Apple Hill Playhouse is gearing up for another summer season of music, drama and comedy.

Auditions for the upcoming shows will be held March 31 at the 275 Manor Road, Delmont, theater.

Planned this year:

"Social Security" (May 17-26) is a comedy centering on a married couple of art dealers, and how their domestic tranquility is shattered by arriving family members.

"Steel Magnolias" (June 7-16) focuses on a group of strong, Southern women who share their lives in a small town beauty shop.

"Altar Boyz" (July 12-21) is a musical comedy following a fictional Christian boy band on the last night of a national tour, as they question their faith and loyalty.

"Mama Won't Fly" (Aug. 8-17) is a comedy about a cross-country road trip for family members en route to a wedding, necessitated because the matriarch won't, well, fly.

In "Kitchen Witches" (Aug. 30-Sept. 8), two cooking show hostesses who fought over, with one marrying, the same man, find their bickering on a new show together leads to a ratings bonanza.

"A Comedy of Tenors" (Sept. 20-29) is set in 1930s Paris, where the concert of the century is to take place in a soccer stadium. Throw in one hotel suite, four tenors, two wives and three girlfriends and madcap comedy ensues.
