Auditions for Linn-Benton Community College’s fall play “Tango Mike (Thanks Much)” will be held Monday, Oct. 6 at 6 p.m. in the LBCC Russell Trip Performance Center Theater in Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

“Tango Mike” is an original play based on the lives and stories of local Afghanistan and Iraq veterans and their families who are suffering from the effects of PTSD.

The play is part of a Community Collaborative Play-Making process by which topical issues concerning micro-communities are brought to the forefront in the form of a play, through the collaboration and participation of members of these micro-communities.

Set in Albany, Oregon on Memorial Day, the script was created through interviews and story circles with veterans and their families from Albany, Corvallis, Philomath, Lebanon, and Sweet Home, Oregon.

The main character, Mike "Buddy" McIntyre, and his family are celebrating the holiday with family and friends, when unexpectedly Buddy's father, Cooper, shows up. Buddy and his father have been estranged from each other for the past fifteen years. Both men are grappling with their own battles with PTSD, and how it has affected their relationship with each other and their families.
