Open auditions for 'Faith County'

Auditions for the comedy, Faith County, begin at noon on Sunday, January 13 at O'Fallon City Hall. The cast call for six women and three men.

Open auditions for the O’FallonTheatreWorks’ production of the comedy, Faith County, will begin at noon on Sunday, January 13, 2013, in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. Performances of Faith County will be held on April 19-21 and 26-28.

The cast calls for six women and three men, with an age range of 18 to 65. No acting experience is necessary, but auditioners should be ready to do a reading from the script. Rehearsals will be held one or two evenings a week and on Sundays.

Written by Mark Langdon Smith, the play centers on the Faith County Fairgrounds in Mineola, a small southern town where the beehive hairdo is still the rage and Saturday nights are reserved for the tractor pull in nearby Pickler. A colorful collection of good ole' country folk exchange gossip about one another and show off their handiwork, resulting in stiff competition in the arts and crafts category. Originally written as a radio show before being adapted to the stage, Faith County enjoyed a 35-week run on WLYX in Georgia, and it was featured as a special on NBC TV’s Dateline.

For more information about the auditions, contact Darren Granaas, O’Fallon’s Cultural Arts Coordinator, at 636-474-8150, or dgranaas@ofallon.mo.us.

Directions: On I-70 in O’Fallon, MO., take Exit 217 at Highways K/M (Main Street). Drive north on Main Street about one-half mile, cross the railroad tracks and make an immediate right into the Municipal Centre parking lot. Come to the east entrance (police lobby).
