Twin City Stage Announces Auditions for The Red Velvet Cake War

twincitystageTwin City Stage will hold auditions for The Red Velvet Cake War at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 9 at the Arts Council Theatre, 610 Coliseum Drive, Winston-Salem. No appointment is necessary.

The Red Velvet Cake War, by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, is madcap Southern comedy at its best. The play centers on Gaynelle Verdeen Bodeen, who may soon be declared insane due to a recent escapade in which she “accidentally” crashed her car into her husband’s mistress’s double-wide. When Aunt LaMerle cancels the upcoming Verdeen family reunion, cousins Peaches Verdeen Belrose and Jimmy Wyvette Verdeen see an opportunity: if Aunt LaMerle won’t host the family reunion, Gaynelle will, proving her sanity in the process. Unfortunately, the cousins face an uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. The plot thickens when LaMerle and Gaynelle enter into a high-stakes bet regarding who bakes the best red velvet cake.

The Red Velvet Cake War will be directed by Stan Bernstein. There are roles for 3 men and

7 women. Actors will be asked to read from the script.


Performance dates for The Red Velvet Cake War are February 7-9 & 13-16, 2014. All performances will be held at the Arts Council Theatre. For more information, please call Twin City Stage at (336) 748-0857 x201 or visit the website at
