Can two strangers find love at IKEA?  Possibly—when a couple of playful ghosts are involved!  Winnifred and Lex are both “lonely hearts,” but neither of them is convinced that true love can be found while shopping; however, Players Workshop invites you to be a part of finding out as they hold open auditions for the Gary Ray Stapp comedy/drama Lost (and Found) in IKEA on Sun., Oct. 9, and Mon., Oct. 10, at 7:00 p.m. at the Workshop, 1431 Grove St., Burlington. 

            Parts are available for 5 men and 5 women, ages 30’s and up.  The characters include a husband and wife, a homeless man, an IKEA customer, a single woman, her brother (who is dead), a widower, the widower’s wife (who is also dead), the IKEA security guard, and a crazy lady. No experience or special requirements are needed to audition—all materials will be provided.  

            For more information on auditions, contact director Libba Flores at 319-750-3533; audition information will also be available on the Players Workshop Facebook page and the PW website
