History: Cattle calls

“Aspiring Aspen actor lands role with S’mass Repertory,” promoted The Aspen Times in June 1985. “David Ledingham knows he’s in store for a lot of ‘cattle calls’ before he becomes recognized in his field. But he’s recently passed over a major hurdle, acquiring a part in this summer’s Snowmass Repertory Theatre, that will be his ‘first professional credit.’” He landed the challenging role of Phillip in the production of “The Lion in Winter,” which was only the start of his highly successful career, including, among many other successes, founding the Pegasus Repertory Theatre in 1994.
