I am pleased to announce I will be directing the fall show for Catskill Community Players!!
Passengers by Sam Bobrick, writer from “Get Smart”, Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and many other plays after that.
It is a fabulous well-reviewed comedy of 8 one-act kinds of scenes, so it is very flexible with the casting and rehearsing since you can either double cast a couple of them, or not. It will be at the Wieting Theatre
in Worcester again, a combination dinner theatre with the Worcester Inn
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard, while just reading the script, so it should be lots of fun.
We’ll probably rehearse at the Wieting in Worcester or other places, for our convenience, since each play is a small cast. Here is the scoop. . .
Hope to see you there!
Diana Friedell, director, is seeking at least 8 actors, of all ages and types (the youngest needed should be able to play a young bride and groom age) for this hilarious comedy.
AUDITION DATES: Sunday, September 19th from 2-5 pm; Monday, September 19th at 7 pm; at the Wieting Theater on Main street in Worcester.
SHOW DATES: Dinner theater in cooperation with the Worcester Inn!! November 12, 13, 14th, dinner at 6:00; show at 8:00
CASTING: It is very flexible on casting (both number of cast members and age).
Actors play seventeen characters in eight short scenes set in a small mid-western bus station. The scenes, which segue fluidly from one to another without stopping, vary from comedic to poignant. The scenes include: one of life’s eternal losers plans to turn his life around by successfully robbing the bus, with his wife’s encouragement; a successful businessman meets an old high school classmate, now a bag lady, and have a rousing time together recalling the good old days; an innocent bystander, suffers outrageous consequences when he refuses to get involved in a bogus incident set up to reprimand people who refuse to get involved; a recent widow, whose husband was accidentally killed while attending a circus out of town, awaits his ashes while she returns the body of the clown that was sent to her by mistake; the bus driver asks the woman behind the ticket counter to join him in his retirement — does she turn him down?
