LA SALLE - Director Angie McKenzie will hold auditions for “The Kitchen Witches” on Friday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. Try outs for this culinary-themed comedy by Caroline Smith will take place at the theater, 700 First St., LaSalle.
Kicking off Stage 212’s 2019 season, “The Kitchen Witches” is the story of Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle, two “mature” cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years. When circumstances put them together on a TV show, the insults are flung harder than the food. Dolly’s long-suffering TV-producer son, Stephen, tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly’s dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel’s, it is a losing battle and the show becomes a ratings smash.
McKenzie will cast two women able to play age 30-70, one man able to play 20-40, and one role suitable for either a man or a woman of any age. Perusal scripts are available by contacting the Stage 212 ticket office at (815) 224-3025. Familiarity with the script is not required to audition. “The Kitchen Witches” will be presented Feb. 1-3 and 8-10.
Stage 212 auditions are open to all regardless of prior theatrical experience. For more information, visit www.stage212.org or the Stage 212 audition page on Facebook.
