Doublewide, Texas

CAT Theatre will conduct auditions for Doublewide, Texas by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten (Dixie Swim Club, The Red Velvet Cake Wars) on Sunday, March 11 and Monday, March 12 at 7 pm. Auditions will be held at the theatre at 319 North Wilkinson Road, Henrico.

Doublewide, Texas runs from June 1 through June 16, 2018.

Doublewide, Texas rounds out CAT’s 54th season with this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, where the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas – four doublewides and a shed – are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. Friends, enemies and neighbors realize they’ll have to work together to defeat the encroaching annexation if they – and their way of life – have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by ‘the big guys.’

Director Mike Fletcher is seeking three men and six women. All actors will be paid. NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY.
