Snake County Auditions Set
Auditions for readers, musicians and sound effects will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Courthouse Museum on the Square in Pineville.
Anyone wanting to get a taste of the big stage is welcome to audition for the upcoming Snake County Stories in early December.
The radio play, popular with McDonald County, will be hosted again this year by the McDonald County Historical Society.
The event will help raise money for the society while offering a glimpse into history.
“This is your chance to volunteer in a new way and support your old courthouse restoration and preservation,” said Karen Dobbs, Historical Society president.
“We will have lots of fun and lots of McDonald County history will be told,” she said.
Society volunteers are seeking people for five parts. No acting experience is necessary, Dobbs added.
Auditions for readers, musicians and sound effects will take place from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Courthouse Museum on the Square in Pineville.
The parts include: Ellen — a single mother raising a child in the suburbs;
Jessie — a city child that is technically engaged;
Grandma Miller — Ellen’s mother and the grandmother of Jessie, living on her family farm;
