SCC Center Stage Theatre to Hold Open Auditions for "Becky's New Car" March 6-7

February 17, 2012

St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre is holding open auditions for the upcoming production of “Becky’s New Car,” a comedy by Steven Dietz.

Director Lonna Wilke will hold acting auditions at 7 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, March 6-7, in Room 108 of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building theater on the SCC campus in Cottleville. Center Stage Theatre invites SCC students and community residents to audition. There are parts for four men and three women. There are no children roles. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, which is on reserve in the SCC library. One-minute comedic monologues are encouraged, but not required. 

“Becky’s New Car” follows the story of Beck Foster, who is caught up in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage. “And when a woman says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.” Becky, who is going through a mid-life crisis, faces a series of choices and decisions that could happen to anyone.

The performances will be held in the theater of the Fine Arts Building Wednesday-Sunday, April 18-22.
