Shoestring Players At USC Upstate Hold Auditions For “The Miser”

12- 18- 2009

Spartanburg, S.C. - The Shoestring Players at the University of South Carolina Upstate will hold open auditions for the production of The Miser on Tuesday, January 12 at 7 p.m. in the Humanities and Performing Arts Center.  The Miser will be performed on February 25-27 at 8:00 p.m. and February 28 at 3:00 p.m.

One of the funniest plays in dramatic literature, it abounds with laughter as the son and daughter of the miser fall in love and are about to declare their intentions when the miser announces his own wedding plans. The children’s plans are disrupted when their father announced he plans to wed the girl with whom his son is in love, and his wealthy friend, to his daughter. Ticket prices are $4 for staff and students and $6 for general public.
