ASTC will be casting three plays: "Blithe Spirit," directed by Timothy Pinnow; "How I Learned to Drive," directed by Cynthia Dillon; and "Holiday Memories," directed by Frank Pickard.

Approximately 20 roles are available to actors ranging from 14-50 years of age.

Actors should prepare two contemporary monologues, one serious and one comic, each no longer than two minutes. Actors also will be required to sing their favorite Christmas song, acappella for 15-30 seconds.

Actors must sign up for an audition time slot on the theater call board in the Hershel Zohn Theatre lobby before Aug. 28.
