MARINETTE — UW-Green Bay’s Theatre on the Bay (TOB) announces auditions for Craig Lucas’ comedy “Reckless.” Auditions will be held by appointment on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Marinette Campus, Fine Arts Building, Room T133 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Performances are Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 22-24.

“Reckless” is about a woman named Rachel who finds herself running for her life when her husband puts a hit out on her on Christmas Eve. Taken in by kind-hearted Lloyd and his paraplegic wife Pooty, Rachel becomes an honorary member of a new family. She soon discovers that her new friends and new life are not what they seem. The Washington Post describes “Reckless” as “written with a twisted humor” and notes that “the play explores the personal crises of people and how they cope.”

All roles are available and include: Rachel (30s-40s); Tom (Rachel’s husband, male, 30s-40s); Lloyd (male, 20s-50s); Pooty (female, 20s-50s); Tom Jr. (Rachel and Tom’s son, male, 20s), as well as a variety of doctors, derelicts, a talk show host, a female patient, a man in a ski mask, a game show host, etc. Age ranges for characters are flexible.

The play is geared toward an adult audience. The production will be directed by TOB Artistic Director Rebecca Stone Thornberry. All interested actors are encouraged to audition for this college/community production.

“You do not have to be a student, nor do you need to have prior experience with theatre or acting,” says Stone Thornberry. Marinette Campus students may receive course credit for acting in or providing technical or management assistance on the production (by registering for THEATRE 335, 336, or 338).
