Hale Centre Theatre will hold auditions for No Time for Sergeants, playing April 6, 2017 – May 13, 2017. The show is produced by David and Corrin Dietlein, directed by M. Seth Reines and casting directors David and Corrin Dietlein. Performances are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings and Saturday matinee. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
The action in the hilarious military comedy, No Time for Sergeants, centers around a group of extremely diverse World War II draftees who manage to rock the Army Air Corps boat, getting everyone into hot water from lowly recruits to the commanding general. The play by Ira Levin is based on the best-selling book by Mac Hyman, who was inspired by his own experiences in the Army Air Corps to write the novel. The Tony Award-winning play ran for nearly two years on Broadway and launched the career of the popular comic actor Andy Griffith, who was nominated for a Tony Award.
