RUSSELL — Open auditions for the Russell Community Theater production of “A Bad Year for Tomatoes” will be held from 6-9 p.m. on July 31 and Aug. 2, at the RCT Playhouse at 5th and Kansas, Russell. Prepared audition materials are not required.
In “A Bad Year for Tomatoes,” actress Myra Marlowe leases a house in a tiny New England town where she hopes to get away from it all. Her long time agent is finally letting her relax a bit, but her nosy neighbors are a different matter. In an attempt to gain some privacy, she invents a crazy sister who is “locked in an upstairs room.” Complications arise when the local handyman develops feelings for “Sister Sadie” and the church ladies decide it’s their duty to save Sadie’s soul. A desperate announcement from Myra ends in an accusation of murder and the arrival of the sheriff.
Roles are available for four adult women and three adult men. Production dates are Tuesday through Saturday, Oct. 16-20. “A Bad Year for Tomatoes” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York. For more information, contact RCT by telephone, 785-483-4057.
