RUSSELL – Open auditions for the Russell Community Theater production of About Time will be held from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, at the RCT Playhouse at 5th and Kansas, Russell. Prepared audition materials are not required.
In “About Time,” an elderly married couple is found in the kitchen of their condominium at breakfast, lunch, dinner and finally for a late snack. The couple talks about everything under the sun, including food, sex, children and aging. She is slowing down some and he can’t get around like he once could. But they are both still sharp as tacks, and the snappy dialogue proves humor is one of the essential factors in survival during the aging process. Through the four scenes, they grapple with what it means to share – and come to the end of – a life together.
The two characters are portrayed as in their mid to late 60s, but men and women of all ages may audition. Production dates are Tuesday through Saturday, April 30 through May 4. “About Time” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York.
