Staff Report

ORANGEVILLE, Ill. — The Northwest Illinois Theater Coalition (NWITC) is holding auditions for the third annual Cheddar Curtain.

Auditions will be at two locations — the Masonic Temple, 203 W. High St., Orangeville, Ill., from 7 to 9 p.m., Monday, Jan. 9; and the Hanover Township Hall, 250 S. Route 59, Bartlett, Ill., from 7 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 10. Parts are available for actors and singers of all ages.

The Cheddar Curtain is a compilation of one-act plays by local authors, usually set in northern Illinois or southern Wisconsin. The 2012 season is composed of three comedies, two with historic significance in the region. Several musical numbers and Vaudeville skits will be included to add to each evening’s entertainment. The Cheddar Curtain is a fun production for both experienced performers and those just “cutting their teeth” on stage.

NWITC is composed of the Mighty Richland Players in Orangeville, Plumb River Playhouse in Stockton, and Backstreet Players in Hanover. Performances of the Cheddar Curtain will be at all three venues the weekends of Feb. 24-25, March 2-3 and March 9-10.
