Auditions have been announced for In the Weeds, an original script by Steve Gooch. It is the fourth script in Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's 2008-2009 staged reading season. They will take place Sunday, February 22, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Civic Theatre office at 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.
Director Brent Wick is asking auditioners to read from the script, which is available at the Civic Theatre office.
Steve has written a three-act play filled with lifelike characters, taut drama and plenty of humor. The night deposit is missing from the Bravissimo Ristorante, and suspicions fly. Is the thief the head cook with a gambling problem, the somewhat naïve restaurant manager or his less-than-competent son, the night manager? How about the college dropout, or one of the wait staff who firmly believe in better living through chemistry?
The reading will take place March 10 at 7 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre. There will be a brief discussion immediately following. It is a Pay What You Can event.
