VTC holds auditions for ‘It Runs in the Family’

BRATTLEBORO — The Vermont Theatre Company will hold auditions Sunday, Oct. 2 at 1 p.m. and Monday, October 3, at 6 p.m. at the Hooker-Dunham Theater, 139 Main Street for its first production of the 2022–23 season, It Runs in the Family, written by Ray Cooney.

The show will be performed at the Evening Star Grange in Dummerston on weekends Dec. 2 to 4 and Dec. 9 to 11.

Organizers say It Runs in the Family is set in a hospital four days before Christmas. It contains the usual assortment of “farcical nuts running in and out of doors, mistaking everybody for someone else,” as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex-wife, a punkish son, and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.

There are roles for all genders ages 16 to 70. Casting will be gender blind. Interested actors are asked to prepare two contrasting contemporary monologues, with a total time not to exceed four minutes.
