CASTING CALL SET FOR 'LADIES, SIGH NO MORE'
The Acadia Players Teen Board has announced an open casting call for youths ages 13 through 18 interested in performing in “Ladies, Sigh No More” by Thomas Hischak.
In “Ladies, Sigh No More,” a variety of Shakespeare’s heroines come to life on the stage.
Lady Macbeth plays Monopoly with Juliet and shrewish Kate battles Cordelia at Trivial Pursuit. Ophelia cuts out paper flowers, and Desdemona sews handkerchiefs. Who is the mysterious man who seems to be so interested in the fate of these ladies? Is this an Elizabethan ladies club, or a literary loony bin?
Only Dr. Wells seems to know for sure as she tries to help the women figure out their personal problems and bring closure to their theatrical lives. When Juliet is asked to reenact her tragic story, matters get out of hand and all of the ladies are caught up in the act.
The comedy ultimately twists and turns its way to a happy ending.
There are eight female and two male parts available.
The play will be produced Feb. 13 - 16, 2014, at the Acadia Parish Center for the Arts and Culture on Mill Street in Crowley.
Rehearsals will be held Mondays at 4 p.m., and no prior acting experience is necessary.
The open calls will be held Monday, Nov. 11, at 4 p.m. and Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. at the Acadia Parish Center for the Arts and Culture.
