PSYCHO BEACH PARTY (Show DATES July 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28) By Charles Busch
Imagine ‘Gidget’ crossed with ‘The Three Faces of Eve’ and ‘Mommie Dearest’. Chicklet, a perky teenager in Malibu Beach circa 1962, wants to learn to surf and join a group of beach bums led by the great Kanaka. Unfortunately, she suffers from a multiple persona…lity disorder. Seeing red causes her to transform into various other selves, including a sinister vamp out to conquer the world. Complications arise when a movie starlet flees the set of her latest rotten movie to hide among the surfers. The climax is a wild luau scene where hypnosis reveals the shocking root of Chicklet’s psychosis.
PSYCHO BEACH PARTY will be directed by Gary Obeldobel. Auditions will be at The Lab Theater, 1634 Woodford Ave, Fort Myers, 33901, from 10am-12 on May 19th. Bring a monologue.

FIVE KINDS OF SILENCE (Show DATES August 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25) By Shelagh Stephenson
Shocking yet surpassingly lovely, gritty but hauntingly sympathetic, Five Kinds of Silence, is a chilling drama — a powerful exploration into what goes on behind too many closed doors all over the world. Shelagh Stephenson’s play, winner of the UK Writers Guild’s Best Original Play award and a Sony Award for Best Original Drama, is daring, innovative and disturbing. Five Kinds of Silence tells the story of a family living under the threat of constant physical and emotional abuse. It is distinctive, contemporary and theatrical. And in this story, dead men DO tell tales. Audition this Saturday from 10am-12 for this beautifully-written play by Shelagh Stephenson. FIVE KINDS OF SILENCE will be directed by Ken Bryant. Auditions will be at The Lab Theater, 1634 Woodford Ave, Fort Myers, 33901, from 10am-12 on May 19th. Bring a monologue.
