Calhoun Little Theatre Auditions
September 5 - September 7
The Harris Arts Center and Calhoun Little Theatre announce auditions for their October comedy, Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will? Auditions will be held Thursday, September 5, from 6 to 8p.m., and Saturday, September 7, from 11a.m. to 1p.m., at the Harris Arts Center.
Three males and five females, ages 17 to 60+, will be cast. No special preparation is necessary; actors will read cold from the script.
Production dates for Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got the Will are set for October 24-27, 2019. Daddy’s Dyin’ is a comedy set just outside of Lowake, Texas. Family has gathered to await the impending death of their patriarch after his recent stroke. “It is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.” This Little Theatre production will be directed by Jeff Adair.
