Thunder River Theatre Company announces auditions for its upcoming production of “Eudora’s Box” by Kristin Carlon. Kristin is a member of TRTC’s resident company. “Eudora’s Box” was TRTC’s 2010 New Play Reading selection.

When “Pop” is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, his three adult children swoop in to plan his future. As his memory begins to slip, he grows desperate to find his deceased wife’s box of personal items. The unexpected contents force the family to reevaluate their perceptions of the woman they knew as wife and mother. A bittersweet family comedy, “Eudora’s Box” proves the adage that it’s often those closest to us that we know the least.

“Eudora’s Box” will begin rehearsals mid-May and runs June 22 through July 7. TRTC is looking for two male actors, one 30ish and one who can play 75; and two women, 27 and early 50s. Company member Brad Moore directs and designs lights.

Auditions will be held on Sunday, April 15, beginning at 5 p.m. Call the theatre at 970-963-8200 for an audition appointment. If you have auditioned for TRTC before, or have been in a TRTC production, you will be reading from the script. If you have never auditioned for TRTC, prepare two contrasting monologues – no longer than two minutes each.
