Valley Players Auditions for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”

SUNBURY— The Valley Players Community Theater Organization will be holding auditions for its spring production, Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Monday, February 9 and Tuesday, February 10 at 7 pm at the Courtyard Theater, Susquehanna Valley Mall from 7-9 pm. Performances of the show will be on April 10-11-12-17-18-19. Joyce Hendricks will be directing this production for The Valley Players. The cast calls for 8 adults–3 women and 5 men–of varying ages.

“The Valley Players have produced Cat twice in the past, but this time we are utilizing the most recent version (1974) updated by Tennessee Williams himself. After the success of Steel Magnolias last summer and the way our cast was able to portray so many intense levels of human emotion, we wanted to tackle a script which would give actors the opportunity to explore those levels even further,” says Joyce. This classic drama examines the web of deceit holding a wealthy Southern family together while threatening to tear them apart. Over the course of one sultry Mississippi night, the characters’ gentility disappears as accusations of greed, sexual desire, and dishonesty, long-repressed, come to the surface. A Pulitzer-winning play, the show forces the audience and characters alike to determine what is truth, what is a lie, and which lies have become the truth.
