Licklog Players is holding auditions for their next production, the southern red-neck comedy, “Dearly Departed.” This play is part of a trilogy which included last year’s smash hit “Southern Hospitality” in the backwoods of the Bible Belt.
The beleaguered Turpin family proves once again that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpins’ other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need.
The play calls for 10 actors, who will be playing more than one character — six women and four men. Auditions will be held this Saturday, April 16, at 10 a.m. and Monday, April 18, at 7 p.m. This production will open May 27 and will run through June 5.
