Snake County Au­di­tions Set

McDonald County Press - - FRONT PAGE - Sally Car­roll

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;

Em­mett — an English pro­fes­sor on va­ca­tion; and

Cooter — a long-time res­i­dent of McDon­ald County.

Per­for­mances will be held Fri­day, Jan. 25, and Satur­day, Jan. 26, at the McDon­ald County High School Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter.
