Auditions THIS Tuesday 3-31 and Thursday 4-1 for “Contempt of Court”

Winters Theatre Company will be holding auditions for “Contempt of Court” by David Landau, music by Nikki Stern.

Contempt of Court is a new non-mystery interactive comedy.   It’s a typical night at Judge Judy’s Peoples Night Court where audience members become plaintiffs, defendants, witnesses and jury in some of the most outlandishly funny lawsuits ever to double cross the bench. This hilarious comedy is not one of those ordinary courtrooms.  This play is performed in the fast and flippant way of the Marx Brothers. It will leave you rolling in the aisles laughing.  Your sides will ache.

Duke Mondhill:                     Court Officer

Sydney Schyster                   Lawyer with Springer, Schyster, and Shark

Melissa Cheatham                Lawyer with Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe
