Auditions for ‘Nightmare in Suburbia’

SSCC Theatre will hold auditions for the fall production of “Nightmare in Suburbia,” a world premiere farce by Richard Farmer.

Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23 in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro.

In “Nightmare in Suburbia,” Tom, who just wants to spend a quiet weekend with his family, is quickly interrupted by a variety of characters including in-laws, an appliance technician, and a crazy uncle who wants to invade Russia… not to mention a burger that causes him stomach problems and nightmares.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a comedic one- to two-minute monologue. Those interested in working on available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions.

If interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, please contact Director Rainee Angles ([email protected]) to schedule an alternate audition date prior to Aug. 23.

“Nightmare in Suburbia” will be performed Nov. 1-3. For more information about available roles and rehearsal schedule, please visit
