By Heather Cullen
Theater auditions for the upcoming plays “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde and “Rabbit Hole” by David Lindsay-Abaire are fast approaching. 3-4 theater students will be trying out for these shows on Monday, Aug. 29 and Tuesday, Aug. 30 with callbacks scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 31. Theater teacher Wayde Young will be directing “Rabbit Hole” while his co worker and fellow theater coach Clark Stevens will be directing “The Importance of Being Earnest”.
Showtimes for “Rabbit Hole” will be on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20 at 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., and Friday, Oct. 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre. However, “The Importance of Being Earnest” will be performed on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov 3 at 4:30 p.m. and Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:00 p.m. Both shows are general admission and will cost $7.
These more intimate plays certainly create a level of excitement for those involved.
“It [Rabbit Hole] is a very strong story, and it’s kind of a small cast which I very much enjoy working with,” Young said. “We can really do a lot of close work together and really tell this story.”
3-4 students are also very eager to start working on these new plays as well.
“I’m excited for the upcoming plays because I haven’t been a part of big production since eighth grade,” junior Madelyn Martinez said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun working with a cast, and so far, the people in the class seem really nice and welcoming. I know it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but I’m ready to put forth that effort.”
