Mark your calendar for auditions for “Battle of Shallowford” being cast by Winder-Barrow Community Theatre. The show will be directed by Don Wildsmith and Jenni Overbey, and show dates are October 25-27 & November 1-3. This comedy by Ed Simpson takes place in 1938 in a general store in Shallowford, N.C. The rest of the world is on the brink of war, but Shallowford folks are only interested in local gossip until they turn on the radio and learn that the Martians have invaded! It is the night of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds radio drama. They fall hook, line and sinker for the broadcast and run out to do battle with the Martians.
Auditions will be held at the Winder Cultural Arts Center at 105 E Athens Street in Winder, GA on Sunday, August 25th at 6:30 pm and on Monday, August 26th at 7:00 pm. Cast requirements are men ages 18 to age 70 and one female (late teens, early twenties). The audition will be a cold reading. Please bring a current photo if possible, and a list of any known conflicts between August 27th and November 3rd. Rehearsals are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday nights until the Tech week (October 21-24).
