    It’s the final audition to see which of the two actors, Bea or Anne, will work best opposite Ben, who has already been cast as Jim the loving husband in Lucille Flirts with the Space-Time Continuum. Bea is simply happy to be on stage while Anne is more experienced and talented. She’s also catty, devious, and has many irons in the fire. This community theatre role may just not be good enough for her. But she’s not the only one with a secret. Marjorie, the director of the play-within-the-play has some big news of her own.

    The Audition would fun to perform just before “Lucille Flirts with the Space-Time Continuum.”
