Auburn Area Community Theatre announces open auditions for The Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens! on February 25th and 26th from 6-8 p.m. at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center.

Callbacks will be February 28th from 6-9 p.m. No previous experience necessary! 9 women and 4 men are needed for this riotous Southern-Fried comedy.

The Verdeen cousins from Sweetgum, Texas are at it again! Gaynelle is reeling from the demise of her loathsome ex-husband, amorous Cousin Peaches can’t find a date because men over 50 are horrified at her job as a morturarial cosmetologist, and hot-tempered Jimmy Wyvett, the no-nonsense owner of the Wide Bride Bridal Boutique, is trying to live down an on-air cat-fight with a local televangelist. Other great roles include charming 80 year-old Uncle Aubrey, who is secretly romancing two sisters at the same time, CeeCee, the talk-show host, haughty Aunt LaMerle, and a mysterious classmate from back in the day, whose “best friend” is his evil hand-puppet!

AACT needs YOU for this cast of crazy characters, ages 16 to 80’s! Come on either, or both, audition days and read from the scripts provided. Others interested in volunteering with sets, props, and other off-stage areas are also welcome to come to auditions. Contact Director Terry Kelley at Auditions@AuburnACT.org for more information.

Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays starting March 18th. Performance dates are May 10-12 and 16-19.
