Auditions set for Play On!

Posted Jun 24th, 2010 by Kara Ayers  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Toledo.com


Auditions will be held at The Village Players Theatre, 2740 Upton Avenue at 7:00 pm on Monday, July 5th and Tuesday, July 6th with callbacks if needed on Thursday, July 8th for the comedy Play On!

The hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the authoress decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp.

Play On is written by Rick Abbott and is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. It will be directed by Wes Skinner and will run September 10-25, 2010.

Needed are: Aggie Manville (a stage manager and prompter), Geraldine “Gerry” Dunbar (a community theatre director), Henry Benish (“Lord Dudley” a character actor), Polly Benish (“Lady Margaret” a character actress), Marla “Smitty” Smith (“Doris the maid” a supporting player), Saul Watson (“Doctor Rex Forbes” a villain), Billy Carewe (“Stephen Sellers” a juvenile), Violet Imbry (“Diana Lassiter” an ingenue), Louise Peary (a sound, light and scenic technician), Phyllis Montague (a novice playwright in the community).

If you are not interested in acting but would like to help out with the show please contact Andrew Black at 419-340-5402
