:  DIANNE OLSEN, 770-683-6282

Newnan Community Theatre Company (NCTC) has set auditions for two upcoming shows, Misery and Zombie Prom.

Misery by Stephen King, adapted for the stage by Simon Moore, has roles for two adults - one male and one female.  Auditions will be Monday, August 24, and Tuesday, August 25.  Auditions will begin at 7 pm at the theatre.  Misery will be in the black box on October 31 and November 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15.  Those auditioning may attend either evening.

Zombie Prom is based on a story by John Dempsey and Hugh Murphy.  The music is by Dana P. Rowe.  The book and lyrics are by John Dempsey.  Directed by Jennifer Dorrell, this NCTC special event will be October 29 and 30 at 8 pm and October 31 at midnight.

Auditions for Zombie Prom will be on Tuesday, August 25 and Wednesday, August 26.  Auditions will be from 7 to 9 pm.  Those auditioning may attend either evening.

Those auditioning for Zombie Prom must come prepared with a 16-bar Broadway style song (ballad or up-tempo) and comfortable clothes.  There will be a dance audition and cold readings from the script.

Zombie Prom cast requirements include four females and four males in the age range of 16-30, as long as you can look like a teenager.

There are also two roles for a male and female in the age range of 35-40 (or the ability to look like it).  The female is a school principal and the male is a sleazy tabloid reporter.

All performers must have strong vocal skills and good movement ability.  The role of the female school principal is a vocally demanding part and she and the reporter have a big tango number.

NCTC is located at 24 1st Avenue in downtown Newnan.  It is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization.  For more information, visit the theatre's website at
