Mercury Players looking for The Original Cast: auditions Sunday, Wednesday

The Mercury Players is auditioning for their new comedy The Original Cast by Greg Finnigan. According to the Players’ Jennifer Lally, the synopsis of the play is fascinating.

"The nephew of the original director wants to re-establish an old playhouse. He plans to re-do the first show from 30 years before using the same cast members to present a British farce called A Weekend Away. There are doors slamming and hi-jinks and some naughty bits," she said.

Auditions will be held at the Mercury Theatre on Brae Road in Duncan on Sunday, Jan. 26 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and again on Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 7-10 p.m. Rehearsals will start Feb. 2 at 6:30 p.m. under the direction of Jim Cleough.

"We hope to see lots of you turn out for this hilarious play," Lally said.
