximately one hour. Actors will be asked to perform a cold reading. Please bring
a list of conflicts between the first rehearsal September 23rd through the final performance November
24th.
“Grand Tally” is written by local author Robert Wolf, a stage play adaptation of his novel of the same
name. Written prior to the events of the 2014 Bundy Standoff in Clark County, Nevada, but sharing
remarkable similarities, Grand Tally evokes a farcical examination of personal idols, media consumption,
and corporate accountability. The show features original compositions by Decorah connected
musicians, Brooke Joyce, Jonah Elrod & Ben Hippen.
Rehearsals will take place weeknights from September 23rd through November 24th, with occasional
weekend rehearsals if necessary. A more detailed schedule will be composed when conflicts may be
accounted for. Performance dates are November 21-24, with evening performances Thursday, Friday
and Saturday at 7, and a Sunday matinee at 2.
Questions should be directed to Sam Whitehead, director, at samuelawhitehead@gmail.com.
Sponsors for Grand Tally are Decorah Bank and Trust, Family Table Restaurant, Gallery of Tops, Iroc
Web Design Services, Pizza Ranch, RocketDog Books, Rockweiler Appliance &TV, Rick and Sheryl
Scheffert, Sogo Snacks, Singing Hammer’s Construction.
