LTOB slates production; auditions begin soon
* A production of Mitch Albom's Duck Hunter Shoots Angel, directed by Rosemary Cullison, is set for a run at the Little Theatre on Broadway, 3981 Broadway.
The play tells the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, a cynical New York tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer hunt them down.
The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp.
Showtimes are scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, 18 and 25, and Feb. 1; 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, 19 and 26, and Feb. 2; and 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20 and 27, and Feb. 3.
Call 614-875-3919 for tickets and other information. Several season ticket packages are available.
Those interested in volunteering for a wide array of theater activities are welcome to call the same number for information or visit ltob.org.
* Auditions for To Kill a Mockingbird, based on the novel by Harper Lee, will be at 7 p.m. on Jan. 13 and 14, at the Little Theatre on Broadway, 3981 Broadway.
Set in Alabama during the Great Depression, the play follows the journey of Jem and Scout, whose father, Atticus Finch, defends Tom Robinson, a black man framed for a crime he didn't commit. As the trial progresses, the children witness their community's tense tug of war between justice and racism.
The show calls for seven to nine men (multiple ages/ethnicities), five women (multiple ages/ethnicities), two boys and one girl. Auditioners should prepare to read from the provided script.
Showtimes are scheduled for weekends in March.
