A Message from PACP President
On our quest to take you behind the curtain, our first stop is one of the first steps in production - auditions! 

Our upcoming production "Bad Auditions...On Camera" pokes a lot of fun at the process. Our auditions (we call them 'try-outs') can often be just as funny as this play is, but are much more casual. We usually just sit in comfortable furniture reading scenes from the play. It's that easy. 

Sometimes we might have accents. Sometimes we might come dressed for a role. Sometimes we might be reading for a role we never knew we wanted. We discover a voice we never knew could come out of us, or an attitude for a character that is fun to play on stage, but not in real life (villains are the most fun)! But it is always very fun! 

We'll soon be announcing an exciting season of plays with many opportunities for YOU to try-out! We'll make sure you have a good time! In the meantime, join us for "Bad Auditions...On Camera!"

Stay tuned.

Tryouts March 18, 20 at 7pm


Belinda (BP), age 60 to 65
--White, married keeper of the Cameron family genealogy. Clinging to her genteel illusions. Desperate for a grandchild.

Arnell, age 62 to 68
--BP's older sister, practical and a little worn out by her sister's resistance to change. Divorced and not looking for husband #2. Tolerant, but usually avoids conflict.

Scoop, age 65 to 70
--Belinda and Arnell's ne'er-do-well brother. Owns a dive bar in Knoxville. Might have killed a few brain cells along the way.
