The Panhandle Players are pleased to announce open auditions on Monday and Wednesday evening, Dec. 4 and 6, at 6 p.m. at the Chapman Auditorium for its winter show.

“Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” a comedy written by Katherine DiSavino, will be presented on two weekends, Jan. 26-28, and Feb. 10-12, at the Chapman. The auditions will be cold readings, and will not require an advanced knowledge of the script.

There are lots of roles for middle-aged and young people. Parts to be filled include:

Sylvia Charles - In her early 80s, living like she's in her early 20s. The mastermind behind Saucy Slips, Etc… and the proud tenant of a rent-controlled apartment.

Vera Walters - Sylvia's aged accomplice: equipped with two hearing aids and a collapsible walker.

Bridget Charles - Sylvia's unsuspecting, soon-to-be law student granddaughter.

Tom O'Grady - The newest cop on the force, happily assigned the beat where Sylvia's apartment is.

Gil Schmidt - The landlord, overly eager to rid himself of his aged tenants.

Heather Van Pree - Employee of Saucy Slips, looking for better opportunities, a modeling career, or just her boxes.

Clair- The big client. Mid '60s.

Voice- Man at the front desk. Slightly bored and always sarcastic.

UPS Man- Cute and a little lonely.

Other UPS Man - The strong and silent type.
