Town Players of Pittsfield will hold auditions for a staged reading of "The Rental" by Mark Harvey Levine from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave.

The cast for this short one-act includes one man (suave and sophisticated) between the ages of 40 and 60 and one woman of any age (pleasant and "knows who she is").

The play will be directed by Milton Lestz and performed at 5:30 and 7 p.m. on Third Thursday, Sept. 18, at the Whitney.
