Fulton Community Theatre will hold open auditions for its June production, “The First Time,” from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, April 21 and 22 at Holy Trinity Church, 309 Buffalo St., Fulton.
The play “The First Time” consists of two one-act plays: “Take Five” a comedy by Westley M. Pederson, to be directed by Donald Crowe; and “Who Am I This Time?” by Christopher Sergel, based on the short story by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., to be directed by Valeri Roscoe Dedich.
No preparation is necessary for the auditions. Those auditioning will read scenes from the scripts. Entry to the building will be through the old parochial school doors on Buffalo Street. Auditions will be upstairs in the theater’s rehearsal space on the top floor of the school.
Both plays have a theatrical theme. “Take Five” take places on an opening night where the set isn’t ready, part of the cast hasn’t shown up, and a member of the audience is having a heated phone call with his wife on a phone sitting onstage. The play calls for a cast of four men and two women.
“Who Am I This Time?” tells the tale of Harry Nash, an insecure hardware store clerk who only ever really comes to life as the leading man for a local community theatre’s annual productions. When a new actress, Helene, falls in love with Harry’s stage persona, she fights to keep him from retreating back into his quiet shell. The play calls for a cast of three men and seven women.
