The Little Theatre of Alexandria stages a charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with … golf. Ken Ludwig’s play will take you on a hilarious romp that pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and romantic missteps, this furious paced comedy recalls the best of the Marx Brothers’ classics.
The show requires three women and three men, all of whom will likely wear plaid polyester. Skills as a golfer not required.
Justin (male, age mid 20s) is offbeat, sweet, anxious, eager, a bundle of nerves. He is Bingham’s new eager-to-please assistant. He once crashed his cart into a water hazard.
Louise (female, age mid 20s) is a waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive, and a bit flighty, but studious. She also can bawl her eyes out at a moment’s notice.
Henry Bingham (male, age mid 40/50s) is the Executive Director of Quail Valley Country Club. He is witty and cynical at times. He gets into a high-stakes bet on a golf tournament and is determined to do what it takes to win. He is also unhappy in his marriage to Muriel. May have a British accent. Auditionees are encouraged to use one if it’s solid, but not required. As a young man, he had a 23 handicap.
Pamela (female, age late 30s) is sporty, beautiful, tanned, sophisticated, a bit loose, and a bit of a drinker. She has an excellent short game.
Dickie Bell (male, age mid 40s) is the Executive Director of Crouching Squirrel, a rival club. He is a bit obnoxious, including his fashion sense, but tries to come off as good-natured. Could quite possibly be “Newman” from ‘Seinfeld’. He takes a few too many mulligans.
Muriel. (female, mid 40s) is wife of Bingham. She is a sturdy woman with the qualities of a drill sergeant. She somehow has a soft spot for Dickie and a mean slice.
Auditions are open. No appointments are required. Auditionees will be given monologues and/or sides when they arrive at auditions. The director will ask auditionees to read their pieces as different characters. To save time, auditionees are strongly encouraged to print out and complete their audition forms before arriving at auditions. To download an audition form, click HERE.
Auditionees will be asked for a complete list of their conflicts starting on callbacks (March 26) thru strike (June 30). Once rehearsals begin, only emergency conflicts will be honored beyond those provided at auditions.
If you have a headshot and acting resume, you may submit them with your audition form, but these materials are not required. Auditionees may be asked to have their pictures taken.
The final rehearsal schedule will be determined by conflicts. Conflicts during the rehearsal period will not disqualify the right actor from consideration but conflicts during the run of the show will. Initially, rehearsals will take place two evenings and one weekend afternoon per week, but additional rehearsals will be added as tech week approaches.
For additional information or to volunteer for this production or to correct that nagging hook, please contact Russell Wyland: RussellWyland@gmail.com
