The Paper Bag Papers are looking for talent. The local theatre group is holding auditions for its next pair of plays, and whether someone is more comfortable with comedy or drama, they’ve got a play for you.
“We’re not looking for specific genders or ages, anyone 18 and up can audition,” said Bailey Lemke with the Paper Bag Players.
The first play is called Room #5, described as a strange and absurd piece that will keep the audience guessing. Lemke said that the play has elements of murder, mystery, fear, and excitement, having the audience questioning who is real and who isn’t.
Auditions will be Sept. 10 and 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Grace Presbyterian church.
While the dates for the Yorkton performance are yet to be decided, Lemke said that the group will be taking it to the TheatreOne Festival on Nov. 14-16.
For more information on that play, contact Teresa Weber at 306-621-6437.
The second play is much more lighthearted, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some), a Christmas play that runs through all manner of Christmas stories.
“The synopsis of that is the title!” jokes Lemke.
This show will go on the road, and the Paper Bag Players will be performing it through December.
Auditions are Sept. 16 and 17 at 7:00 p.m., at the Grace Presbyterian Church.
