Open auditions for the O’FallonTheatreWorks’ production of the comedy, Faith County, will begin at noon on Sunday, January 13, 2013, in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. Performances of Faith County will be held on April 19-21 and 26-28.
The cast calls for six women and three men, with an age range of 18 to 65. No acting experience is necessary, but auditioners should be ready to do a reading from the script. Rehearsals will be held one or two evenings a week and on Sundays.
Written by Mark Langdon Smith, the play centers on the Faith County Fairgrounds in Mineola, a small southern town where the beehive hairdo is still the rage and Saturday nights are reserved for the tractor pull in nearby Pickler. A colorful collection of good ole' country folk exchange gossip about one another and show off their handiwork, resulting in stiff competition in the arts and crafts category. Originally written as a radio show before being adapted to the stage, Faith County enjoyed a 35-week run on WLYX in Georgia, and it was featured as a special on NBC TV’s Dateline.
For more information about the auditions, contact Darren Granaas, O’Fallon’s Cultural Arts Coordinator, at 636-474-8150, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
