Theatre hosts ‘Cake War’ auditions

REED CITY -— A handful of community members took on southern accents during auditions for a new play to be performed by the Crossroads Theatre Guild.

Auditions for the play “Red Velvet Cake Wars” took place from Aug. 27 through Aug. 29. The production is set to take the stage during the first and second weekends in November and tells the story of a family in Texas coming together for a reunion.

Three female relatives argue about who can make the best red velvet cake, bets are placed and the search is on for the best recipe. Meanwhile, everything that can go wrong takes place during the reunion, including a tornado.
