SSCC Theatre is pleased to announce their upcoming auditions for the summer production of Tom Dudzick’s Over the Tavern.
In that most idealized period of 20th-century America, the Eisenhower years of the 1950s, the Pazinski family has a lot going on in their cramped Buffalo apartment. The youngest of the bunch, 12-year-old Rudy, is a smart, wise-cracking kid who’s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. When Rudy goes up against the ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and announces that instead of being confirmed he’d rather shop around for a more “fun” religion, all hell breaks loose. A warm and hilarious look at family, growing up, and God.
Auditions, open to community members and students, will be held on Friday, May 24 at 6:30 p.m. in The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium at the Central Campus of Southern State Community College, in Hillsboro, OH. Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a one to two minute monologue, preferably comedic.

SSCC Theatre proudly presents the hilarious farce Lend Me a Tenor, opening tonight at 7:30pm. The show continues this weekend on Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:30pm.
This night in September of 1934 is the biggest in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. World famous tenor Tito Morelli (played by Jeff Horick) is to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Saunders (Bob Brown), the harried General Manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the cultural map. Morelli is nowhere to be found; but when he finally arrives drunk, it is too late for any rehearsal. Through a hilarious series of mishaps, ‘Il Stupendo’ is given a double dose of tranquilizers, which mix with the booze he has consumed, and he passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max (Benjamin Gullett) believe he is dead. What to do? Madness ensues as this hilarious farce spins out of control onstage and off. Continue reading
