A Classic Theatre will be holding auditions for the production Ripcord. Ripcord is the tale of two roommates who should not be in the same state, much less the same room! Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, has created a play of high-stakes hilarity! Ripcord draws you in as each character tries to rip the other to bits, and then invites the audience, and anyone who experiences this story, to embrace the idea of being present and joyful, because life is going to end whether you like it or not.
Actors are requested to bring a photo and resume, and Director Deborah Dickey will have actors read scenes from the script, and actors with prepared monologues are welcome. Auditions will be held Sunday, October 14, at 1:00pm and Friday, October 19, at 6:30pm in Unit #105 at Portman Plaza.

Abby Binder: (60’s-70’s) sarcastic, intelligent, prefers reading, and to be left alone!
