Director George Hook will be holding auditions for Bleacher Bums by The Organic Theatre Company, conceived by Joe Mantegna, in the lobby of West Coast Players Theater on Sunday and Monday, January 6 and 7, at 7 pm both evenings.

In the bleachers at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, die-hard Cub fans root for their team. As the game proceeds, this motley crew bets among themselves on every conceivable event, fuels up on frosty malts or beers, tries to pick up a bathing beauty and, occasionally, watches the game. Take a seat in the stands to cheer on the comedic and undaunted bleacher bums as they root for the home team.

Performances are March 8 – 24, 2019, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm.

-Melody — an attractive and serious sun worshipper — 20s – 40s
-Rose — Zig’s wife, who secretly knows more about the Cubs than her husband – 50s – 60s

-Zig — a large man, able to bellow and chew on a cigar simultaneously — 50s – 60s
