Auditions Announced for SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY at Sunset Players

SSP_logoSunset Players will hold open auditions for its season opener Southern Hospitality by the hilarious writing trio of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten and directed by Don Frimming on Sunday, July 8 and Monday, July 9 at 7:00 pm at The Art Center at Dunham at 1945 Dunham Way, Cincinnati, OH 45238.

Produced by special arrangements from Dramatist Play Service, the Futrelle sisters are in a heap of trouble. Their beloved hometown of Fayro, Texas, is in danger of disappearing, and it’s up to the sisters to save it from extinction by luring a salsa manufacturing factory to town. To seal the deal, Honey Raye, who leads the Chamber of Commerce, makes promises to woo the salsa company rep to choose Fayro. So now it’s up to her sisters and the citizens of Fayro to pull together, turn her promises into reality and save their town using their Southern strength and ingenuity, which is a recipe for total hilarity.

The cast consists of eight female actors and five male actors ranging in age from 20s to 70/80s. Auditions will involve cold readings from the script. Rehearsals will start July 12. Performances are September 28, 29 and October 5, 6, 7, 11, 12 and 13. All shows are at 8PM, except Thursday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
