Men encouraged to audition for Abrams show

Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. will hold auditions for its fall show, “Escanaba in da Moonlight,” a hunting story to beat all hunting stories.

When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, 35-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady to never have bagged a buck. “Escanaba in da Moonlight” spins a tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to great lengths to shoot that elusive buck.

The play calls for six male roles of various ages and one cameo female role. Performers will have two opportunities to audition, from 6-8 p.m. Monday, July 8, or 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams. Callbacks will be from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, July 10.

Anyone 16 and older is encouraged to audition.

The show is produced by ASPI’s After Dark Division. Performance dates are Sept. 12-15 and 19-22. ““Escanaba in da Moonlight,” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
