Colonial Beach Playhouse Auditions
Savannah Sipping Society
Audition will be by reading from the script. If you are interested in auditioning, two pages of the script will be emailed to you.
Audition dates: Thursday, June 17 and Friday June 18 at 7pm. Be early or on time. It is very important to appear on one of these dates. Even better if you can make both nights. If it is impossible to make it on one of these dates, a private audition can be scheduled at a time convenient to you but preferably before June 18.
The auditions will be held at 108 Hawthorn. Social distancing will be observed.
CAST: Four women are needed. Roles are:
RANDA COVINGTON. 49. High strung. Perfectionist. Career woman.
DOT HAGLER. 69. Daffy and endearing.
MARLAFAYE MOSLEY. 57. Earthy, boisterous. Good ol’ Texas gal.
JINX JENKINS. 53. Energetic. Self confident. Gregarious. Manages a makeup store.
REHEARSALS: If cast you will receive a script immediately. Rehearsal dates and times will be arranged at the convenience of the cast.
PERFORMANCES: The performance dates (probably nine performances on three weekends) have not yet been finalized. Dates will be determined in part by the availability of the cast members. Performances will certainly be not earlier than September and no later than November.
CONTACT US: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, phone number, and email. Also indicate which date or dates you will attend, or if you wish a private audition.
We apologize for the short notice, which is due not only to Covid restrictions but to the fact that we are building a theater of our own. This will be the first play staged in our new facility.

THE FOREIGNER by Larry Shue
A Georgia fishing lodge is the scene for hilarity when a regular customer brings along a pathologically shy friend and tells everyone that his friend speaks no English. As a result, the friend overhears things he shouldn't and foils a wayward minister's sinister plans.
This much-loved American holiday classic appears as a live radio broadcast from the 1940s.

The Dixie Swim Club was the first production put on by this theatre group. It ran in September of 2018 and starred Sher Lee, Kathi Mears, Lindy Sharp, Mary Ann Tsompanas and Heather Trivett. Most, if not all the performances were completely sold out and garnered rave reviews from the attendees. Bob Christiansen directed and Yvette Roiz served as Stage Manager. Performances were held at the Community Center.
Be sure to grab some show tickets (they sell like hotcakes!) and catch one of their fun performances.
