Announcing auditions: The Beverly Hillbillies

Director Laurie Russell has announced audition information for The Beverly Hillbillies, the fourth and final production in the 2013-2014 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. David Rogers wrote the script based on the television program by Paul Henning.

The lovable Clampett family rides onto our stage for an evening of hillbilly hilarity. Starting in the Clampetts' mountain cabin, the play follows them through the discovery of oil, their improbable invasion of hi-falutin' Beverly Hills society and the absurd adventures and ridiculous romances they encounter there.

Laurie is looking to cast nine (9) boys and twelve (12) girls ages 9-18.

Auditions will be Sunday, February 23 and Monday, February 24 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at Oakland High School, 611 S. 21st Street, Lafayette. Actors will be asked to read from the script. Auditions are by appointment; call 765-423-7529 to set an appointment.

The Beverly Hillbillies will be performed Friday, April 11 through Sunday, April 13 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show will begin at 2:30 p.m.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
