Theatre West is looking for actors to star in its upcoming production of “Borderline Crazies,” a comedy by Leo W. Sears.
The play opens with Ellen and her husband, efficiency author Stu, on vacation in a rustic Lake Tahoe cabin owned by Stu’s publisher. Ellen hopes to spend the breaking skiing and putting some spark into a dull marriage.
But the couple are startled when a horror author and his sexy wife also arrive at the apparently double-booked cabin. The women immediately bond but the men squabble like spoiled two-year-olds and devise several wagers to determine who stays and who goes. Before anyone can leave, a police officer reports that a snowstorm has closed the roads and an axe murderer is on the loose. Stranded with no phone, no television and no radio, the writers just might kill each other before the murderer gets to them.
The play promises an avalanche of laughter with more twists and turns than a giant slalom.
Director Wes Ryan is looking for three women and three men to bring the production to life.
Auditions will take place at 7 pm on Sunday and Monday, March 11 and 12, at the theater, located at 3536 Hwy. 101.
The play will run from May 10 through June 2, with performances at 7:30 pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, plus a 2 pm Sunday matinée on a date yet to be determined.
All rehearsals and performances will be at Theatre West.
