The Valley Players Community Theater Organization will be holding auditions for its fall production at 7 p.m. Aug. 19 and 20 at the Packer House, 24 N. Third St. Performance dates are Nov. 1, 2, 8 and 9, also at the Packer House. “We’re doing things a little differently this time around, with three possible comedies in contention,” vice president Tara Deljanovan noted. “We’ll choose a script based on the people we have for auditions.” The first play is “Ghost of a Chance” by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus, and calls for three males and three females. A comical retelling of Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit,” the show follows Bethany, a bright, strong, independent women with zero self-esteem. She has brought her fiancée, Floyd, and his mother, Verna, up to her cabin in the woods, the site of the hunting accident that killed Chance, her first husband. But, Chance’s ghost is still there. A kooky psychic joins the mix and hilarity ensues. The second option is Neil Simon’s classic “The Odd Couple — Female Version,” the same funny tale of mismatched friends, but instead of Oscar and Felix, we have Olive and Florence. The cast calls for six women and two men, and tells the story of uptight fussbudget Florence who moves in with Olive, a slob with a heart of gold, when Florence falls down on her luck. Their wise-cracking friends join the fun, as well as two brothers who live in the same apartment building as they become hilarious and unlikely love interests. The final option is “Dixie Swim Club” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, playwright fixtures for the Valley Players. This play follows a group of five female friends through life’s ups and downs in poignant, but still funny, ways. More information on these shows, including character sketches, visit the Valley Players’ Facebook page, or contact Joyce Hendricks at Arrangements could also be made for perusal of one of these scripts prior to auditions by contacting Joyce.
