Upcoming Actor Auditions

Leading Ladies

By Ken Ludwig
Directed by Michael Bolinski

Callback auditions Sunday, July 19, 6:00pm at TheatreWorks

TheatreWorks is in the process of casting Ken Kudwig's Leading Ladies and we are still looking for three male roles - Leo, Jack and Butch. One younger (20-30) two older (35-40's) The two older roles are the leading ladies of the title. Strong roles for Tony Curtis type, and a trusty side kick. If you know of anybody that would fit these roles, descriptions may be found below. We are having call back auditions Sunday, July 19 at 6:00pm at the theatre. This is a wildly fun show that will be a blast!

From the author of Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo comes LEADING LADIES, an outrageous new comedy. Jack and Leo are two English Shakespearean actors who are so down on their luck, they are reduced to performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. But when they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces and, in the tradition of any Ken Ludwig farce, absolute hilarity ensues.

Character Breakdown

Leo Clark – British-accent (standard); a nearly over-the-hill actor, holding out hope for a career breakthrough; scheming; passionate; clever; charismatic; impersonates Maxine (Florence's long-lost niece).
