Actors and actresses throughout the Big Horn Basin are invited to audition to take part in the upcoming community theater presentation of “Laugh? I Nearly Went to Miami!” which will be performed Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 6-8.

Auditions are scheduled to take place in the Northwest College Nelson Performing Arts Auditorium Wednesday through Friday, Sept. 12-14, at 6:30 p.m. each evening. The play will be directed by NWC Assistant Professor of Speech Communications Fred Ebert.

Miles Tredinnick, author of the play, describes the production as “a zany and fast moving comedy of confusion.”

The play tells the tale of a man named Tom Weals, an Elvis fanatic, and his fiancée Alice. After being unable to fly to Miami, due to fog, for an Elvis Presley Convention, they arrive back at Tom’s Essex flat to learn that they have accidentally picked up the wrong suitcases at the airport and are now in possession of half a million dollars. 

There will be several opportunities for those interested in helping backstage with set construction, costuming and makeup. Individuals of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in the production.

Aspiring actors and actresses, along with those interested in backstage duties, as well as other community theater enthusiasts, are invited to drop in at any point during the auditions.
