Roving Park Players Hold Auditions

The Roving Park Players announce auditions for their June production and ask:

“Can a person be his own worst enemy?” Find out in Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s rowdy satire, THE RIVALS, a madcap 18th century romp among the pouty and privileged. Forbidden love, betrayal, mistaken identity, hurt feelings, bad grammar, women who read too much, and more—be a partner in the pandemonium! Seeking 8+ males and 5+ females, ages 16 and above. (Check out the character list on our webpage). Be prepared to read from the script.

Saturday & Sunday April 1 & 2, 2–4 pm / Saturday & Sunday April 8 & 9, 2–4pm at Good Samaritan Center, 3500 Hilyard St., Eugene 97405.  Call 541-686-2738 or 541-914-2374 for more information.
