Auditions for comedy ‘Naked Bigport’ next week

Print Article

The comedic play, "Naked Bigport," written by local reisdent David Vale will hold auditions Dec. 10 and 11 at the Pokcetstone Cafe.

Auditions for the new comedy, “Naked Bigport,” will be held at the Pocketstone Cafe at 7 p.m. on both Tuesday, Dec. 10 and Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Bigport is a quaint and quiet tourist destination in Northwestern Montana. Bustling with visitors during the summer, its winter is peaceful as the locals enjoy the relative solitude of nature. But when it’s rumored that Homeland Security is investigating an expose on Bigport life written by an insider and the town appears to be sitting, quite literally, on a powder keg, the residents bring out the heavy artillery and respond in the only way they know how — by staging a parade.

“There is no nudity and none of the people, places or situations are real,” said local playwright David Vale. “But it’s a story set in small-town Montana and, to those who live in a small Montana town, Bigport may feel a lot like home.”

“The characters in the play act a lot like Montanans,” Vale said. “While acting experience is always helpful, this is the sort of play where you can act by just being yourself. Thus, I encourage everyone who would like to play a role onstage to come and audition. Just come; no registration is required.”

The comedy, produced by the Bigfork Community Players, will play February 21-23 at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts. Rehearsals will be Tuesday through Friday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. starting Jan. 7. Time required will vary with role; larger roles requiring four nights a week and small ones requiring just one. Visit www.BigforkCommunityPlayers.com for more details and to preview part of the script. The Pocketstone Cafe is located at 444 Electric Ave. in Bigfork. Those interested in auditioning who cannot make the above dates, call Vale to schedule an appointment at (406) 890-1882.
