For the weekend - Louisville shows and auditions (Jan., Friday the 13th edition)

The Louisville theatre scene says "Happy New Year" in its own way this weekend as no less than seven shows are slated to take place. A great variety of shows, too, with comedy, classics, musicals, drama, Spanish, and some improv thrown in as well. All of it going on in several different places in the Louisville area, meaning more than likely, there's a show near you. Check them out this weekend.

Also, it's time to get new actors for new shows. How is that done, you ask? Well, just your luck, there are auditions! (I couldn't resist a cheesy Friday the 13th joke in there somewhere. My apologies!) At least five auditions are to happen before the end of the weekend, and another six are also posted. Get involved in the Louisville theatre scene today!

Last but not least, in the shameless plug category, check out Crescent Hill Radio every Friday about 11:45 a.m. You will hear me delivering the radio version of this blog! I'm very excited for this opportunity!

Enjoy!
