Murphy's law will be brought to the stage this November, proving that if something can go wrong, it will go wrong.

Prairie Players are returning to the William Glesby Centre to put on, "The Play That Goes Wrong." President Rosa Rawlings says you can expect to see everything that you'd never want to have happen onstage, including forgotten lines, broken props, and even chatter backstage.

"Avery Griffith (is directing). He was in the last play. If you saw Jack of Diamonds, he played Jack," explains Rawlings. "He's been wanting to do this play for a long time. It's his first time directing, so it's exciting for him and the group."

Auditions will take place on September 7 and 8 at 7 p.m. She says that the show will run at the William Glesby Centre from November 22nd to 25th. Rawlings stresses that, even if you don't want to be onstage, there's always a spot open at Prairie Players.

"There's always lots of people needed for behind the scenes, set building, different things like that," says Rawlings. "If you're interested in doing that, come to auditions and tell Griffith that you'd rather work behind the scenes, and you can sit in on auditions."

Rawlings says they're excited to perform the production in the renovated William Glesby Centre, as it's currently being remodelled.
