Marble Valley Players hold Skin Deep auditions

The Marble Valley Players will hold open auditions for their March production of "Skin Deep," a romantic comedy by Jon Lonoff. In "Skin Deep," a lovable, lonely heart named Maureen Mulligan gives romance one last shot on a blind date with sweet, awkward Joseph Spinelli. She's learned to pepper her speech with jokes to hide her insecurities, while he's almost dangerously forthright, saying everything that comes to his mind. They both know they're perfect for each other, but will they be able to make it work?

Maureen and Joseph were set up on the blind date by Maureen's sister Sheila and her husband Squire, who are having interesting problems of their own. With Maureen particularly vulnerable to both hurting and being hurt, the time is ripe for many unspoken issues to bubble to the surface.

Open auditions will be held on Sunday, Jan. 27 and Monday, Jan. 28 from 6-9 p.m. at the West Rutland Town Hall. Director Gary Thompson has roles for 2 men and 2 women, mid 40's. Call Gary at 779-2722 for more info.
