AUDITION NOTICE FOR “MIXED NUTS” AT ST. FRANCIS THEATER
Mixed Nuts is an outrageous and warm hearted comedy that follows the adventures of Michael Caldwell, a shy, aspiring writer who flees his predictable life in the Midwest and moves to New York City in a quest to become a prominent writer. A series of hilarious encounters unfolds as he befriends several unconventional residents of the dilapidated apartment house that he moves into. Among them are a commercial actor who specializes in portraying inanimate objects, a Russian ballerina on the lam from the KGB and a wisecracking, beautiful actress. This uproarious and uplifting play by Nancy Manera and Simon J. Donoghue will be directed by Susan Arnold and is suitable for all ages.
The show opens at St Francis Theater Friday November 5th and runs through Sunday November 21st. St. Francis Theater Ensemble is a long-established, community-based theater program dedicated to providing meaningful, inclusive, inspiring and affordable theater experiences in an intimate setting.
