“’Boy Hero: The Story of David O. Dodd,” Auditions

The Royal Players will hold auditions for “’Boy Hero: The Story of David O. Dodd,” a historical drama written by Dr. Nancy Hendricks of Hot Springs and set in Central Arkansas during the Civil War. Audition Dates are Sunday, August 14th at 6 pm and Monday, August 15th at 6 pm at the Royal Theatre, 111 S. Market in Benton. There will be dry reads from the script. The play is directed by Randall Earnest. Author Nancy Hendricks is best known for her research and portrayal of Hattie Caraway of Arkansas, the first woman elected to the United States Senate. Show dates are October 6-9, 2016, to commemorate the 170th anniversary of the birth of David O. Dodd. This is a fundraiser for the Bryant Historical Society, as well as the Royal Players, since the Dodd family lived in that area, and the members of the society do a tremendous job of keeping that legacy alive. Director requests that those who audition be 16 years of age and up please. Theater phone is 501-315-5483; website
