Psych yourself up and try out

Published on January 2, 2018 12:51PM

Lincoln City’s Theatre West is holding auditions for its upcoming production of “Meanwhile, Back on the Couch,” a fast-paced comedy by Jack Sharkey.

Psychiatrist Victor Karleen is financially pressed between the rental of his posh office apartment and his fiancée’s expensive tastes. Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to romantic frustration, is grinding out a rip-roaring sex novel. By mistake, his nurse gives the patient’s manuscript to a literary agent believing it to be Victor’s work. Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection and a potential Pulitzer Prize. When he discovers that it is his patient’s confidences and not his clinical casebook that has saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter.

Director Rich Emery is looking for a cast of four women and four men.

Auditions will be held at 7 pm on Sunday and Monday, Jan. 7 and 8, at the theatre, located at 3536 Hwy. 101.

The play will run from March 8 through 31 with performances at 7:30 pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus one 2 pm matinée on Sunday, March 25. All rehearsals and performances will be at Theatre West.
