Attic Theatre casting comedy; auditions coming up Sunday and Monday

Auditions for the Attic Theatre/Thompson Community Center production of the comedy “You Know I Can’t Hear You When The Water’s Running” take place early next week.

Audition sessions run from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday and from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday at All Saints Episcopal Church on the corner of Drew Street and College Avenue in downtown Appleton.

The production features three one-act plays with an ensemble cast of three men and two women.

The first act, “A Shock of Recognition,” explores a difference of opinion between an earnest young dramatist and a matter-of-fact producer over a proposed instance of nudity in the dramatist’s play. A job-hunting actor and a secretary also get involved.

In the second act, “The Footsteps of Doves,” a husband and wife are in disagreement over whether to sleep in a double bed or in twin beds. Then, a young woman enters the furniture showroom searching for a big bed because she is all alone in her apartment.

The third act, “I’m Herbert,” focuses on an aging couple as they sit in rocking chairs and share their memories.

Performances are scheduled at 7 p.m. Feb. 8-10, 16 and 17 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 10. All performances take place at the Thompson Community Center in Appleton.

Tickets are available for purchase beginning Jan. 2. They are available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Thompson Community Center or through Attic Theatre at 920-734-7887 or by e-mailing
