Barton Community College Theatre holds open auditions for summer production of “The Proposal” and “The Bear”

Story by Micah Oelze

The Barton Theatre Department will hold open auditions for its summer production of the comedy one-acts “The Proposal” and “The Bear” by Anton Chekhov from 4-6 p.m. June 12 and 13 in the Fine Arts Auditorium. The Theatre Department is looking to cast four males and four females who are 25-60 year’s old. Those who wish to audition may show up during the allotted hours on either night. No preparation or experience is necessary.

“The Proposal,” is a comedy which tells the story of a soon to be bride and groom who fight right from the start of courtship.

“The Bear” takes love to the absurd level of comedy. The story features a widow in mourning who is confronted by a man claiming her husband owes him money. In the classic example of a farce, insults fly and a weapon is pulled before love is found.

The shows will be performed in Great Bend, Larned and St. John on July 24-26. Support in part from Dr. Donald Beahm, Dr. Luis Perez and St. John National Bank of Kansas.
