TRYOUTS SET FOR PAIR OF PLAYS.

Byline: Daily News

PALMDALE - The Antelope Valley College Theatre Arts Department will hold auditions for two plays to be performed in March and April.

``Tongue of a Bird'' and ``Nickel and Dimed'' will be presented as part of AVC's annual Women's Conference, March 17-April 2.

Auditions for both plays will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Black Box Theatre at the college, 3041 W. Ave. K, Lancaster.

Callbacks will be held Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

``Tongue of a Bird'' centers around a search-and-rescue pilot's determination to find an abducted girl, but also examines the emotions that bind parents to children and people to one another.

``Nickel and Dimed'' is based on Barbara Ehrenreich's best-selling book ``Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America.'' The journalist took entry-level jobs to explore life in low-wage America.

People interested in auditioning for the plays are asked to prepare a monologue of no more than two minutes in a style that is similar to either play.

Those without prepared monologues will be asked to ``cold-read'' directly from the scripts of the plays. Actors are able to audition for both plays at the same time. Scripts for the plays are on reserve in the Antelope Valley College library. For more information, call (661) 722-6394.
