BTCPA announces auditions

The Bay Tree Council for the Performing Arts in Red Bay announces auditions for its second production of the 2017-2018 season, “One Toe in the Grave,” by Jack Sharkey.

Auditions will be held at Community Spirit Bank’s Weatherford Centre Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. and Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.

The play, directed by Emily Edmonson, has three adult male and three adult female parts, with older teens being able to play young adults. The play will be performed Feb. 15-18, 2018, with practices beginning the first week in January.

Jason Kingsley is treasurer of a billion-dollar patent medicine corporation that requires its officers to be married. Kingsley claims his wife has a rare disease that prevents her from entertaining or attending corporate functions. A cure is accidentally discovered in one of the company’s patent medicines, and Kingsley’s ecstatic boss is arriving any minute with the company doctor to administer the cure and then bask in the publicity.

Kingsley, however, doesn’t really have a wife, so he cons his fiancée Nicki into pretending to be invalid.

Conning and hilarity, Kennedy said, ensue and abound as the plot progresses.

This will be the dinner theatre for the season, and groups that are interested in coming can contact Beth Hammock at 256-356-9286. For additional information contact Scotty Kennedy at 256-356-8758.
