“Exit Laughing” by Paul Elliot


Chautauqua Playhouse will hold auditions for the comedy “Exit Laughing” on March 12 at 7 pm.

The show will be directed by Walt Thompson. The theater address is 5325 Engle Road, in the La Sierra Community Center, Carmichael.


Audition will consist of cold reading from the script.

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you've ever done. You "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.

Parts open:

Connie—age 50-60

Leona—age 50-60

Rachel—age early 20’s

Bobby—age early 20’s


The part of Millie has been precast.

If you have questions, please email them to and they will be forwarded to the director.
