F.A.C.T. seeks dummy for ‘Belles’; auditions continue Monday

Dec 05, 2012

Auditions for Fairfield Area Community Theatre’s winter production “Belles” are extended to 7 p.m. Monday at the Fairfield High School Auditorium, according to director Scott Slechta.

Told in two acts and 45 phone calls, “Belles” visits six southern sisters, who, during the course of an autumn weekend, seek to bridge the physical and emotional distance between them via the telephone, and in the process, come to terms with their shattered family history.

Slechta wants any interested adult females to audition for this play. “The staging for this play is unique in that all dialogue takes places with each individual character remaining on the phone while on her own stage area,” he said. “There is never any direct contact between characters.”

Slechta also explained that one special character is needed for this show. One character in the play is a ventriloquist.

“F.A.C.T. needs to borrow a ventriloquist dummy from anyone in the community for this show,” he said.

Contact Slechta at scott.slechta@fairfieldsfuture.org or 472-9366.

John Grunwald and Tim Lantz assist Slechta as part of the production staff.

The dessert and dinner show will be Feb. 7, 8 and 10 and 15-17 at the Walton Club.
