Auditions for our Halloween production, Terry Pratchett’s WYRD SISTERS, are just around the corner!
Based on the beloved Terry Pratchett novel, WYRD SISTERS is the story of a coven of witches in the small, mountain-side country of Lancre. The King has been killed (totally an accident) and the kingdom taken over by his cousin Duke Felmet (who wasn’t there when it happened) at the behest of the duke’s conniving wife (who wasn’t there with him). Magrat Garlick, Nanny Ogg, and Granny Weatherwax (the maiden, the mother, and the…uh…other one) have the king’s true heir dropped into their laps, and for the sake of the kingdom must see that destiny returns the rightful seat to the throne. Not that Destiny can’t do it themselves, but they do tend to muck about at their own pace if not prodded along every now and then.
Terry Pratchett’s WYRD SISTERS has main roles for 5 women and 6 men, ages 18 and up, with several smaller roles potentially available. Rehearsals will begin September 12th and run through to the performances, October 21st through October 30th. Auditions will take place Sunday, September 4th and Tuesday, September 6th at 7 PM in the cafeteria at Blaine Middle School. Auditions will be cold readings of selections from the script.
Hope to see you there!
