Unhappy with her newly assigned roommate, Abby tries to coerce the recent arrival to move out in the comedy, “Ripcord,” next up for Ardmore Little Theatre.
Auditions for the show take place at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at The Goddard Center. Performances will be April 26-29.
At least three women and three men are needed for the show, but more may be cast.  The lead characters — Abby and Marilyn — are played in their 60s and both have heavy line loads.  Other characters are portrayed a generation younger than the two leads.  
 David Lindsay-Abaire’s script is a contemporary tale with both lighter moments and serious situations evolving as the irascible Abby’s attempt to oust her cheerful roommate result in a high-stakes showdown between the two strong-willed women. The rivals engage in all sorts of capers, running the gamut from childish pranks to a  mock robbery, drugging, kidnapping and an involuntary skydive.
This show brings a directorial debut for DeeAnne Dillard of Lone Grove.  She has been active with ALT since 2013 as a performer, stage hand or stage manager.  
 Additional information on the “Ripcord” roles and auditions is available on the Ardmore Little Theatre web page or on Facebook.  Copies of the script may be borrowed from the ALT office at Goddard Center.
