HART holds 'Dearly Departed' auditions

Jun 13, 2013

The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its August production of the Southern comedy “Dearly Departed” at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday and Monday, June 30 and July 1.

The production is being directed by Judy Dybwad. The show opens Aug. 16 for a three-weekend run. The show has lead roles for all adults of various ages.

Set in the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. The show offers great roles for six women and four men.

Actors auditioning as professionals should come with a prepared monologue, head shot, resume and musical audition piece. Actors auditioning as volunteers will be asked to cold read from a provided script.  Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.

Auditions will be held in the Feichter Studio of the HART Theatre, 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville.
