SHOW DESCRIPTION

A Neil Simon classic, which we have included as a celebration as it was performed in our First season 40 years ago!

A play in 3 acts, set in the late 1960s, each involving different characters, which takes place in Suite 719 in New York's Plaza Hotel.

Act 1 - a not so blissfully wedded couple revisit their honeymoon suite, in an attempt to bring love back into their marriage.

Act 2 - involves a meeting between a movie director and his high school flame, who is now a suburban housewife. She decides they are meeting as old friends, he however, has other plans.

Act 3 - Roy and Norma Hubley's daughter, Mimsey, is getting married. In a rush of nervousness, Mimsey has locked herself in the bathroom and refuses to come out. Her parents try frantically to cajole her while the wedding guests are gathered downstairs.

CAST REQUIREMENTS

5 women - age ranges 20-50s
7 men - age ranges 20-50s

Because of the nature of the play, the Director may cast one actor in multiple roles.

WHO

Anyone who ever wanted to act, from one with no experience to the most seasoned actor is welcome on our stage. Part of what makes the Playhouse successful is the diversity of our participants. Beginning with auditions and ending with the final curtain call, staff and support volunteers are there to help.

We practice color blind casting, and depending on the play, we are often flexible regarding age ranges.

If in doubt about auditioning, just come and watch the process to get your feet wet. You may also want to participate in one of our workshops or our Reader’s Theatre where acting skills are developed and enhanced. 

Several weeks prior to the auditions, specific casting information will be posted on the website and FaceBook.
