Theater presents ‘Waiting for Godot’


WDFC Theatrical Productions will present the Samuel Beckett classic “Waiting for Godot” at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Union Hall, 547 Prospect St. Admission is $12 and tickets can be reserved by emailing

The cast includes Don Connors, Martin Daniels, Josh Lankford, Ryan Newell and Vince Siciliano.

The play follows two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone – or something – named Godot, near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness.

The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning.

The Youngstown Symphony Orchestra and Easy Street Productions has rescheduled auditions for “Guys and Dolls” to Sept. 24 in the Ford Family Recital Hall at the DeYor Performing Arts Center, 240 W. Federal St., downtown.

Those who are interested but cannot attend auditions Sept. 24 can email for options.

Actors and actresses age 16 and older are needed for this semi-staged concert version of the Broadway musical that will take place Feb. 16 at Powers Auditorium.

Auditionees are strongly encouraged to bring sheet music in the correct key for the accompanist. A cappella singing is permitted.

Callbacks and script readings for specific roles will be scheduled at a later date.
