OTA sets auditions for two plays

SEQUIM — Olympic Theatre Arts plans auditions on Monday and Tuesday for The New Works Showcase and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

Both productions will be auditioning both days at the theater at 414 N. Sequim Ave.

Ages 8 to 18 will audition at 3:30 p.m. for Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

Ages 18 and older will audition at 6 p.m. for Best Christmas Pageant Ever and New Works.

New Works Showcase features eight original short plays written by local authors.

The scripts range from deep drama to high comedy. The directors are looking for a large variety of cast members. Some may be asked to do multiple roles in multiple plays. All types and experiences are encouraged to audition.

New Works will run Nov. 18-20.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a comedy Christmas play based on the book by Barbara Robinson.

A couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids — probably the most inventively awful kids in history.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever will run Dec. 1-18/
