Director Susan Demers will be holding auditions for Lysistrata, by Ellen McLaughlin, inspired by Aristophanes, at West Coast Players on Sunday and Monday August 4th and 5th, 7 pm both evenings.

Performances are October 4 – 20, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm.

It is 411 B.C. and the men of Greece have officially lost their minds. The war between Athens and Sparta drags on decade after decade and diplomats are helpless to bring the craziness of the conflict to an end. Enter Lysistrata, not your average housewife, who proposes to halt the bloodshed by denying the warriors all bedroom privileges. The ultimatum: lay down your arms or you are not laying down with your wife!

8 women and 5 men of a range of ages are required to bring playwright Ellen McLaughlin’s adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy to life. The language and situations are just as bawdy as you would expect an ancient play about an anti-war sex strike to be! Auditions will be a combination of physical improv and readings from the script. Balloon artist and acrobats needed as well……
