The Albright Theatre Company in Batavia will hold auditions for "Beautiful Thing" by Jonathan Harvey at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 3, and Monday, March 4, on the third floor of the Batavia Government Center, 100 N. Island Ave. in Batavia.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Callbacks are optional and may be held on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. (by invitation only).

Teenage boys Jamie and Ste (short for Steve) are neighbors in a working-class housing project in London. Neither has an ideal home life -- Jamie's mother, Sandra, covers her pain with scathing humor and Ste's father and brother abuse him emotionally and physically. When Jamie's feelings for Ste become romantic the two begin a tentative relationship -- leaving each young boy a little less alone in the world.

The casting will feature three males (ages 17-40) and two women (ages 17-50).

Performance dates for "Beautiful Thing" will be April 26-28, May 3-5, 10 and 11. Rated MA (L,D,V). Contact The Albright Theatre Company at (630) 406-8838, visit, find them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter for more updates and information.
