Production Description

Casting a workshop for "The 10th," part one of a planned trilogy telling the story of the ski industry in the Rocky Mountain region. The play focuses on the men who were instrumental in bringing recreational skiing to the area – the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division. "The 10th" follows two recruits who join the 85th Regiment at Camp Hale in the Pando Valley for the purpose of becoming alpine soldiers. Thrown into a battalion already reeling from a disastrous mission in the Aleutian Islands, the new recruits must deal with a splintered division populated by an overly-educated army force of Dartmouth and Harvard graduates, oversize egos, cantankerous mule skinners, and the looming six week mission in the dead of winter known as “D Series.” Fortitude, faith, and fighting spirit combine to create a brotherhood of soldiers never seen before – or since.
