Cannon Falls High School Auditorium




The Cannon Falls Community Theater is proud to present the auditions for the hilarious romantic comedy by Jerry Mayer, Aspirin & Elephants!

In the middle of winter, what sounds better than a luxurious cruise through Scandinavia? Well, join Honey and Junior as they take their two daughters and their spouses on a wild journey, where they discover the beauties of northern Europe while also exploring themselves and the nuances of marriage. It is an exciting and fast paced rom-com that will leave a smile on your face, and laughter in your heart.

The show will be directed by yours truly and will run March 23 – 25.

But first, auditions!

They will be held the evening of December 12 in the Cannon Falls High School auditorium, at 7:00pm. They will run until about 8:30, but please arrive 15-20 minutes early to fill out an audition form and to look over audition scenes.

Auditions will be ran in groups of about 3-6 people at a time. I will have excerpts of scenes that I will have you read in different combinations. I will also ask a few questions just to get a sense of your personality, also in regards to availability. No experience required.
Hope to see you there! 😁
