Little Shop of Horrors auditions

Tupelo Community Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for its opening production of its 51st season, Little Shop of Horrors with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken.  The show has been nominated for more than 20 awards winning  11 including Best Musical Off Broadway.  A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years and is one of theatre’s favorite shows.  The story tells of meek floral assistant Seymour stumbling across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II” – after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Seyour as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers “the plants” out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!  Those interested in auditioning should email director Tom Booth at 1tct@bellsouth.net for more information and to schedule a time to audition.  This diverse cast calls for up to 10 members including three African-American roles and all roles require singing.  Show dates are expected to be in mid-October.  For more information read below or call the TCT office at 662-844-1935.

TOB auditions delayed

Auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike are currently on hold and will be announced again soon.

Tupelo Community Theatre will hold auditions for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang, Sunday March 15th at 2 p.m. and Monday, March 16th at 6:30 p. m. at TCT Off Broadway 213 East Franklin Street in Downtown Tupelo.  This winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play deals with middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia, who  share their deceased parents’ home in Bucks County, PA.  The two bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives when their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness worries the imperious Masha.  The siblings (1 man and 2 women) should be able to play characters between 40 and 65 years of age.  Cassandra can be any age.  Spike’s character is in his 20’s or 30’s and must feel comfortable on stage in a speedo swim suit.  Nina’s character is in her 20’s or 30’s as well.  Lynn Nelson will direct and production dates are May 28-30.  For more information contact the director at lynn_nelson@hotmail.com or contact the TCT office at 662-844-1935.
