HFT to audition for musical salute to those in WWII


— Historic Fayette Theater will hold auditions for its next production Dec. 1 at 9:30 a.m. and Dec. 3 at 6:30 p.m.

The show is a two-act musical salute to the men and women who fought World War II.

There’s a lot of 1940’s nostalgia, too — jukeboxes, jitterbug, and the mysterious appearance of those “Kilroy was here” drawings.

The story: Ships leaving a navy yard are being sunk by Nazi U-boats. Suspicion points to a nearby U.S.O. Club which may be harboring spies. Action builds to an exciting climax during a wild radio broadcast.

Auditions are open to high school age and adults who must be able and willing to sing/dance; be prepared to do so at the audition.

No previous experience required.

Ten men, 20 women and extras are needed for the cast.
