Audition dates set for May comedy
OCONTO — Auditions for the Machickanee Players’ May production of “Wedding Belles” will be held at the Park Avenue Playhouse, 408 Park Ave., March 19 and 20 at 6:30 p.m.
In this comedy, written by Alan Bailey and Ronnie Claire Edwards and directed by Monty Witt and Pauline Grundman, four garden-club ladies meet a young girl who has come to their little Texas town to marry an infantryman before he ships off for WWII. The ladies impulsively decide to throw the couple a wedding, and their lives and friendships are thrown into turmoil as they race to accomplish it all in one frenzied afternoon. The play requires a cast of five women (four “seasoned” ladies in their 60s, and one 18-year-old bride to be).
