Auditions Scheduled for "Everything is Wonderful"

DSCC's theatre department to hold auditions Jan. 28 & 30

The DSCC Theatre Department will hold auditions for its spring theatre production of “Everything is Wonderful” by Chelsea Marcantel. Roles are available for three men and three women, from young adult to middle aged.

The play, which had its world premiere in 2017, has received critical acclaim and accolades in productions across the United States. The story begins with an Amish couple’s two sons being killed in a car accident, and the family struggling to maintain their faith and cling to their way of life. However, believing it is their duty required of God, the couple offers forgiveness. They take in Eric, the wayward “English” driver, who ended the lives of their boys. However, Eric’s presence unveils the family’s dark history, and prompts the eldest daughter’s return from her excommunicated and shunned existence of five years. Without a way forward, this insular community must seek to heal the deep wounds of the past, forcing everyone into a new reckoning.

DSCC’s production will be presented the last weekend in March. Auditions will be held at the First Citizens National Bank Auditorium in the Campus Activities Building on the Dyersburg campus. They are scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 28, and Thursday, Jan. 30, at 5:30 each evening.
