Auditions for Escanaba in da Moonlight

Escanaba in da Moonlight, written by Jeff Daniels is a hilarious comedy.  When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, thirty-five-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.

We're looking for 5 men and 1 woman of varying ages to audition for the production.
