Theatre auditions

Central Lakes College Theatre will hold auditions for its 2012 summer theatre production Tuesday, May 29 and Wednesday, May 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. Those auditioning may choose either of the above dates. Two shows are under consideration: 1.      the classic comedy “You Can’t Take it With You” 2.      an American theatre standard, “The Curious Savage.”
“Either of these plays would be terrific summer fare,” said Patrick Spradlin, CLC Theatre director. “I’m hedging my bets by having two shows in mind. ‘Savage’ has a smaller cast, so the show I choose will depend on the number of people who audition.”
Auditions are open to the entire community as well as CLC students from any discipline. No previous theatrical experience is necessary. Neither show is a musical production.   
A cast of “You Can’t Take it With You” would include seven women and 12 men, ages late teens to mid-60s.
A cast for “The Curious Savage” would need six women and five men, late teens to mid-60s.
“Arrive at 7:30 on either night,” Spradlin said. “You will fill out forms which will ask for contact information and schedule conflicts through July 2012.”
All potential actors will be asked do readings from the scripts. Scenes will be provided at auditions.
Production dates are July 12-15 and 19-22.
Questions can be addressed to the director at or by calling (218) 855-8255.
