Metro Theatre is holding Auditions for
A BUNCH of AMATEURS
July 24at 7:30 pm
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians – who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people… along with his inner Lear!

AUDITION NOTICE UPDATE
COMEDY OF TENORS
Written by Ken Ludwig
It’s 1937 in a Paris hotel suite; four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with exuberant fans. What could possibly go wrong?

Prepare for an uproarious ride full of mistaken identities and hijinks of operatic proportions!
