The Crowded Kitchen Players will hold open auditions from 7 to 9 p.m., on Wednesday, April 4, at McCoole's Arts and Events Place, 10 S. Main St., Quakertown, for the upcoming classic musical comedy "Animal Crackers."

The show will run the weekends of June 8 and 24.

Eleven men and 10 women, age 18 and older are needed for the play to fill singing and non-singing roles. Vocal auditions are asked to prepare a memorized 32-bar vocal selection that will show vocal strengths. An accompanist and a CD player will be provided. Please bring sheet music and/or CD.

Auditioners will perform cold readings from the script and should come dressed for a movement audition.

Non-performing opportunities are also available for stage manager, set builders, light board, sound board and box office volunteers.

"Animal Crackers" is a comedy where a society matron throws a party for zany African explorer Captain Geoffrey T. Spaulding. Unbeknownst to her, one set of guests plan to switch a famous painting of hers with a cheap imitation while another set of guests tries to switch it with an almost perfect copy. The intrepid Spaulding seizes command of the ensuing and chaotic investigation.
