Oregon Community Theatre recruiting actors for February production of ‘M*A*S*H’Written by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Oregon Community Theatre will host auditions for a production of “M*A*S*H” from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 21 and 22 at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 611 Woodville Road.
Director Jeff Smith is looking for 15 men and 15 women ages 16 and older.
“M*A*S*H” stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean sent to the United States and entered in a good school.
It’s not exactly like the television show, according to a news release. “Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy. There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. ‘Radar’ O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the re-creation of an old monster movie, and a monster.”
This production will be performed at 8 p.m. Feb. 14-15 and 21-22 and at 3 p.m. Feb. 16 at at Fassett Auditorium in Oregon. For tickets call (419) 691-1398 or visit the web site
