The Elite Theatre Company in Oxnard is preforming Superior Donuts and are looking for talented actors to join the cast. This play is probably better recognized by most people as a CBS Television Series starring Jermaine Fowler, Judd Hirsch, Katey Segal and Dave Koechner. I'm very excited for this show to be done in our community. I applaud the Elite for doing a topical, fresh show. Come out and audition and be a part of this.
*Some roles are pre-cast but a LEAD CHARACTER is still available!
AUDITIONS: Mon Feb 19th 7 pm or Wed Feb 21st 7pm CALL BACKS: SAT Feb 24th For an audition appointment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
SUPERIOR DONUTS By Tracy Letts Directed by Larry Swerdlove
Show Dates: April 13-May 13 Fri and Sat 8 pm Sun 2 pm
Arthur Przybyszewski owns a decrepit donut shop in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Franco Wicks, a black teenager who is his only employee, wants to change the shop for the better. This comedy-drama by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Tracy Letts explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship. "…a soulful play, full of humor and humanity…drawn with deep affection." —Variety. "[Letts] never fails to impress and surprise with his finely wrought characters and sharp dialogue…a wonderfully affecting look at a vanishing world and the healing power of friendship." —CurtainUp. "…a funny and moving evening of theater…as fresh and tasty as a doughnut right out of the oven." —BackStage.
