BTCPA announces auditions for final production of season

The Bay Tree Council for the Performing Arts in Red Bay has announced audition dates for its third production of the season, “They’d Hang You in Nashville” by William and Gleason and directed by Scotty Kennedy.

Auditions will take place March 3 at 2 p.m. and March 4 at 7 p.m. at the Weatherford Centre in Red Bay.

Kennedy said the cast calls for seven male and four female parts, with older teens able to play adult parts. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the book.

Performance dates of the play will be April 25-28 at the Weatherford Centre, with tickets going on sale April 15.

Kennedy said this show is a spoof on the country and western music scene with some songs that make the show a “mini-musical.” Miss Bobbi Jo Pickens, the overweight country and western singing star, could get anyone not sufficiently respectful of her talent hung in Nashville, as two recent college graduates, Stanley and Bob, discover. The young men are trying every strategy to keep the outraged landlord from their door while Stanley writes soon-to-be-forgotten lyrics with titles such as “My Heart Fell Apart When You Went to Pieces Over Me.”

Understandably, he can’t sell these gems, and their plight is getting desperate.

Seeking remedies, the two young men find themselves in an incredible alliance with Bobbi Jo Pickens, and it’s then that they begin to discover the real meaning of “desperate.”
