Darke County Civic Theater to Hold Auditions for Two Productions

Darke County Civic Theater will be holding auditions for TWO productions that will take place this summer. Auditions for "James and the Giant Peach" which will be performed in August at Paw's Bingo Hall and auditions for "D.K. Molar, The Devious Dentist" which will be performed at the Annie Oakley Festival in July will take place on Sunday April 30th, 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. at Shawnee Prairie Nature Center.

"D.K. Molar, The Devious Dentist...OR...There's Gold in them thar' teeth!" By: Billy St. John will be performed on July 28th, July 29th and July 30th at the Annie Oakley Festival that takes place at York Woods. The depraved dentist, D.K. Molar, and his noxious nurse, Nova Caine, have crafted a dastardly scam: after putting their patients to sleep with nitrous oxide, they remove the gold crowns and replace them with fakes made of fool’s gold. The unsuspecting patients are none the wiser. That is until Dr. Molar’s new receptionist, the lovely Flossy Dailey, starts chewing over some of the strange happenings in the office. With Phil de Tooth, an upstanding young dentist, she discovers Molar is prospecting for more than overbites. Molar, true to his calling, pulls a gun on them and threatens to drill anyone who tries to stop him. Rehearsals for this melodrama will take place in the months of May, June and July on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Seeking actors and actress ages 10 and older. No prior preparation is needed, as auditions will be cold readings from the script. Arrival can be anytime within the allotted audition time period. Auditioning does not guarantee a role in the production.

"James and the Giant Peach" Adapted for the stage by: David Wood, from the classic book written by Roald Dahl will be performed August 12th and 13th at Paw's Bingo Hall, joined with a benefit for the Darke County Humane Society. The story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters – Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird, and Earthworm. The play begins at the end of the story, when James and his friends are living in the giant peach stone in Central Park, New York. A tour guide brings a party of tourists (the audience) to see this major attraction, and James and his friends tell the story of how they came to live in New York. Rehearsals for this family production will take place in the months of May, June, July and August on Sunday afternoons. Seeking actors and actress ages 10 and older. Cast size could range from 6 cast members to 20 cast members, depending on the directors vision and the amount of actors/actresses that audition. No prior preparation is needed, as auditions will be cold readings from the script. Arrival can be anytime within the allotted audition time period. Auditioning does not guarantee a role in the production.
