The Downeaster Theatre (TDT) will be holding open auditions for its upcoming production of "Lucky’s" Jan. 5 and 6.
“Lucky’s” is the story of a bar and the people that love it. The first performance introduces the audience to some of the main players: Bartender Pat is at his wit’s end when Barbara, the owner, tells him Lucky’s is about to go out of business. Enter freshly-fired Event Planner Tess, who really needs a drink… and a little luck.
Once a month performances of one-act original scripts with recurring cast members. Actors will be paid a small stipend per performance and audience members get to vote on what will happen during the next month’s performance.
Community members 18 and up can audition for a part in The Downeaster’s latest production on Fri., Jan. 5 from 7-9:30 p.m. or Sat., Jan. 6 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at The Downeaster Theatre, 1120 N. Pennsylvania Ave. Lansing, MI. Those auditioning need only to attend one of the audition sessions.
“I’m looking forward to presenting something unique and interactive to the community” said Executive Artistic Director, Kathryn Willis.
Community members are encouraged to mark their calendars for the “Lucky’s” production, which will be performing at The Downeaster Theatre on TBA Sundays, from Feb.-Aug. of 2018. Learn more at www.thedowneastertheatre.com

About the play: A counselor has opened an office to see how various fairy tale characters are getting along. He quickly discovers that nobody has lived ’happily ever after’ at all! Sleeping Beauty will do nothing but nap, the Frog Prince refuses to give up his amphibian ways and nothing will pry Cinderella away from her beloved cinders. The counselor sets about making everything right again, with equally disastrous results. Added to the fractured fairy tale fun are five catchy musical numbers, cameo roles for a chorus of fairy tale characters and plenty of silliness for everybody involved!

Based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson
7 W / 13 M (Less with Doubling)
Approximate Playing Time: 95 minutes
L. Don Swartz sticks to the heart of the novel, capturing on stage all the drama and excitement of this beloved classic by Robert Louis Stevenson. When an old drunken pirate, Billy Bones takes up residence at the Admiral Bow Inn, a rowdy seaside tavern frequented by pirates, sea hags and thieves, Jim Hawkins the inn keeper’s young son, gains the key to a chest that holds the map to buried treasure. Dr. Livesey, a family friend, helps Jim gain the support of Madame Trelawney, a wealthy widow who agrees to finance the voyage to recover the treasure. Hawkins, Dr. Livesey, Madame Trelawney, her servant Mr. Redruth and Captain Smollett set sail on their ship, the Hispaniola unaware that Long John Silver himself has joined the crew as a ship’s mate. He and a gnarly band of pirates also posing as legitimate crew conspire to take over the ship, kill its rightful passengers and steal the treasure.
