CONCEPTION, Mo. — Open auditions for all acting roles will be held at Conception Seminary College for its upcoming production of Greater Tuna by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. The auditions will be Monday, September 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Room in the basement of St. Michael Hall on the Conception Seminary College campus in Conception, Missouri. Very flexible arrangements are possible regarding rehearsal requirements to accommodate individual needs and circumstances.

The play is a looney, hilarious comedy send-up of small-town morals and mores.  What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye, and Rev. Spikes have in common?  They are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas’ third-smallest town. The entire play takes place over a single day in the life of Tuna, where anybody’s business is everybody’s business. The glue of the town is the local radio station where all the town news, regardless of significance, is broadcast.

Production dates for the play are November 8, 9, 10.  The play is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
