SSCC holding auditions for ‘Becky’s New Car’

SSCC Theatre has announced upcoming auditions for the fall production of “Becky’s New Car.” Open to community members and students, auditions will be held 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus in Hillsboro.

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management, and in a middling marriage with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. She is offered nothing short of a new life, and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare.

Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a comedic one- to two-minute monologue. Those interested in working available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview the night of auditions. If you’re interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, contact Rainee Angles ([email protected]) to schedule an alternate audition date prior to Aug. 28.

“Becky’s New Car,” directed by Angles will be performed Nov. 6-8. For more information about available roles and a rehearsal schedule, visit
