Wilbraham United Players will be holding auditions for their Fall production of PLAY ON by Rick Abbot. Roles are available for 7 women (age range 17-65) and 3 men (age range 20-65).
Play On is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script. The action starts as a director, stage manager, and team of actors struggle to put together a successful murder mystery in the face of an ever-changing script, and the potential for anything to go wrong. What results is a madcap, whirlwind farce that will leave the audience in stitches.
Show dates are November 2-4 and November 9-11, 2018. Auditions will be held Thursday May 31 at 6:30 PM and Friday June 1 at 6:30 PM. Auditioners will be asked to do a cold reading from the script. For further information contact director Joe Van Allen at email@example.com. Auditions and performances are held at Wilbraham United Church - 500 Main Street - Wilbraham, MA. ALL ROLES ARE OPEN
