All ages invited Monday to audition for theater

In order to get as many participants as possible, the Jamestown Community Theatre announced it will choose one its three April plays following auditions.

Director Mary Wright said last week the theater was planning on three one-act plays to be held on the first weekend in April. The non-musicals chosen were two Jason Milligan plays and “The New Girl” by Vaughn McBridge. Wright has since decided to axe “The New Girl” for another play that could include more people of different ages.

Anyone interesting in auditioning can show up on Monday, Feb. 10, at the Bridge Annex at 2 Hammett Court. Children and teens should arrive at 6:30 p.m. with a parent or guardian, and adults should arrive at 7:15 p.m. Those interested in working behind the scenes should arrive between 6:45 and 7:30 p.m. to speak with producer Michelle Gibbs.

For “The Fire-Breathing Lady and the Sugarplum Fairy” by Jason Milligan, roles are needed for an overbearing Southern stage mother and father, a elementary school teacher, a boy between the ages 7 and 8, a boy between the ages 11 and 13, a girl between the ages 8 and 10 who is able to perform gymnastics, a pizza delivery boy, and a female babysitter. For “Key Lime Pie” by Jason Milligan, roles are needed for a Southern woman in her mid-20s, her older sister, an elderly man and a nurse.

A third one-act play will be chosen after tryouts so organizers can figure out a play that best fits the individuals who wants to participate. If the three acts are cast with different people, rehearsal time will be less than for the theater’s musicals.

No advance preparations are necessary. Call Wright at 741-9818 to learn more. Those who audition must work or reside in Jamestown.
