RSVP Community Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for Greater Tuna, a comedy by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. Auditions will take place on Saturday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, and Monday, March 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Moring Arts Center, 123 Sunset Avenue, in Asheboro. Performance dates are April 24-26 and May 1-3 at the Sunset Theatre.
Greater Tuna has nineteen human characters and one dog to be played by two adult men. The show will be directed by Philip Shore. Shore is not looking for specific ages or body types so much as an artistic bond between the two actors. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script without advance preparation. Actors should be willing to take a chance and try this show on from scratch.
The characters are male and female (and canine), old and young, slick and rough, ignorant and know-it-all, drunk and sober, fat and skinny and 100 per cent funny. Holding the show together are two radio announcers who broadcast to the folks of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas.
Actors will find many challenges in the parts. Characterizations are distinct and detailed. Because of all the costume changes, the pacing is Daytona. Gentlemen, start your engines and give these auditions a test drive. For more information about RSVP Community Theatre, go to RSVP Theatre on Facebook or visit www.rsvptheatre.org online. Questions?
