Russell Community Theater Announces Open Auditions for Escanaba

RCT 100th Show in 2020Open auditions for the Russell Community Theater production of Escanaba will be held Thursday, January 16 from 7 to 9 PM.

Auditions will be held at the RCT Playhouse at 5th and Kansas in Russell. Prepared audition materials are not required.

Escanaba is the trilogy-capping comedy that begins in 1922 with Alphonse Soady putting the finishing touches on his newly-constructed deer camp. A wild-eyed James Negamanee bursts through his door fleeing a black bear. This origin story reveals the role this strange trespasser plays in time-honored Soady Deer Camp traditions, including the saga of the Soady Ridge Buck. RCT presented "Escanaba in da Moonlight" in 2007 and "Escanaba in Love" in 2017.
