RUSSELL — Open auditions for the Russell Community Theater production of “The Nerd” will be held May 1 and 2 from 6-9 p.m. Auditions will be held at the RCT Playhouse at Fifth and Kansas, Russell. Prepared audition materials are not required.
In “The Nerd,” Willum has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick, a fellow GI whom he never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment but his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. As Rick stays on and on, his continued presence leads to one uproarious incident after another.
Roles are available for four adult men, one male juvenile and two adult women. Production dates are Tuesday through Saturday, June 26-30, 2018. “The Nerd” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York. For more information contact RCT by calling 785-483-4057.
