Auditions Dates: Wednesday, Nov. 15th & Friday, Nov 17th at 6 PM

Audition Location: Puhi Theatrical Warehouse

Four mainland theaters count LOVERS, WIVES, AND TENNIS PLAYERS [4m, 3w, ages 25-50] the funniest farce they’ve ever produced. The KCP production at the Puhi Theatrical Warehouse plans to top them all, running February 23-March 11, playing Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Rehearsals to begin in January. The action takes place at a lakeside cottage. Like all good farces, this play is full of split second timing and mistaken identities leading to hilarious misunderstandings.

Audition requirements: All auditioners will be asked to read from script.
