After financial issues swarmed Theatre West Virginia in the past, things are starting to look up.

On Thursday, they were on the lookout for the next round of actors for its upcoming season.

Performers auditioned Thursday at Tamarack for "Hatfields and McCoys".

The performance will be presented 17 nights in July and August.

After losing almost all funding from the state, a very persistent theatre still stands ready to give West Virginians live productions. Interim General manager for Theatre West Virginia, Scott Hill told 59News they're still on a rocky road. He said they lost their building completely as of last week, but they do have temporary storage for the time being. Theatre West Virginia is still looking for a permanent location.

Hatfields and McCoys will be performed:
July 11,12,13,17,18,19,20,23,24,25,26,27,30 and 31.
As well as August 1 and 2.

Theatre West Virginia will host auditions Saturday for "National Anthem" singers for the summer productions.
