A meeting will take place in the search and rescue building at 8:30 pm tonight where people who want to take part in the play can come and register. And the production team isn’t only looking for actors; plumbers, light-masters, seamstresses, carpenters, and make-up artists are also in demand. 

The plan is to premier the Pippi play in early March. The director is Elfar Logi Hannesson.
