AUDITIONS THIS WEEK FOR EPIPHANY'S 'PICNIC'

Oct. 24, 2001 – St. John's Epiphany Theater Company is looking for actors and others to get involved in its second season — beginning with the opening production, William Inge's award-winning drama "Picnic."
Open auditions will be held Thurday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. on the second floor of the Marketplace complex. Performances will be on six weekends, running from Feb. 15 through March 24, 2002.
The casting call is for seven women and four men of "all ages and types."
"Picnic" opened on Broadway in 1953. The play, set in a small Kansas town on Labor Day, is about a lonely single schoolteacher who fears she will continue to live her life in emptiness without someone to take care of her. The plan won Inge the Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Circle Award, the Theatre Club Award and the Pulitzer Prize for drama.
The inexperienced need not be afraid to try out, company member Ginny Peck says, encouraging "anyone who ever thought they might like to be involved in a great community theater" group to come out.
The second production of the season for the community theater group will be "The Impossible Marriage" by Beth Henley. "In addition, there are plans for some shorter runs of light comedy for the summer season," Peck says.
Those interested in getting involved in Epiphany Theater Company in areas other than acting also are encouraged to attend either of the auditions or to call Michael Beason
at 776-6744. "If you have an interest or a talent in costume design, set construction, advertising, makeup or lighting and sound," Peck said, you'll be welcome.
