Derby time usually means break time for most of the Louisville theatre scene, but this weekend there are several theatres holding shows. Among these is a futuristic adventure from Alley Theater, a classic musical from Derby Dinner, and the roasting of an icon at The Bard's Town.

For those in Oldham County or the extreme east end of Louisville, there's a free theatre + music event at Little Colonel Playhouse. Featuring 10 minute plays, live music, and more, it's a place to go to get away from the Oaks/Derby talk for a night.

Finally, check out the auditions below, including a new one for Shelby County Comm. Theatre and a summer show for Drama Studio. Enjoy!
