Santa Maria Civic Theatre holds auditions


The Santa Maria Civic Theatre will hold auditions on Oct. 8 and Oct. 9 for its upcoming readers theater production of The Laramie Project


Auditions take place at 7 p.m. at the theater (pictured), located at 1660 N. McClelland St., Santa Maria. The theater is casting for four men and four women, no age requirement listed. Each actor will play multiple roles; the casting directors are looking for people who can change voices depending on who they are in a scene. The play will show Nov. 17 to Nov. 19 at the theater.

The Laramie Project is set in 1989 and centers on Matthew Shepard, a young gay college student who was beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die by two men. Members of the Tectonic Theatre Project took six trips to Laramie to interview the people in the town about what happened to Shepard; the play features what they had to say about the tragic event.
