Summit Productions announces auditions for 'Dearly Departed'

Auditions for the 2011 Summit Productions show Dearly Departed will be held Sunday, Nov. 21 from 3 to 5 p.m.; Monday, Nov. 22 from 7 to 9 p.m.; and Tuesday, Nov. 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. Callbacks will be held Monday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Historic Holmes Theatre. The show includes a cast of as few as 10 and as many as 18 adults, most of whom are "middle-aged" or older.

Meet the Bible Belt kin of Bud Turpin. They've got a funeral to plan and between the feuds, marital flings, and Macaroni and Ham Loaf Surprise - it may escalate into a multiple-coffin memorial service. By the time the Turpins sort through the hangovers, money problems, and headstone engraving options, they've learned that coping with life's losses can turn out to be drop-dead funny.

Rehearsals will begin the week of January 3, with practices being held at the Historic Holmes Theatre four evenings per week (which four days will be determined by the cast). The production will be presented the evenings of March 3, 4 and 5 at the Historic Holmes Theatre.
