What's My Line?

Athens Creative Theatre will hold auditions for its upcoming spring productions at Quinn Hall at        Memorial Park.

“Smell of the Kill” auditions are set for Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 6 from     6:00 – 9:00 p.m.  This play takes three delicious, malicious wives, adds three miserable, unloving husbands and puts it on ice.  These auditions are for those who can play 21 and older. Performance dates are April 26-28. 

“Mernie’s Little Hoax” Senior Adult Readers Theatre auditions are planned for Wednesday, March 7 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Mernie, a rich widow living in the Golden Gate Retirement Community, with a ‘Retire here Expire here!’ logo—is concerned.  She devises a plan to fake her own death in order to see who among her supposed-loyal friends might be candidates in her will and hilarity ensues! These auditions are for those 50 years old and older. Show dates are scheduled for May 4-6.

Auditions take place at Quinn Hall at Memorial Park. Those interested in auditioning should call 706-613-3628 to schedule an appointment.
