Auditions held for When in Rome...

The Hilltowns Players are pleased to announce auditions for our fall 2014 musical comedy, When in Rome...  Auditions will be held Tuesday, Aug. 19, and Monday, Aug. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Helderberg Lutheran Church on Route 443 in the village of Berne, next to the high school.

You may attend both evenings if you wish but may only audition at one of them.  All ages are welcome: elementary-school age children, teens, and adults. Come prepared to read lines and to sing "God Bless America."

Rehearsals begin on Sept. 8 and will be held every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evening.

Show dates are Nov. 21, 22, and 23.  In addition to the speaking roles available, we have several song-and-dance scenes by Roman citizens — and lions, too!  I hope to see you there.

"Toga...toga...toga!"

For more information, call 872-9455 or 339-6419.

Editor’s note: Penny Shaw is the producer of When in Rome....
