The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its production of “Lost in Yonkers” at 6:30 p.m. June 17-18 at the Performing Arts Center on Pigeon Street in Waynesville.
Wanda Taylor will direct the production and the show will run for two weeks beginning August 17.
“Lost in Yonkers” is considered to be one of Neil Simon’s finest works. It won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play. It is the story of two young brothers who go to live with their hard-edged grandmother and child-like aunt in the 1940s. The play has roles for two boys, ages 10 to 17, plus their father, aunt and grandmother.
Community theater actors will be given scenes to read from the script. Anyone auditioning as a professional actor is expected to have a headshot, resume and prepared monologue, not necessarily from the play. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up. www.harttheatre.com.
