E-mail Print

Playgoers of Lethbridge want you to “Exit Laughing,” in October.
 They are holding auditions for their Oct. 22-26 production of  Paul Elliott’s comedy “Exit Laughing,” June 26 and 27 in the Casa Meeting room from 7-9 p.m.
Director Linda Johnson is keeping her cards close to her chest about what the play is about.
“I don't want to give away too much info about the play other than: "When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the girls, what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies,” she described in an e-mail.

Elliott’s new comedy “ Exit Laughing completed its developmental staging with the Reunion Theatre Group outside of Seattle  to rave reviews, then won the 2013 AACTfest with a record-breaking premiere  at the Springfield Little Theatre ‘s historic Landers Theater.  

By the end of its premiere run, Exit Laughing had broken a 50-year record for the amount of money raised and tickets sold and packed houses every night with standing room only.

 The cast requires three women in their late ’50s to ’60 to play the three southern ladies from Birmingham, Alabama , Connie, Leona and Millie who borrow the ashes of their recently deceased friend from the funeral home for one last card game and the most exciting night of their life begins as hilarity ensues involving a police raid,  a stripper and much more.
 The play also requires one woman in her early ’20s and a man in his 20s.
 They also need a producer and production staff
No preparation required.

The show runs in Country Kitchen, Oct. 22-26. Johnson hopes to begin rehearsals in mid-July.
