Taos Onstage is holding auditions for Mrs. California, a comedy by Doris Baizley. The play takes place in pre-women’s lib 1955 during a homemaker’s contest. The winner is supposed to embody the epitome (at the time) of the ideal woman. Poking wicked good fun at the pretentious hokum of a hotly contested pageant where things go comically wrong, Mrs. California gives us glimpses of the complex personalities that lie beneath the judge-charming caricatures the contestants have created for themselves. Parts are available for five women and two men. Auditions will be held at the Taos Onstage Theatre at 101-A Camino de la Placita in Taos at the corner of Paseo del Pueblo Sur in Cantu Plaza (formerly JR Clothing). Performance dates are Feb. 14-18 and 21-24. For more information, contact Director Sherri Perry at [email protected] or 718-717-9185.
