A playreading for LALT’s March 2022 production, The Viewing Room: A Full Length Comedy!, will be held on Thursday December 9th at 6pm in the Green Room.
Auditions are scheduled for Saturday December 11th at 2pm, and by appointment, and will consist of readings from the script. Actors may also prepare a 1-2 minute monologue (does not have to be memorized) that shows emotional range and/or comedic timing.
Please contact director Wendy Caldwell Lanchier (email@example.com) with additional questions or to request an alternate audition appointment.
This heartfelt comedy centers on the recently deceased Chester Dumbrosky, who “awakens” in the viewing room of a funeral home as his dysfunctional family prepares to say goodbye. The cast of 8 includes Chester, his wife Florence, their five children (Matthew, Steven, Patti, Debby, and Chet Jr.), and the funeral home director Jay. Adults of all ages are invited to audition. Exceptional high school students may be considered for assistant director and/or stage crew positions.
Per the director’s rules, ALL CAST AND CREW MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED before rehearsals begin (boosters strongly encouraged and may be required before showtime). Per current state regulations, masks must be worn inside the PAC at all times.
