Auditions to be Held for 2012’s Last Show at the Elbert Theatre

September 7, 2012

Encore Productions at the Elbert Theatre will be holding auditions for the last play of the 2012 season, The Man Who Came to Dinner.

The auditions will be held at the Elbert Theatre on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

“You don’t have to have any kind of monologue prepared. You just come and we will have certain areas of the script marked off for you to read. You will have a little bit of time to read over, and decide what you will want to do, and that is it”, said King.

Toni King, who is the Director of the Elbert Theatre and is directing the play, says that the play calls for a pretty large cast.

“Now this is a pretty big cast, so pretty much everyone that auditions is going to be in it; unless we have twenty thousand people show up, which isn’t gonna happen. It is a big case, and I would say it will consist of just over twenty people”, said King.

If anyone has any questions, or would like more information about the play, you can contact Toni King at the Elbert Theatre Box Office at (706) 283-1049.


Play Synopsis:

Cranky radio personality Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the home of the Stanleys, slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip, and a tumultuous six weeks of confinement ensue! The Stanley living room is monopolized by the irritable invalid; ex-convicts are invited to meals; and transatlantic calls ring up a $784 phone bill.

And when Maggie, his secretary, falls in love with a local reporter, jealous Whiteside summons a glamorous actress to win away the affections of the young man. Maggie is wise to Whiteside’s tricks, and she plans to pull a few of her own! After the all of the hullabaloo, Whiteside is kicked out of the Stanley’s home, but a second later a crash is heard—he has slipped and fallen again! Come have a laugh at the expense of these silly characters straight out of 1939! You’ll just adore this zany show!
