Interested in acting? City Park Players is holding auditions for Leading Ladies, written by Ken Ludwig.  Show dates are Thursdays – Sundays from June 1st to 11th. 3 younger women, 1 older woman, 3 younger men, and 2 older men are needed.

Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces!

Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

Auditions will be held in the Lobby of the Kress Theatre on Saturday, April 1st at 10:00 AM and Monday, April 3rd at 6:00 PM.
