MAKING GOD LAUGH
By Sean Grennan
December 4 – 29, 2013

*EACH CHARACTER AGES 30 YEARS DURING THE COURSE OF THIS PLAY.
seeking:

RUTHIE
The matriarch of the family. She starts the play in her late 40s or early 50s. She's bossy, authoritative, means well but tries to steer the world more than is humanly possible.

BILL
Our patriarch, late 40s/early 50s. He loves everyone and is a go-with-the flow sort. Easy going, wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings, desperately in love with his kids and wife.

RICHARD
Eldest son, late 20s as we start. He wants to conquer the world and is always looking for ways to do that. Not a plugger, more of an entrepreneur. A one-time football hero, he misses that kind of spotlight.

MADDIE
Second child. Mid-20s at the top. She's an aspiring actress. A strong willed person who loves her family. She's closest to Thomas and the two of them have a long-standing habit of picking on their big brother as a team. She and her mother have a difficult relationship.

THOMAS
Son two, early 20s, the baby of the family and the "good" son. A nice, even-tempered guy, in the style of his father, who thought his life was on a plan. A devoutly religious man studying for the priesthood.

END OF THE RAINBOW
By Peter Quilter
January 15 – February 9, 2014

seeking:

JUDY GARLAND
Judy is in her late 40s, but is thin and looks older. Larger-than-life personality. On a downward spiral. Must sing well in Garland’s style.

MICKEY DEANS
American, late 20s, early 30s. Tall, physically imposing. Self-made club manager with a dark edge, now Garland’s self-proclaimed manager.

ANTHONY
40–50, English or Scottish. Gay. Soft-spoken, but with a sardonic edge. Also a very skilled pianist. The part requires moderate piano skills, at least sufficient to represent playing. Ideally, good enough to accompany Judy for short passages.

BBC MAN/ HOTEL PORTER/ ASM:
One actor plays all three. BBC Man: English, late 30s. Middle class. Benign, fruity-voiced radio professional. Hotel Porter: Resentful old retainer. ASM: Slightly camp, slightly corpulent, slightly irritable.

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT
Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle, Music by John Du Prez & Eric Idle
March 5 – 30, 2014

KING ARTHUR
(Late 30s-60s.): The King of England who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Roundtable and find the Holy Grail. Great Humor. Good singer.

SIR ROBIN
(30s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. Ironically called 'Sir Robin the Brave,' though he couldn't be more cowardly. Joins the Knights for the singing and dancing. Also plays GUARD 1 and BROTHER MAYNARD
a long-winded monk.

SIR LANCELOT d/b/a LANCE
(30s-40): A Knight of the Roundtable. He is fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate, does discover his 'softer side.' This actor MUST be great with character voices and accents, as he also plays THE FRENCH TAUNTER, an arrogant, condescending, over-the-top Frenchman, the KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd, cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of Knights, and TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being with a Scottish accent.

PATSY
(30s-40s:) King Arthur's horse and servant. Underappreciated but always longing for King Arthur's approval. Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing. Also plays MAYOR, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his hometown, and the drunken, useless GUARD 2.

SIR GALAHAD
(30s): A Knight of the Roundtable. Begins as Dennis, a lower class 'mud gatherer' who becomes Knighted and transforms into the dashing Sir Galahad. Also plays PRINCE HERBERT'S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshireman man at odds with his sensitive son, THE BLACK KNIGHT who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries. Strong bari-tenor singing required.

SIR BEDEVERE
(20s-40s): A Knight of the Roundtable. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS GALAHAD'S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman, and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot's horse. No solo singing.

THE LADY OF THE LAKE
(20s-30s):A Diva. Strong, beautiful, possesses mystical powers. The leading lady of the show. Great singing voice is essential, as she must be able to sing effortlessly in many styles and vocal registers. Especially seeking actresses of all races for this role.

THE FOLLOWING ROLES ARE PLAYED BY THE SAME ACTOR
(20s-30s): Tenor singing required. Very good mover. Good supporting role. HISTORIAN: A tweedy academic; NOT DEAD FRED: A sickly little fellow who, despite others' beliefs, claims he is "not yet dead."; FRENCH GUARD: The condemnatory French sidekick to the French Taunter.; MINSTREL: In Sir Robin's band; -PRINCE HERBERT: The hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing and pines for his love atop a tower.

ENSEMBLE: 6 men and 4-6 women

=====
