Springs Theatre Company’s Summer Starlight Series auditions

Join the Springs Theatre Company’s for auditions to cast the 2010 Summer Starlight Series. Auditions will be held May 1,, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new Pagosa Bible Church, 209 Harman Park Dr., behind Wells Fargo Bank.

In July, the show will be “Diner Daze or A Match Made in Heaven,” a melodrama set in a 1950s diner. Performance dates will be July 8-10 and 15-17. The cast is two men and three women. The story revolves around a young man and woman, Bobby and Bunny, who dream of getting married. He’s working hard at the local diner to be able to support her. She’s looking for a career of stardom in Hollywood. Then a tragic accident leaves her with amnesia. She falls for a local hood, Nash, who, while younger, had been tormented by the local football hero, who just happens to be Bobby. Bobby works to get Bunny back. Nash enjoys the spoils of revenge. All the while, Bunny’s best friends, Cindy and Peggy Sue, aka the Bunnettes, swoon and sway to the sounds of the ’50s on the jukebox. The story reached its climax during the final scene, as Nash and Bunny prepare to get married.

In August STC will perform “Scourge of the Indigo Sapphire,” a pirate farce with performance dates of Aug. 5-7 and 12-14. This cast consists of four men, two to three women. Loosely based on a movie with a somewhat similar name, “Scourge” mostly takes place on the Caribbean island of Port Boyle. The governor and his daughter are headed to the promotion ceremony of the local naval officer. After the ceremony both the officer and the local trash collector, that is, “swordsmith”, ask the daughter for her hand in marriage. She sets a task before them and may the best man win. In an effort to find, commandeer, and steal the treasure aboard the Indigo Sapphire, the daughter, the swordsmith, the commodore, and a pirate end up on a desert island as the Sapphire’s captain tries to lift a 20-year-old curse, which will return the pirates to their former state.
