LEMON BAY PLAYHOUSE HOLDS OPEN AUDITIONS FOR EXIT LAUGHING: The Lemon Bay Playhouse will hold open auditions for Exit Laughing on Sunday, July 24, and Monday, July 25, at 7:00pm at the Playhouse, 96 W. Dearborn St., Englewood. The show was written by Paul Elliott and will be directed by Peter Ivanov. The script calls for four women and one man and the production will run from September 7 through September 25, 2016. This gentle comedy shows us what happens when, after 30 years, one of the four members of a "girls" bridge group dies. Things get interesting when one of the members decides to "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game. This begins one of the most zany and unforgettable nights of their lives (and yours!). For more details visit Scripts are available for perusal at the Box Office between 10:00am and 2:00pm weekdays. For information call (941) 475-6756.
