Prairie Wind Players to host auditions for upcoming play

Auditions will be held for Prairie Wind Players' production of A Nice Family Gathering on Thursday and Friday, October 7 and 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Roosevelt Hall in Barrett.

A Nice Family Gathering is about a man who loved his wife so much he almost told her. After his death he comes back as a ghost to a family gathering. His mission is to tell his wife of 41 years he loved her, something he neglected to tell her when he was alive. The problem is, she can't hear or see him. The trouble begins when his wife invites a date for dinner.

Parts are needed for Mrs. Lundeen, 60-70; Mr. Lundeen, 60-70; two Lundeen sons, 35-45; a daughter, 20-30; daughter-in-law, 35-45; and Mom's date, 60-70.

Rehearsals will begin Monday, October 11. Performances are set for Thursday through Saturday, December 2 to 4 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, December 5 at 2 p.m. Dinner will be served on Friday and Saturday nights.
