Announcing auditions: Red, White and Tuna

Director Brent Wick has set audition dates for Red, White and Tuna, the second show of the 2011-2012 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Auditions will be held Sunday, Sept. 11 and Monday, Sept. 12 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Monon Depot Theatre on the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.

Those auditioning are asked to arrive at 7:00 p.m. and to stay for as long as needed. They will be asked to read from the script, which can be checked out from the Civic Theatre office at 313 N. 5th Street. Please bring all conflicts to auditions.

The director is seeking two men.

The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas' third smallest town. Along with Tuna's perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.

It’s been several years since we left Bertha and Arles dancing at the end of A Tuna Christmas ... Did the romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any "cosmic" communications from R.R.'s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be asked and answered in the side-splitting spoof of life in rural America.

For more information about the show, call Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette at 765-423-7529 or visit its website.
