Auditions

We are so excited to hold auditions for the following show:

southern fried funeral

Show dates are June 10-13 and 17-20. Audition dates are April 26 and 27.

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces — that is if they don’t kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she’s also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey’s snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family — Southern-style.

Due to Covid-19 and needing to social distance, all 18 and over should come alone. Those under 18 must have a parent or guardian to sign waivers before auditioning. Everyone will need to wear a mask in the lobby. Please visit the link below to reserve your spot.
