SSCC Theatre announces auditions for THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

newsauditions2013bSSCC Theatre is pleased to announce their upcoming auditions for the fall production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.

Oscar Wilde’s classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on as Jack’s double life catches up with him. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Ernest.

Auditions, open to community members and students, will be held on Friday, August 29 at 6:30 p.m. in The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium at the Central Campus of Southern State Community College, in Hillsboro, OH. Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a comedic, one to two-minute monologue. Those interested on working in available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions. If you’re interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, please contact Rainee Angles to schedule an alternate audition date prior to August 29.

The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Rainee Angles, will be performed November 7 – 9. For more information about The Importance of Being Earnest, available roles, and a rehearsal schedule, please visit our audition page here.

The schedule for the season is:

EarnestAnnounceThe Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde. Oscar Wilde’s classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on as Jack’s double life catches up with him. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Ernest. The Importance of Being Earnest opens the season November 7 – 9.

AugustAnnounceAugust: Osage County, by Tracy Letts. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. August: Osage County runs March 27 – 29, 2015.

SpellingAnnounceThe 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, music and lyrics by William Finn, book by Rachel Sheinkin. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee closes the season July 24 – 26, 2015.
