Director Beth Shrake is seeking 6 women and 2 men, age 30’s to 70’s, for the Jones, Hope, Wooten Southern comedy, THE HALLELUJAH GIRLS.
Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. Join the fun at the SPA-DEE-DAH, the abandoned church-turned-day-spa, where this group of friends gathers every Friday. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they must do it now! The comic tension mounts when an ex-boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal comes from an unlikely suitor, and Sugar Lee’s archrival vows she’ll stop at nothing to steal the spa away from her. Silliness and fun overflow as the women rally together to overcome these obstacles.
Sugar Lee is their high-spirited, determined leader. Carlene’s given up on romance, having buried three husbands. Nita’s a nervous wreck from running interference between her son and his probation officer. Mavis is bored with her marriage.
Sweet, simple Crystal entertains them all, singing holiday carols with her own hilarious lyrics.
Auditions: Monday, March 9 & Wednesday, March 11, 2020, from 7:00-9:00 pm at he Barn in the Park, Adams Street in Troy. Please note there are no auditions on Tuesday, March 10, due to a theatre board meeting.
Plan to read from the script and be prepared to list all your time conflicts between March 15 and May 10. If you’re auditioning for the role of Crystal, plan to sing two verses of a Christmas carol or a campfire-style song and play accompaniment on keyboard or guitar. All characters will need a Southern (Georgian) accent.
Experienced actors/actresses and first-timers welcome! Helpers are also needed for the production crew: set building, set painting, props, costumes, make-up/hair, publicity, and more.
The Hallelujah Girls will be performed May 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 2020, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm.
