LCT Announces Auditions for Thriller, ‘Bad Seed’

La Crosse, WI – 07/29/19 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the thriller, Bad Seed, on August 19 and 20, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.

Little Rhoda Penmark is the evil queen of the story. On the surface, she is sweet, charming, full of old-fashioned graces, loved by her parents, and admired by all of her elders. But after a boy from her class wins the penmanship medal instead of her, Rhoda’s charm turns to spite. When the boy mysteriously drowns at a picnic, Mrs. Penmark can’t shake the feeling that Rhoda was somehow involved. Would Rhoda do anything to get the medal she felt she deserved?

Bad Seed will be directed by Grant Golson. Grant assumed the role of Producing Artistic Director for LCT in August of 2017. Originally from Overland Park, Kansas, he has worked in fundraising and administration for The Lyric Opera of Kansas City and The ALS Association Mid-America Chapter. Prior to that, Grant spent ten years as an equity actor in New York City and around the country. Midway through that journey, he took a shot at directing and found it to be another great passion. Grant has an MBA from the University of Kansas.
