Community Theatre to stage auditions for An Evening of One-Acts

TERRE HAUTE — Community Theatre of Terre Haute will present An Evening of One-Acts by Jason Miller this summer on its smaller Oakley stage. Auditions will be at 7 p.m. on April 30 and May 1 at the theater, 1431 S. 25th St. Community Theatre board member Bill Carper will direct the plays, which will be performed May 31 through June 2.

The plays:

There are three separate one-act plays: “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie,” “Circus Lady,” and “Lou Gehrig Did Not Die of Cancer.”

• “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie” has parts for one man and one woman. In the play, an old man and an old woman meet in their doctor’s waiting room. They begin a casual conversation and soon find the friendship and concern for another human being which they both need so desperately.

• “Circus Lady” has parts for three men and two women. It is the story of a grossly overweight woman who has been reduced to living in squalor and on welfare while overwhelmed with fears that the rapist-killer who has terrorized the area is coming for her next. Her son, fed up with their slovenly existence, is about to leave her. In the end she is alone, resigned to her fate, and tragically aware that it is of her own inevitable making.

• The third one-act play, “Lou Gehrig Did Not Die of Cancer,” features Victor Spinelli, a frustrated athlete who now works for his domineering father. He finds his greatest satisfaction in coaching a little league baseball team. His relationship with his wife, who is preoccupied with acting in amateur theatre, is growing cool, but he finds a kindred spirit in the mother of one of his team members, who comes by to ask that Victor show more concern for her bench-warmer son. As confidences are exchanged, the audience senses that out of the bitterness and failure that both have known a new and promising liaison is forming for them. This play has parts for one man and two women.
