Auditions for Spirit Voices from Old Manatee will take place this Sunday and Monday.

The auditions for the production will be from 5:30-8 p.m. both days at the Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Ave. E., Bradenton.

In its fifth season, Spirit Voice from Old Manatee is an original artistic production put on by the Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller’s office and Manatee County Historical Commission.

“The outdoor drama takes place in the month of October at Manatee Village Historical Park and the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds in Bradenton,” according to a news release. “Costumed thespians personify those interred through graveside dialogue based on narratives from archives, descendants, diaries, military logs, books and legend.”
