Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to audition in the upcoming Paris Community Theatre comedy “Epic Proportions,” and auditions are set for Aug. 23 and 24 at 6:30 p.m.
The theatre welcomes all ages as it is looking for a variety of actors to cast. In accordance with PCT’s new COVID-19 safety protocol, all performers must provide proof of vaccination before auditioning, and masks are required when not on stage.
Auditions will be held at the Plaza Theatre, 36 N. Plaza, in downtown Paris. Audition materials will be available on the day of auditions.
Epic Proportions is a comedic romp written by Larry Coen and David Crane and will be directed by Lucia Bunch. Bunch has been an active member of the Paris Community Theatre for several years.
The performance follows the story of two brothers, Benny and Phil, who find themselves caught up as extras in the filming of the huge Biblical epic Exeunt Omneus – soon Phil finds himself directing, and Benny starring. To make matters more difficult, the two brothers fall in love with Louise, the assistant director in charge of extras. Along the way, there are gladiator battles, dancing girls, snakes, ten plagues, and a cast of thousands.
