Stage 212 auditions for 'Rainmaker'

LASALLE — Director Ellen Marincic has announced auditions for Stage 212’s 2014 fall production, “The Rainmaker.” N. Richard Nash’s heartwarming comedy, will be at 7 p.m. on Aug. 15 and 16 at the theater at 700 First St. in LaSalle.

Plain Lizzie Curry finds herself falling, against her better judgment, for a traveler who promises to bring rain to her family's ever-dry Texas town, just as her father and brothers have about given up hope of her ever getting married.

Marincic will be casting one woman in her early30s to play Lizzie and six men to play characters ranging in age from 20 to 60. Perusal scripts are available by calling the Stage 212 ticket office at 815-224-3025. Familiarity with the script is not required to audition.

"The Rainmaker" will be presented Nov. 7 to 9 and 14 to 16. Stage 212 auditions are open to all regardless of prior theatrical experience.
