Spring play auditions are scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 8, from 3-6 p.m., and Friday, Dec. 9, from 1-3 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center theater.  All SWCC students are invited to try out!

 The spring play will be God’s Favorite by Neil Simon.  Eight roles will be cast for the play.  Rehearsals will begin when classes resume in January.  The play will be performed March 30-31 and April 1.

In God’s Favorite, successful businessman Joe Benjamin has admittedly had a wonderful life. He has a successful business selling boxes while living with his family in their beautiful Long Island mansion. Joe, being a devout religious man, attributes all of his success and happiness to the big “G” himself: God. But when an eccentric messenger from God visits, Joe's life is turned upside down! Joe, God’s favorite servant, is being put to the test; he must either renounce his faith in God or suffer severe consequences. The jokes and tests of faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious comedy.

 Questions may be directed to Kelly Franklin, Drama Club sponsor and play director.  Students do not have to be Drama Club members to perform in the spring play.
