Auditions Announced for SEE HOW THEY RUN at Xenia Area Community Theatre

xactSEE HOW THEY RUN is a fast paced comedy/farce about a young vicar’s wife who is trying to fit into a small, tightly-knit town. Set in the background of World War II, things go awry when a pompous church matron comes calling unannounced and a male friend from the vicar’s wife’s past comes to visit, the bishop (the wife’s uncle) shows up early, and an escaped Russian convict hides in the house. Throw in another vicar and a witty maid, who is a little off, and you have a hilarious comedy.

Auditions for SEE HOW THEY RUN will take place Monday and Tuesday, February 22 and 23 at 6:30 p.m. at  X-Act

Directed by Richard Lee Waldeck, this British comedy is set in the idyllic village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, England during the 1940s. It’s World War II, and the village inhabitants are preparing themselves for the imminent threat of Nazi invasion. Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss Skillon, becomes convinced that her beloved vicar’s actress wife is having an affair and attempts to expose her. Add an escaped Russian prisoner of war, a handsome actor, the visiting Bishop of Lax, a rotund locum priest and some meddling neighbors and hilarious confusion and mayhem result!
