Auditions for Light Up The Sky by Moss Hart
One reviewer noted “a loud, broad, tempestuous comedy that is acted at top speed”. It’s opening night for a new play by a young, unknown playwright. The lead actress, the backer, and several others, are hoping for a tremendous success but fear the play, which is a very earnest and experimental work, possibly spells flop. And as the play begins they turn against each other, the production, and the author. In spite of the curious reception by the first night audience, the news spreads that the reviews are on the whole favorable; the tables are turned. But the playwright who has suffered both from the enthusiasm and pessimism of his associates and is about to take a plane back home. Can he be persuaded to come back to the theater.
Auditions are Saturday, April 29 (3-5pm) and Monday, 1 (5-7pm) at Wichita Community Theatre.

Radium Girls is a gripping drama based on the true story of female laborers who were poisoned and killed by their factory’s radium-based paint. Though Radium Girls ranges from 1918 through the 1940’s, the bulk of the narrative is centered on events in New Jersey in the mid 1920’s.
The play highlights three girls who paint radium on watch dials to make them glow in the dark. The girls are instructed to finely point their brushes by molding the bristles with their mouths while painting. Soon the girls begin to fall ill as the radium attacks their bones. Directed by Leroy Clark..
