Pier One Theatre holds auditions for the play “Up” from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday and 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Mariner Theatre. Written by Bridget Carpenter, the play is loosely based on the life of Larry Walters, the “Lawnchair Guy,” who tied 42 helium-filled weather balloons to his lawn chair in San Pedro, Calif., in July, 1982 and soared to 15,000 feet before popping a few balloons with his BB gun.
Directed by Lance Petersen, “Up” has roles for eight people: three to four women and three to four men, ages 30 and older, and three roles for boys or girls ages 15 to 16 year old. The performances start in June. For more information, contact Petersen at 235-7333.
