"Lustful Youth"

Auditions April 4-5 in Abrams

Abrams WI March 9, 2023: Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. will hold auditions April 4 and April 5 for its summer show, “Lustful Youth” to be presented June 15-18 and 22-25. This comedy, written and directed by Mike Eserkaln, calls for male and female roles, age 16 and older. No experience is necessary, and all are welcome to audition.

“Lustful Youth” is a fast-paced farce that tells the story of a television statistician who is contractually obligated to write an evening soap opera. With the help of his muse, he wanders in and out of realities as he pieces together an out-of control romp known as “Lustful Youth.” Eserkaln, the artistic director of Comedy City in De Pere, is a veteran ASPI performer and director. Anyone planning to audition can contact ASPI, 920-826-5852 or theater.aspi@gmail.com, for access to the script.

Individuals will have two opportunities to audition: 6-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, or Wednesday, April 5, at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams. Individuals who audition should come prepared to read from the script. Rehearsals will start in April.
