Casting for next Driftwood play

The two-act comedy “Full Frontal Nudity” centers on a small-town community theater performing original work which has been having trouble drawing patrons. Leading man Conrad decides the best way to bring in an audience is to give the people what they want.

Suddenly the rumors start flying about frontal nudity in the performance. Leading lady Shelly is none too pleased when she realizes everyone thinks it’s going to be her.

Auditions will be held Monday, Dec. 9, and Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Driftwood Theatre at 120 East Third Street in Aberdeen.

The director is looking for male and female actors to play 25 roles ranging in ages from late teens to 70 and older. Actors under 18 must have parental permission to participate.

Rehearsals will begin in late December and run until the opening of the production in February. For any questions or more information, contact the director at steven@puvogel.net.
