ANTICIPATED PERFORMANCE DATES/LOCATION:
October 21-23, pending final approval, at the Wieting Theatre in Worcester, NY, combined with optional Pre-Show Dinner at the Worcester Inn (post-show dinner on Sunday matinee)

SYNOPSIS:
A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why “the grass is never greener.”

DUETS is a hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart. Though written to be produced in its entirety with a cast of up to M4 F4, DUETS may also be performed as four separate one-act plays, each with a cast of M1 F1.

The cast size is flexible.

A very funny comedy by the author of Broadway smash End of the Rainbow and the West End hit Glorious! Four sets of characters, four crucial moments. Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they’ve never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

Duet I: Blind date
• Jonathan
Dresses quite expensively in what he considers to be ‘cool’, but fails! A not entirely accurate self-description in his dating profile but happy to talk about himself when faced with someone he likes. Believes he has an interesting past e.g. a volunteer fireman until he burnt his finger and passable ballroom dancer. Little success with the ladies and his one-time fiancée dumped him for the concierge of their holiday hotel in Tenerife. He gets nervous and jumpy around women and finds them difficult to read. His discomfort leads him to jabber. He has made his umpteenth and possibly final attempt at the dating game. Probably living on inherited money.
• Wendy
Engaged twice, married once. The first engagement “drifted away”. She experienced her husband as a Hoover who sucked away her personality. She has taken a long time to more-or-less recover some of her previous assertiveness, but has some way to go. Amusing, sometimes inadvertently, prone to swearing on occasion and is somewhat bruised by the failed attempts at finding an acceptable new partner. She, also, could do with some support in dressing well.

Playing ages for both characters 50+. Both actors cast will probably be of a similar age.

Duet II: Secretarial Skills
• Barrie
It’s his birthday. Wealthy and dresses well, albeit a little eccentrically at time. He is happily gay, ‘out’ and comfortable in his own skin. Has lots of energy. To strangers he appears straight but, very occasionally, puts on a camp act (complete with stereotypical gestures) when it amuses him to do so. He has a well-developed sense of humor. Barrie can be impulsive – he’s decided he wanted the birthday party three hours before the party is due to start. He has strong, and amusing, views about marriage, the protocol of marriage ceremonies and how marriages should end. Despite his intelligence he naively fails to spot Janet’s ploys.
• Janet
Very capable, bright, cheeky, funny and although Barrie is her boss acts as his equal. She also loves him. Has no trouble in pushing Barrie around. Says/pretends she can’t be bothered to find a man to settle down with. Appears to make light of the major stumbling block between Barrie and her – the fact he appears to be entirely relaxed about his sexual orientation. She is very good at keeping up the banter as she cleverly and subtly appears to reel Barrie in. On the surface Janet seems to cope well with the potential pain of a non-consummated marriage to him. Preferably (but not essentially) at least one actor to be able to perform with a believable American accent.

Playing ages – for Janet late 20s to late-30s and Barrie 40+

Duet III: The Holiday
• Shelley
Shelley is a romantic at heart and is distressed by the prospect of divorce and uses alcohol and a caustic wit to mask/cope with her distress. She is very hurt by Bobby’s infidelity but also explains away her dalliance as being acceptable because it was with a childhood sweetheart. Despite the tensions she is inclined to mother Bobby. Towards the end of the Duet she takes a risk but is she being reckless or courageous?
• Bobby
Is just a little tipsy but irritated by Shelley being drunk, which she is often. He is cuttingly critical of her; a pattern that has existed for some time. Bobby wants her to be happy after the divorce. He shows signs of caring for Shelley from time to time and tries to look after her but doesn’t seem to be able to sustain this tender side of his character for very long. Although seeming to ‘man up’ over the divorce he too may be finding the forthcoming divorce challenging and painful.

Playing ages – Shelley 25+ and Bobby 25+. Both within around 5 years of each other.

Duet IV The Bride-to-be
• Angela
Angela needs help to believe that her imminent, third, marriage is the right thing to do. She slips into her habitual mode of dealing with brother Toby. She wants to be sure that getting married hasn’t become a habit as well as the reassurance that the flowers and other practicalities are under control. Angela gets tense and panicky as several bad omens pop up in her memory, especially when she breaks a mirror. She wonders why she has chosen Toby as a counselor and confidante.
• Toby
Like his sister Angela, Toby comes across as quite posh. He has little emotional intelligence and a compulsion to be honest and ‘rational’. He has a history of inadvertently upsetting Angela and manages to do so at this difficult time too. Since their parents passed away he has done his best to be Angela’s prop but often fails. Despite some of his jibes about her track record in marriage Toby admires Angela and her tenacity; something he lacks. He delivers many funny lines but often has no idea how funny/amusingly crass he is being.

Playing ages – Angela 30 to late-40s but could be older Toby 30-60s. A preference for Toby to be older than Angela but not essential.

• Synopsis:

Almost, Maine is “a play about real people who are really, truly, honestly dealing with the toughest thing there is to deal with in life: love.” –John Cariani, author

Almost, Maine is a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just… “Almost.”

On a cold, clear, moonless night as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

• About the Casting:

Almost, Maine is an ensemble play about 9 different couples in various stages of falling in or out of love. In the original production, two female and two male actors played the nine couples.

The number of actors in the CCP production will not be determined until after auditions. We anticipate that we will cast between 6 and 16 actors and that some actors will play more than one role.

All roles are open. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.

Point of information: Some of the scenes will require the characters to kiss.

Everyone of college age and above is welcomed to audition.

The Director is Nancy Bondurant-Couch, who has directed for the past eight years at Oneonta High School, and currently teaches at SUNY Oneonta and Hartwick College.

• Back Up Plan

In the event that we are unable to cast ALMOST MAINE (due to not enough men), the back-up choice will be LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE by Delia Ephron and Nora Ephron, which is all WOMEN. Based on the book by Ilene Beckerman.

LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE is a scrapbook of side-splitting stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts, and the existential state of having nothing to wear. “Funny, powerful, sweet and saucy! Goes directly to the heart, soul and vanity of every woman, young and old.” – Variety

• REHEARSALS:

Flexible rehearsal dates, times and locations will be arranged after casting.

How often you are called for rehearsal will depend on your role(s).

TECH & DRESS REHEARSALS: Will be scheduled between Nov. 1 and Nov. 13th. Tech Week – you will need to be available evenings from Nov. 9th-12th.

DANGER IN THE DARK Auditions

Catskill Community Players is seeking actors, singers of all ages to play the roles for the original musical, “Danger in the Dark”, written by nationally acclaimed Singer/Songwriter, Skip West. Diana Friedell will direct this premiere performance, which is a collaborative effort by Worcester New York educators, community members, school parents, musician/ composer Skip West, contributors through Kickstarter, video producer/ director Rich West and the Catskill Community Players.

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 20th from 1:00-3:00 pm, and Monday July 21st from 6-8:00 pm, at the Worcester Central School’s new stage in their auditorium. To get to the auditorium- from the main entrance (under the canopy at the back of the building) walk straight down the hallway all the way until it ends, take the stairs (on the right) up one level and the auditorium is adjacent to the water fountain as you round from the stairs into the hallway. We will not start officially rehearsing until August 25th. Performances are October 17, 18, 19, in the WCS Auditorium.

DangerInTheDark

Danger In The Dark is an original stage musical written by Skip West, based on film noir and containing twelve original songs in the styles of 1940’s jazz and swing. Although it begins on a dark and mysterious note it is actually a very upbeat story of mystery, love and redemption with a joyful ending. Full of great songs, swing era style music, dance and witty “noir” dialogue it tells the story of down and out private investigator Trevor Wallace, femme fatales Bette and Goldie, and the mob. In addition to the main characters, Danger In The Dark has several secondary characters such as Froggy the informant, Al the police lieutenant [and Trev’s former partner], the “Unstripper” and Lou the mob boss. Rounding out the cast are the singing and dancing “secretarial pool”, the “cop squad” and “the mob”. Songs include titles such as “Danger In The Dark” and eight others. Danger In The Dark is great entertainment for teen through adult audiences.

Contact Diana Friedell, (dfriedell@stny.rr.com, 607-433-2089) if you would like a copy of the script sent to you, or copy of songs, etc. There will be solos as well as a back-up chorus, and easy dance movement for some numbers, so some singing will be needed for the audition.

HALLELUJAH GIRLS Auditions

Open Auditions are being held on April 22nd & 24th from 7:00-8:30 pm  at the Worcester Inn, 151 Main St. in Worcester, NY for the Catskill Players production of “The Hallelujah Girls,” a comedy with rave reviews by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.   The production will be directed by Gary Koutnik.  The play will be presented on June 6-8 at the Worcester Wieting Theater, in conjunction with a dinner at the Worcester Inn.  There will also be a 2nd matinee performance at Foothills Performing Arts Center on the following Sunday, June 15th.

Hallelujah_Girls_Logo1

“Hallelujah Girls” Plot Description:
“Hilarity abounds when the feisty females of Eden Falls, Georgia decide to shake up their lives.  The action in this rollicking Southern comedy takes place in SPA-DEE-DAH, the abandoned church-turned-day-spa where a group of friends gathers every Friday afternoon.  After the loss of a dear friend, the women realize time is precious, and if they’re going to change their lives and achieve their dreams, they have to get on it now!”

There are obstacles, of course, and a bad guy (actually, a bad girl) – and romance.  There are six women’s roles (five friends and the villianess) and two men’s roles (one fairly substantial role – he gets the girl – and one short one).

Perusal Scripts & more information can be obtained from the director, Gary Koutnik, (607-435-1783).  More information on this 40 year old theater company can be seen at www.catskillplayers.org, or find Catskill Community Players on Facebook!

Auditions for BULL IN A CHINA SHOP

Catskill Community Players announces auditions for its spring play, Bull in a China Shop, by C. B. Gilford, directed by Gary Koutnik.

It’s a comedy about six ladies ‘of a certain age,’ who live together and lust after a young(er) police detective who lives across the street. They plot to draw him in to their clutches by attracting his professional attention; unfortunately, he’s a homicide detective. Believe it or not, hilarity ensues as one lady after another is found stretched out on the sofa, felled by poison, ready – with her still-breathing colleagues – to welcome the dashing policeman to their home. But when a younger female reporter shows up, and forces them to share his attention, the ladies need to step up their game…

There are, obviously, quite a number of wonderful women’s parts (one or two a little shorter than the others…), as well as the detective. There are a number of parts that could be male or female, including the detective’s sarcastic partner. We’re looking forward to having a great time creating a very funny play full of rich characterizations.

Auditions: When:
Sunday, March 18, 2:00PM – 5:00PM
Tuesday, March 20, 7:00PM – 9:00PM
You do not need to come to both auditions
No prepared pieces necessary

Auditions: Where:
South Kortright Central School auditorium (directly across the hall from the main entrance)
From Oneonta: Take State Rt. 23 to Stamford, turn right at the light onto Rt. 10; go about six miles and start looking for the school on your left after passing through Hobart.
From Delhi: Take Rt. 10 north out of town about 14 miles; school is on your right.

Performances:
Friday and Saturday evenings, May 18 & 19; Sunday matinee, May 20 at South Kortright Central School.
We’re working on a plan that would add another weekend at the Worcester Wieting Theater, possibly a dinner theater, as has been done before.

Auditions — Anne of Green Gables

The Catskill Community Players are seeking actors & actresses of all ages for their spring production of “Anne of Green Gables”, an adaptation of the classic L.M Montgomery novel by Alice Chadwicke. There are four potential audition times to choose from: Auditions will be held at the Worcester Inn, Main St. in Worcester on Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday March 20th at 3:00 p.m. Auditions will also be held at 76 MAIN!, in Stamford, NY on Saturday, March 19th at 2:00 pm and Sunday, March 20th at 12 Noon.

The show’s director, David Turan, is looking for 4 males, and 10 females, from age 12 to Adults and Seniors, but Dave notes that many teenage actors are needed. The plot revolves around Green Gables, which is the home of lovable Matthew Cuthbert and his stern sister, Marilla. They agree to adopt a boy to help with the farm work. But they are dismayed when Anne Shirley, a girl in her teens, is sent by the orphanage by mistake! Anne touches Matthew’s heart with her vivid imagination and her charitable viewpoint, but it takes time to reach the tender heart beneath Marilla’s hard exterior. Then there is young Josie Pye, a boy named Moody Spurgeon and Matthew, Anne’s kindred spirit.

The play will be presented on June 10th, 11th, and 12th as a Dinner plus Theatre at the Worcester Inn and the Wieting Theatre in Worcester. A second weekend of performances will take place on June 17th, 18th and 19th at the Carriage House at 76 MAIN!, Stamford, NY.

Auditions for Catskill Players Fall Comedy- 9-19!!

Hi Everyone-

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!

Feel free to call or e-mail if you have questions- 433-2089; dfriedell@stny.rr.com
