Judy Thompson, director of the Ouachita Little Theatre’s winter play, Dearly Beloved, has announced that auditions will be held Tuesday, December 8, and Wednesday, December 9, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Mena Mountain Resort. Rehearsals will start in early January. Performances are scheduled for February 12-14 and 19-21.
The play is a fast-paced comedy about love, marriage, sisterhood, gospel music and 300 pounds of good ol’ Texas barbeque. The fabulous Futrelle sisters of Fayro, Texas, Honey Raye, Frankie, and Twink, will have you laughing all the way down the aisle in this play of the wildly-popular Futrelle Family Texas trilogy. OLT presented the second of the three plays, Christmas Belles, two years ago.
In addition to the three sisters, ages late 30s to late 40s, there are parts for four other females—three older women, and a 20-year-old who plays both of the identical twin sisters, and four males – a young seminarian and three middle-aged men who play the roles of Frankie’s husband, his best friend, and Twink’s fiancé.
