Auditions Set for November

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is pleased to announce auditions for the comic farce Love, Lies, & the Doctor’s Dilemma, written by Michael Parker and Susan Parker. The play centers around Joan Scheller, who is a widow, and her gardener turned boyfriend Sandy. Joan does not want her late husband’s sister Olivia St. Claire, an aging movie star, to know about her relationship and concocts a tale that sets in motion a series of lies from Joan that create hilarious misunderstandings throughout the show. Vinny “the Enforcer” comes looking for Joan’s adult son Chris who owes money to the mob for a gambling debt. The young neighbor woman Rachael unknowingly leaves chaos in her wake. The characters interact with one another using Joan’s lies

The cast is made up of three women and three men. Ages can be variable, although 18 and above is preferable, and will depend upon the chemistry of the people who show up to audition.

Performances of Love, Lies, & the Doctor’s Dilemma are scheduled for January 27 through February 12, 2023.

Auditions will be held:
Thursday November 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Saturday November 5 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm
At the Barn Community Playhouse,  12th and Ivy in Tillamook

Prospective actors may choose one audition date or both. Rehearsal schedules will be determined after the cast is named.
