ORONO, Maine — The Orono Community Theatre is holding auditions for “Over the Tavern”¬† at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12 and at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13,¬† at the Keith Anderson Community House, 19 Bennoch Road.¬† Casting for the following roles: 3 boys ages 12, 13 & 15, one girl age 16 and a Catholic nun, Sister Clarissa, 70-ish. The play will be directed by Angela Bonacasa who most recently directed Orono Community Theatre‚Äôs production of The Odd Couple.
Over the Tavern is set in that most idealized period of 20th-century America, the Eisenhower years of the 1950′s. The Pazinski family has a lot going on in their cramped Buffalo apartment. The youngest of the bunch, 12-year-old Rudy, is a smart, wise-cracking kid who’s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. When Rudy goes up against the ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and announces that instead of being confirmed he’s rather shop around for a more “fun” religion, all hell breaks loose.
Performance dates are April 26-29, 2012. Rehearsals begin Sunday, Feb. 26 and will be held on Sunday and Monday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. These are open auditions and no advance preparation is required. For more information, call¬† Orono Parks & Recreation at 866-5065 or email OCT4me@gmail.com.
