PITTSFIELD — Town Players of Pittsfield is holding auditions Wednesday and next Thursday for a staged reading of two short plays, "The Seven Deadlies" by Amy Sarah LaMena and "Double D" by Jim Dalglish, both directed by Thomas Suski.

Auditions begin at 7 p.m. at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave.

Sides from the plays will be provided

"The Seven Deadlies" is a comedy in which the characters of Pride, Wrath, Greed, Envy, Lust and Sloth are meeting for their quincentennial board meeting to lavishly flaunt their accomplishments of tarnishing human civilization as well as interviewing potential candidates — Poor Personal Hygiene, Passive Aggression, Self Absorption and Fear — to join their conspired group.

The director is looking for a diverse cast of men and women over the age of 18 to play these 10 characters. The script does contain profanity.

"Double D" is a 15-minute play that requires a plus-sized woman (20-40) and a man (40-60) that comes off as effeminately gay.
