Tricks, an independent film production written and directed by DeAara Lewis and focusing on the story of five prostitutes, will have auditions on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30 at Southwest Tennesee College Community Theatre, on Manassas between Linden and Union Avenue. The new audition time is from 12 PM (noon) to 4 PM.

Here is a brief description of Tricks:

Tricks is an urban tale of five prostitutes, their enterprising madam and the personal struggles of each to not only survive, but thrive in a business that is deemed immoral and taboo.

Character Breakdown:

1. Natalie – late twenties, early thirties. An attractive, but vindictive woman. She knows how to pull a man. Other “girls” are intimidated by her and she uses this to her advantage.

2. Rita – late twenties, early thirties. An attractive and shapley woman, but is somewhat rundown. She’s naïve when it comes to men and as a result, constantly falls in and out love with her clients.

3. Devin (Michelle’s boyfriend) – tall man in his late twenties, early thirties; very attractive; charming. He is educated and very forward, but also has a soft side.
