Open auditions will be held to cast a moving comedy, Living Room by William Kahele. The show will be directed by Harry Wong III and runs January 18 through February 18, 2018.
Eli’s family and friends are well-meaning, but they won’t leave him alone as he wrestles with his troubled past and uncertain future. Millie, Rose, Fannie and Junior haunt Eli with their concerns until they nearly drive him crazy. Eli’s indomitable sense of humor and a handsome stranger may be his saving grace in this comedy about the drama one local man faces alone in a crowded room.
There will be a free audition workshop held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Wednesday November 15, 2017 also at Kumu Kahua Theatre. This optional workshop is an opportunity for all interested to work with the script and director, and learn the best way to prepare for this audition.
The workshop is free, but space is limited. Please call 536-4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
