The Daytona Playhouse will open an Ormond Beach resident-heavy production next week; local beach-country band to play next Summer Sounds show; and more.
BY THE OBSERVER STAFF
Directed by Ormond Beach’s Kathy Thompson, “Captain Hook’s Revenge” will debut July 20 at the Daytona Playhouse, 100 Jessamine Blvd., starring 18 locals.
The musical comedy, by Richard Coleman, takes place on Captain Hook’s birthday — and all the pirate wants this year is to get Peter Pan. Shows will be July 20, 21, 27 and 28.
Dress up as a pirate, fairy or princess and grab a ticket — $5 for kids under 18 years old, and $10 for adults.
Auditions for “Said the Spider to the Spy,” by Fred Carmichael, will also take place 7 p.m. July 21 and 22. Five females, ages 25-55, and four males, 30-60, are needed for the September show.
Call 255-2431. Box office hours are 2-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
