-- back to anniversary preparations --

The Port St. Lucie Historical Society is looking for volunteers with acting skills to play in a movie about the city’s history and will hold an open casting call Wednesday, March 31 and Thursday, April 1 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Community Center.

The docudrama, “City of Dreams,” will be released next year during the city’s 50th Anniversary celebration, and will relate the city’s history from a time when native American Indians roamed the land to modern times. The movie covers the 1950s before development began, the early days of starting a city in the 1960s, and progress and development throughout the decades.

Several scenes have been shot already, including one of the U.S. military convoying south on Federal Highway through Port St. Lucie in response to the threats of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Other scenes will be shot in upcoming months, creating the need for additional acting talent.

There are roles for men, women, children, teens, young adults and actors of all ethnicities. Appointments are not necessary. Anyone interested is asked to show up either day during the scheduled hours.

The Community Center address is 2195 S.E. Airoso Boulevard, across from City Hall. For more information, call (772) 621-6841 or send e-mail to garofalo@stluciefilmsociety.com.
