CHIPLEY — The Spanish Trail Playhouse will hold open auditions for the Lawrence Roman comedy, Alone Together on Monday, Jan. 13 and Tuesday, Jan. 14. The auditions will be held at 6 p.m. nightly at The Spanish Trail Playhouse (Historic Chipley High School) located at 680 Second Street in Chipley.
Remember those wonderful Broadway comedies of the fifties and sixties? This play by the author of Under the Yum Yum Tree is firmly in that tradition. Alone Together delighted audiences on Broadway with Janis Paige and Kevin McCarthy playing a middle aged couple whose children have finally left the nest. They are alone together, but not for long. All three sons come charging back home after experiencing some hard knocks in the real world, and Mom and Dad have quite a time pushing them out again. The action of the play takes place in the home of George and Helene Butler, located in Los Angeles, CA.
