Auditions for The Hallelujah Girls - Update

People have asked for clarification about the age requirements of my show - ANYONE can audition if they think they can play middle-aged.

Though there's no pay involved, everyone who has worked with me knows it's an absolute party. Really...You can ask anybody.

Lumiere Players' winter show will be The Hallelujah Girls, a delightful comedy (described below), directed by Matt Russell. It's a 100% volunteer project, so there's no financial compensation available. All characters are in their 50's.

Auditions will be held Saturday the 8th from 10am to 1pm and Sunday the 9th from 4-6pm at the Tualatin Heritage Center. 8700 SW Sweek Drive Tualatin, OR 97062. Resume and headshot requested. Auditions will be strictly cold readings.

Performance dates: February 26, 27, March 5,6,7,12,13,14,19, 20, 21 Fri & Sat 7:30pm Sun 2pm, all at the Heritage Center.

Thanks for your attention, and I can't wait to see you all there.

The Hallelujah Girls

Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten

Full Length

2 men, 6 women: 8 total

THE STORY: Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia, decide to shake up their lives. The action in this rollicking Southern comedy takes place in SPA-DEE-DAH!, the abandoned church-turned-day-spa where this group of friends gathers every Friday afternoon. After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they're going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now! But Sugar Lee, their high-spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. Carlene's given up on romance, having buried three husbands. Nita's a nervous wreck from running interference between her problematic son and his probation officer. Mavis' marriage is so stagnant she's wondering how she can fake her own death to get out of it. And sweet, simple Crystal entertains them all, singing Christmas carols with her own hilarious lyrics. The comic tension mounts when a sexy ex-boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal comes from an unlikely suitor and Sugar Lee's archrival vows she'll stop at nothing to steal the spa away from her. By the time the women rally together to overcome these obstacles and launch their new, improved lives, you've got a side-splitting, joyful comedy that will make you laugh out loud and shout "Hallelujah!"
