Auditions for High Springs Playhouse 2017-2018 Season
THE CEMETERY CLUB by Ivan Menchell
AUGUST 6th at 7:00 p.m.
AUGUST 7th at 7:00 p.m.
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt-stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.
Need four women, one man.
All characters are in their late 50s, early 60s.

The High Springs Playhouse is a ‘Community Theater’ and we encourage anyone to audition for our season productions. Experience in theater is not required. We welcome theater enthusiasts from all walks of life.
When planning to audition for an HSP production, please consider researching the particular play to see which role(s) you would be interested in and to have an understanding of the story being told. Performers should plan on providing basic information about themselves to the show director and production staff and may be asked to ‘read for’ various roles during the audition. If possible, please print out the Audition Form below and bring it to the audition already filled out with your information.
