TCP announces upcoming auditions

The Tyrone Community Players are kicking off the New Year right, with two upcoming productions for the public to enjoy.
First, TCP’s exciting annual Cabaret Night will be designed around a very special theme this year, one honoring the United States military, past and present. The American Legion will host the USO Tour presentation on Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31.
Vocal auditions for this event will be held in “The Building”, home of the Tyrone Community Players, at 1019 Logan Ave., and are scheduled for Sunday, January 21 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Those auditioning are asked to be prepared with a vocal selection that depicts the era of the Cabaret. Minimal dancing is required.
Second, winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Crimes of the Heart is a heartwarming, hilarious comedy/drama to be presented by the Tyrone Community Players on March 16 and 17 in the social hall of the Wesley United Methodist Church.
The scene of the show is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital.
Lenny, the eldest sister, is unmarried and facing diminishing matrimonial prospects, to her dismay. Meg, the second sister, is home after a failed attempt at a singing career on the West Coast. Then there is Babe, the youngest, who is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.
The cast is rounded out by two male characters and a female cousin who alternately love and hate the eccentric, wonderful and confusing behavior exhibited by the sisters.
Auditions for this play are open to all adults, and will be held in “The Building”, on Sunday and Monday, January 28 and 29 at 7 p.m.
