HALLOWELL — Gaslight Theater will hold auditions for the British comedy, “Are You Being Served,” on Sunday, April 3 at 6 p.m. and Monday, April 4 at 6:30 at Hallowell City Hall Auditorium

Lovers of innuendo and British humor, “Flying Circus” fans and seekers of laughs — look no further than this uproarious play, based on the popular BBC TV series of the same name.

When the motley crew of the Grace Brothers department store prepare for a sale of German goods and then depart for a staff holiday in Spain, they survive their stay in the tropics at a one-star establishment and their encounters with everything from a Spanish crumpet to randy revolutionaries with everything intact but their modesty.

“With its innuendo-laden comedy and penchant for slapstick, “Are You Being Served?” has something for everyone.” — The BBC

There are roles for up to eight men and four women of all ages. 

The production is directed by Richard Bostwick. Auditions will be coached, cold readings from the script.

Production dates are June 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26.
