Dozens of roles up for grabs in upcoming community plays

The Laughing Stock Theatre Society has put out an audition call for two plays in the fall in winter, with auditions taking place later this month

The Laughing Stock Theatre Society will hold auditions for two upcoming plays later this month.

The community theatre group will stage According to Rumour in September and will hold auditions on June 16 and June 17. The farce/comedy production will run at the Sagebrush Theatre from Sept. 13 to Sept. 16.

The group's December production will be Robin Hood, An Ooh Da Lally Panto, which will run from Dec. 24 to Dec. 30, also at the Sagebrush. Auditions for the panto will be held on June 23 and June 24.

No previous experience is required to audition for either play, but According to Rumour is limited to those age 16 and older, while Robin Hood is welcoming anyone age 10 and over to try out.

According to Rumour requires a cast of nine, including a pair of identical twins, while Robin Hood calls for a main cast of 16 and another 12 as part of the supporting cast.

For Robin Hood, a traditional panto, roles can be played by any gender.
