Editor's note: The following is a press release from the Lakeville Area Arts Center.
Expressions Community Theater will be holding auditions for Wage Warfare, written by Scott Haan and directed by Andy Wilkins. Produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company.
If you’ve ever had a job, or wished you hadn’t, this office comedy is for you. Even on a good day, tensions run high in the customer service department of The Treasure Chest because of two female coworkers who can’t stand each other, and a third who is constantly stuck in the middle. But when a change for promotion suddenly appears, all three women find themselves fighting for the job, although they don’t all fight fair. Will the promotion go to daydreamer Hope, saintly Bonnie or snarky Louise? A madhouse free-for-all of schemes, sabotage and unlikely alliance erupts, unseen by their idiotic boss.
We are looking for:
Hope (20s-30s) : Young and hard-working, the middleman—er woman.
Bonnie (late 30s-60): The motherly type. Ms. Manners on the outside and a backstabber on the inside.
Mr. Clogsworth (late 20s and up): The boss. Naïve, cheerful and friendly.
UPS Man (20-30s)
Aaron Starr: Star singer and guitarist (guitar experience preferred, but not required.)
Buffy- teenage appearance: Girl whose sole life is texting.
Auditions will be held Monday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7p.m. at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, 20965 Holyoke Avenue, Lakeville. Callbacks, if required, will be held Thursday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. Auditions will consist of readings from the script, and no appointment is necessary. For more information please contact director by email at JAndrewWilkins@gmail.com or call 612-293-0173.
The play runs April 12-13 and 19-20 at 7:30 p.m. and April 14 and 21 at 2 p.m.
