Stagelight Players to hold auditions

PIQUA — The Edison Stagelight Players are holding open auditions for Scott Crain’s “Robin Hood,” on Monday, Jan. 29 and Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. in room 107 on the Piqua campus.

Under Prince John’s rule, a young hero is forced to give up his land after defeating the Sheriff of Nottingham in an archery tournament. Robin Hood then joins forces with a like-minded ensemble of Merry Men to take back what is theirs. This play tells classic story of taking from the rich to give to the poor.

Auditions will last approximately two hours and consist of cold readings from the script. Production dates will run from April 6-15. Emily Beisner is directing the play.
