Auditions set for quirky ’More Fun Than Bowling’

The Port Angeles Community Players host auditions for “More Fun Than Bowling” this week, seeking two women able to play late 2’s to early 30s, a female who can play age 16 and two men aged 25-50.

Auditions are 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, in the Coffey Room at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

Copies of the script are available for preview at both the Port Angeles and Sequim Libraries.

Performances for the “quirky, funny and mysterious” production are set for April 20-May 10, on Friday, Saturday and Tuesday nights and Sunday afternoons.

The play centers around Jake who owns the bowling alley in a small Midwestern town. He is sitting on a hilltop where two of his three wives are buried: Lois was zapped by lightning while carrying a bowling trophy in a thunderstorm, and Loretta was killed by a ball return machine. In his younger days, Jake was a promising concert musician. A foul tip while playing baseball broke his fingers, which subsequently healed into a perfect bowler’s grip. Jake replays the key frames of his life and, from time to time, is visited by his daughter Molly, who has become adept at talking women into marrying her father for love and free lane time.
