The Hill Country Community Theatre announces auditions for their spring production Don’t Drink the Water by Woody Allen. The play will be directed by veteran director Steve Reily. The auditions will be held February 20 and 21, 7:00 pm at the theatre. The cast consists of twelve men and four women.
Don’t Drink the Water is the hilarious story of an American couple and their daughter on vacation in a foreign country. They are forced to seek asylum in the U.S. Embassy when they are accused of being spies. It is up to the inept son of the absent Ambassador to get the family safely back to the states.
Don’t Drink the Water enjoyed a very successful run on Broadway. It was made into a feature film starring Jackie Gleason and also as a television movie starring Michael J. Fox. Reily says, ”The play is typical of Allen’s earliest and funniest works. It is full of zany one-liners and side-splitting sight gags. It should be a lot of fun for our audience and the performers.”
Performances for Don’t Drink the Water are April 26-May 6. The theatre is located at 4003 W. FM 2147, Cottonwood Shores (click for map). For further information please call the theatre at 830-693-2474.
