The Belfry Theatre is hosting auditions at 7 p.m. July 27 and 28 for 16 roles – eight men and eight women of various adult ages (stage ages 20 to 65). Auditioners for “The Desk Set” will read from script. Monologues are suggested but not required.
“The Desk Set” is a comedy rich in hilarity for anyone who has ever worked in an office. Shirley Booth is a woman with encyclopedic knowledge of facts and figures who works in a television network reference department. Electronic brains are installed to do the work of people, soon replacing whole departments, but when Emmaracs cannot best Bunny in a game of wits she causes them to blow fuses.
