Females sought with a few Loose Screws

Loose Screws, Hawaii's longest-running improvisational theater group, is seeking female improvisers for a September performance at Girlfest.

Auditions will be held at Honolulu Theatre for Youth, 2846 Ualena St., from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Loose Screws has been invited to open for Chicago's all-female improv group Bevy. Currently Loose Screws has five local female improvisers lined up but would like to increase that number.

No improvisation experience is required. Auditioners should be prepared to move and to stay for the entire audition session. There is no pay involved in these positions.

For more information, call R. Kevin Doyle at 523-1004.
