WILMINGTON — Theatre at Wilmington High School presents the hilarious comedy “Bad Auditions by Bad Actors” by Ian McWethy in the Wilmington High School Auditeria at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27.

Newbie director Carol has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of “Romeo and Juliet.” But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of auditioners includes extreme method actors, performers who just don’t know how to channel their rage, and one woman who may or may not think she’s a cat.
