LEWISTON – King’s Bridge Theatre will hold auditions Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 14-15, for the first show to be presented by the fledgling KBT Young Actors Company for those ages 13 to 20.

The show, “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood,” is a funny, Monty Python-esque retelling of the classic story, filled with familiar characters and zany antics. The two-act play is directed by KBT Artistic Director Robbi Starnegg. Production dates for this family show are April 17-18.

Auditions will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 14 and from to 2 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Vineyard Auditorium, 12 Foss Road. Call-backs will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 15.

Those auditioning are asked to wear comfortable clothes and to allow about one hour for the audition process. They will be asked to read from the script, and some roles require improvisations.

Actors are needed for the roles of Robin Hood, the dashing hero with a large ego; Lady Marian, a lovely damsel in distress – not; Prince John, the top bad guy; Sheriff of Nottingham, Prince John’s cohort in crime; the town’s local yokel; a lady in waiting, Lady Marian’s not-so-reverent attendant; Friar Tuck, a holy relic; Will Scarlett, the wise guy; Little John, big lummox with an I.Q. of 6; Allan Adale, slightly brighter than Little John; fawning ladies, four lovelies who “fawn” over Prince John; and various other ensemble roles.
