Auditions for the play "Rank," by Robert Massey, are today and Tuesday, 6-8 p.m., at Cité des Arts in downtown Lafayette.
Auditions consist of a cold read from the script.
Rank needs two male actors ages 50's and male actors ages 28-35. Performances are Aug. 10-12, 17-19. Loren Farmer is the director.
Rank is a terse, darkly comic thriller exploring the boundaries of loyalty, trust and friendship in a cynical world of avarice and betrayal. The action of the play unfolds when one desperate taxi-man takes on a job he should have the sense the refuse. Rank examines the lure of addiction in all its forms as two gamblers struggle to resist one last throw of the dice.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
