Calling all actors — auditions open for local production

Want to be spotlighted on stage? Maybe you just always wanted to sing and dance to some classic Woodstock tunes. If that’s the case, then audition for the new play “Woodstock Chrysalis.”

The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council is hosting auditions for Ed Corrigan’s new production from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4, at the Maple Valley Creative Arts Center, located at 23220 Maple Valley Black Diamond Rd. SE, Suite 15.

“The time is 1969. The place is the iconic Woodstock Music and Art Fair where 400,000 hippies and freaks show up for three days of peace and music, and Lord knows what else,” a council press release states. “What could possibly go wrong?”

The main character and young hero of the play, Maxine, navigates the “turbulent waters” of the late 1960s, an era of war, the draft, the sexual revolution, assassinations, counter-culture and protest, the press release states.

“At 19 years old, Maxine feels her life is upside down compared to a little more than a year ago in high school,” the press release states. “What as right in 1967 is wrong in 1969. What is right in 1969 was wrong in 1967.”

Auditions are for the three remaining roles in the play to act beside Maxine’s character.

The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council is a designated nonprofit, dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of the arts in the Maple Valley community, the press release states.
