Auditions for Tri-Town Theatre’s Spring Production Set for December 13 & 14
Tri-Town Theatre’s spring comedy is Four Weddings and an Elvis. Auditions are slated for Wednesday, December 13, and Thursday, December 14, 6:00-8:15 p.m., at Sidney Memorial Public Library.
The play is set in a Las Vegas wedding chapel owned by Sandy–a four-times married, three-times divorced woman—who has seen her share of matrimonies. Sandy is early middle aged and appears in all scenes in the play. This hilarious and heartwarming play shows four of her most memorable weddings. Bev and Stan, middle aged, are getting married as revenge on their exes. Neither part has many lines. Vanessa and Bryce are two arrogant, aging second-rate, washed-up actors who are marrying as a publicity stunt. Both parts are fairly large. The third couple, Martin, a shy, gentle postal clerk, and Fiona, a tough ex-con, decides to marry despite the unexpected appearance of her partner, Fist, a big and muscular scary looking guy in his late 20’s or 30’s. Martin and Fiona can be youngish, early middle aged. John, the Elvis impersonator at the weddings, who can be youngish or early middle aged, has minimal lines. Lou, the original Elvis impersonator, is an unreliable drunkard with few lines. Lou can be played by an older man.
Rehearsals begin the second week of March, so there is plenty of time for line learning between auditions and the beginning of blocking. The production dates are May 11, 12, and 13, with performances on the Sidney High School stage under the direction of Patricia Hanson. Copies of the scenes are available at the Circulation Desk at the Sidney Library after December 1.
