Permian Playhouse announces auditions

The Permian Playhouse is announcing auditions for the final show of the season, the hit Harry Chapin musical, Cotton-Patch Gospel.

This show has been highly acclaimed by critics and the public alike. This award-winning musical drama is a leg-slappin', toe-tappin', hand-clappin' hoe-down of a story that retells the Gospels of Matthew and John translated into present-day Southern vernacular. It brings the far-away places of Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem closer to home _ Atlanta and Valdosta, Georgia.

Cotton-Patch Gospel will perform May 26, 27 and June 2, 3, 9-11.

Auditions will be held today and Thursday, April 5-6 _ both days at 7 p.m. Call-backs will occur Friday, April 7, at 7 p.m.

Young and old, male and female, are needed for the cast of 20-30. Scenes will be available for cold-readings and music from the show will be provided. People may provide their own prepared song if they wish.

Permian Playhouse members will note that Cotton-Patch Gospel is a replacement for The Phantom of the Country Opera.

For more information contact the Permian Playhouse at 915-362-2808.
