WCCT to cast the first play of season

Webster City Community Theatre announces auditions for its first production of the 2013-14 season, “House Guests can be Murder” written and directed by Sally Evans on Sunday and Monday at 7 p.m. at the theatre, 1001 Willson Avenue. The play will be performed Oct. 11 to 13 and 18 to 20.There are roles for five women and four men. The setting is two front porches on a quiet street in a good-sized Iowa town. One porch belongs to Bertha Johnson, the other to Clarence Moore. Bertha has just bought what used to be a boardinghouse and moved four of her best friends in with her. She bought the house with the money she won in a sweepstakes. Unfortunately, the local paper reported the winnings as $100,000 when it was really only $10,000. Enter “long- lost cousin” Wilhelmina who turns on the charm, but doesn’t fool neighbors Clarence and Jasper who are determined to expose the imposter and save the women. What ensues is a little romance, a little murder, and a lot of laughs.
