Auditions for the Pirate Players Theatre Company production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night were held on February 6th, 2018, in Room 106 at Poteau High School.

Auditions were judged by Casie M. (student director), Abby E. (stage manager), Lauren Peck-Wiesenfels (director), and Justin Franks, a community member who works frequently with the Good Times Community Theatre League.


Twenty hopeful students auditioned for a small cast show.  Their audition consisted of reading a monologue from the play initially in the hopes of being called back to read a group scene.  


Students who auditioned received feedback from the judging panel that might help them with future auditions before learning who had been cast.


When the cast list was posted on Wednesday afternoon, students gathered outside room 106 to see who had been chosen.


Playing the famed twins of the story are freshman Trista F. as Viola and sophomore Dylan R. as Sebastian.  Their love interests are played by seniors Kennedy T. (Count Orsino) and Alexis M. (Olivia).


Other cast members include Brea C. (Sea Captain, Lady in waiting), Wesley B. (Sir Toby), Blain H. (clown), Hannah S. (Officer 2, Lady in waiting), Starla W. (Officer 1, Lady in waiting)Logan M. (Antonio), Jerret C. (Augucheek), Noah S. (Male Understudy)Alyssa D. (Curio), Braden C. (Malvolio), Angel S. (Fabian), Bailey P. (Maria), Molly C. (Priest), Kinsey P. (Female Understudy), Jessica M. (Female Understudy)and  Chloe G. (Valentine).


Rehearsals for the production began that Thursday.


The show opens April 19 at 7 pm in the BLK Civic Center.  Performances run through Saturday April 21; all performances will be at 7 pm.  There will be a preview performance on April 18 at 7 pm to allow for audience feedback and local media to take photos. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5; seats are general admission.
