Auditions for the classic play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest will be held at 7 P.M. on Monday October 24 and 7 P.M.  Wednesday October 26 at the new gymnasium at the Willits Charter School at 1431 South Main Street in Willits. 


The play will be directed by Billy Hetherington.   It was written by Dale Wasserman and is based on the 1962 novel by the same name by Ken Kesey.  Set in a mental hospital, it tells the story of how institutional power and the need to control people and make them conform can crush the human spirit. 


The director is seeking  4 women and 13 men, aged 16 to 70.  You can find an on-line version of the script at https://www.lths.net/cms/lib/IL01904810/Centricity/domain/767/visual%20word/acting%20chpt%207/One%20Flew%20complete%20play.pdf


To find the Willits Charter School gymnasium, go thru the gate at the east end of the parking lot, and head east.   The gymnasium is the large building behind the main building of the school. 


One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest will rehearse in December and January and will open on February 10, 2023. It will play for nine shows and will close on February 26.
