Recycled Shakespeare Company plans to hold a fundraiser, “A Literary Tea on a Sunday Afternoon,” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 2.

Attendees can partake of hot tea and desserts while listening to winter poetry, passages of prose and music performed by the company at the South Parish Congregational Church, 9 Church St., in Augusta.

Tickets cost $20. Seating is limited, and must be reserved by Friday, Dec. 24.

Text or call Lyn Rowden at 207-314-4730 for tickets or send comments on the RSC Literary Tea Facebook event page. Proceeds will support free community Shakespeare theater.

Those who purchase a ticket and would like to join the readers should call Rowden by Sunday, Dec. 19, with their selection, or a selection can be chosen for them. Pre-approved original poetry is welcome.

RSC is preparing to perform “Macbeth” March 24-27 in Augusta, Dover-Foxcroft and Fairfield. All parts large and small, as well as assistants, are open for auditions. In company tradition, all who want a part get a part.

Those age 12 and older are welcome to audition. Those interested in main parts can come prepared with a monologue if they choose, and group readings will also be requested.

Auditions will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 28, at the South Parish Congregational Church, 9 Church St., in Augusta, and on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at Fairfield House of Pizza, home of Pizza and Play, 207 Main St., in Fairfield.
