Fishermen's Community Theatre to host auditions

Fishermen’s Community Theatre will present “Mysterious Ways,” a lighthearted dramedy with poignant moments and serious underlying tones, June 27-29 at the Old Fire Hall in Crosslake.

The play centers around two roommates, one who is strong in her faith, the other who is equally strong against faith, and the conflict that, naturally, escalates between them, building to a powerful climax. A fun and colorful supporting cast helps complete the picture and bring the plot to life.

All are welcome to audition. Schedule an audition time by contacting Stanley Mikles at 218-820-5365.

Role descriptions:

Alex: Female lead in late 20s to early 40s — Attractive, smart, stubborn yet likeable, puts on a cheery disposition but underneath harbors anger and resentment. Strong and versatile actor who can carry a play and memorize lots of dialogue are important qualities.

Paige: Roommate — Already cast.

Ned: Male supporting character in late 20s to early 40s — A romantic poet who gets his heart broken by Alex.

Dusty: neighbor down the hall — Already cast.

Desilou: Female supporting character in early 20s — A college student, “Pollyanna” type from Louisiana. She is adorable with loads of pep. A good southern accent is a plus, but not required.

Ajay: Alex as a child — Already cast.

Chad: Male supporting character in late 20s to early 40s — Ajay’s father; strong, sympathetic, kindhearted. The audience needs to fall in love with this guy immediately.

Rehearsals will be at 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, April 30-May 30, and then rehearsals will be Mondays through Thursdays until the play opens. Lead actors will need to attend every rehearsal; supporting actors are required to attend when their characters are included in the scene(s) being rehearsed.

In addition to the on-stage roles, many behind-the-scene opportunities are available: sound/light tech, costumers, prop master, set builders and others.
