Open Auditions for Rex’s Exes

Rexs Exes Auditions at Area Community Theatre in Tomah, WI

The Area Community Theatre will present “Rex’s Exes” by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten as their winter offering to the public. Director, Nancy Jacob, is eager to hold auditions on Monday, October 19 and Tuesday, October 20 starting at 6:00 PM both evenings in the theatre’s banquet room at 907 Kilbourn Ave. in Tomah.  Parts are available for eight women and three men.

“Rex’s Exes’ is the sequel to the popular “Red Velvet Cake Wars.” This deliriously funny Southern-fried farce finds the Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas—Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette—teetering on the brink of disaster again. Gaynelle, frustrated and frazzled from working too many two-bit jobs, stubbornly refuses to face the fact she’s turning the Big 5-0. In a misguided effort to lift her cousin’s spirits, Peaches, a sassy, morturarial cosmetologist who’s stuck in a romantic dry gulch, is determined to throw Gaynelle a surprise birthday party she doesn’t even want. Jimmie Wy, riding high on the success of her new wedding gown boutique for big gals—Wide Bride—reluctantly agrees to help Peaches surprise Gaynelle. But it turns out the surprise is on them when, in a startling twist, the party plans shift to a hastily thrown-together family funeral instead. The hilarity escalates when Peaches’ recently declared dead husband unexpectedly returns and his romantic links to each of the cousins is revealed.

SHOUTOUTS FROM OUR FRIENDS

  • I love ACT because it gave me the chance to get back on the stage after a 20 year absence. It even let me share that stage with my son while performing in one of my favorite musicals! Thank you ACT!!

    ~Sam Komay

  • I always loved theatre.  In the theatre I can be or portray  almost anyone!  Imagination is a great thing.  I also love to make people laugh and cry and then laugh again!  It’s also a wonderful place to make new friends and meet old acquaintances.

    ~Steve Jones  

  • I love live theater.  Area Community Theatre allows me to see and participate in great shows without having to travel an hour or more. I have attended and helped with ACT shows for more than twenty years.  ACT increases the area’s quality of life.

    ~Barb Sullivan

  • I love ACT because I love the Arts, which are Music, Theatre, & Art. ACT & the Cultural Arts Center offer all of theses. I also love ACT because of the people who are committed to giving their time & talents for this theatre. It's offered an opportunity for me to know people I wouldn't have known otherwise.

    ~Marilyn Kernall

  • To me ACT is a group of individuals who volunteer to provide entertainment for our local community.  ACT provides an opportunity for people of all ages to make new friends and become a part of productions that family, friends and others get to enjoy. ACT provides an avenue for creativity and will not turn anyone away. Even if you want to be involved but do not want to be on stage there are many other ways to help out. ~Cherie M. Lipp Carmichael & Quartemont, S.C.

  • Great family entertainment right here in Tomah. My daughter and I haven't been disappointed. She loves it as much as I do and that is a lot for 12 years old!

    ~Mary Moodey

  • ...Everyone is so appreciative and complimentary and recognizes the hard work you put into a production. You do not feel taken for granted at all. All the hours of hard work are recognized by the patrons who attend the shows. It's sooo gratifying! ...Being on that stage is addicting! ACT and it's patrons/ members are like family to ME!! I love being involved and I love volunteering so many hours to ACT because ACT gives back to me what I need. Bridget Owens Owens Chiropractic, Tomah, WI

  • Tomah is very fortunate to have the opportunity for live theatre.  ACT is a great facility and a terrific place to take my family to experience this wonderful area of the arts.  It’s amazing to me to see all the talent of our local community members.  Long live ACT!

  • I have been involved with the Area Community Theatre for over twenty-five years. I have enjoyed meeting many new people through ACT and have made many lifetime friends as a result of my involvement. Whether I am acting, directing, selling refreshments, or popping popcorn for our patrons, there is never a dull moment when I am at the theatre. I simply can't imagine my life without being involved with ACT. It has been a very positive experience for me.
