Auditions for kids at HART

Kids at HART will hold auditions for “Shuddersome: Tales of Poe” at 4 p.m. Aug. 25 and 27, the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville. All middle and high school age students are invited to audition.

Specters, ghosts and ghouls come alive in this vivid theatrical adaptation of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known works. Included are The Tell-Tale Heart, The Bells, The Oval Portrait, The Raven, and The Masque of the Red Death. This is a large cast with parts for many.

One of the exciting aspects of this productions is the opportunity for students to work with five directors who are all focused on making this a positive experience for everyone: Holly Cope, Anna Denson, Tom Dewees, David Yeates and Shelia Sumpter.

Technical personnel for lights, sound, costumes, and stage management are also needed. Please bring your calendar with your schedule to determine conflicts to the audition. Most rehearsals will be held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Audition sides are available at the Hart Box Office. The production will be held at times to be determined on Oct. 21.

Open call for HCP play

Auditions will be held for the Highlands Cashiers Players production of “Guilty Conscience” by William Link and Richard L. Levinson from 3 to 5 p.m. Aug. 26-27 at the Highlands Performing Arts Center.

The play is a clever murder mystery, scheduled to run Oct. 12-15 and 19-22. Director is Michael Lanzilotta.

Two men and two women are needed for the play. One man is a famous, successful self-confident, defense attorney, 40 to 60. The other man is “The Prosecutor,” a mature man of any age, knowledgeable about criminal law, seen only in the imagination of the defense attorney. The two women are Louise Jamison, wife of the defense attorney, a patrician-looking woman, 40s to 50s, with a cool, composed manner, and Jackie Willis, a pretty, somewhat flustered woman, 20 to 30, mistress of the defense attorney.

Scripts for Guilty Conscience may be read in the libraries in Highlands or Cashiers, but cannot be checked out.
