LCT Announces Auditions for Fall Comedy, ‘Fools’
La Crosse, WI – 08/07/18 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the comedy, Fools, on August 27 and 28, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.
Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic: he’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic village. He arrives to find people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and milking cows upside down. The town has been cursed with chronic stupidity and anyone who stays longer than 24 hours becomes cursed as well. To further complicate matters, Leon has fallen in love with a girl so dumb that she just learned how to sit down! Can he break the curse in time?
Fools will be directed by guest artist, Liz Golson. Golson received her BFA in Music Theatre from The Hartt School in 2007 and has enjoyed acting professionally all over the country since then. After a strange and wonderful acting career, Golson began to direct and choreograph, most recently choreographing Cabaret at LCT last spring.
Auditions are open for ages 16 and up. There are roles available for men and women. A complete breakdown of roles available can be found here. First-time auditionees are welcome—no experience necessary. Signing up for auditions is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.
Performances are Thursdays through Sundays, October 11-21, 2018. The cast list will be announced during the morning show of WXOW on Friday, August 31, 2018, as well as online and on the stage door. Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled Mondays through Fridays beginning September 4, 2018. For more information, or to sign up for an audition, call 608-784-9292.
