PG Players Auditions

PG Players to hold auditions for “Lucky Stiff”


Pleasant Grove Players will be holding auditions for their Fall production of the hilarious musical comedy "Lucky Stiff" on Tuesday, August 21st, and Wednesday, August 22nd, at from 7:00pm –9:00pm.  Auditions will be held at the Keith Christeson Theater on the first floor of the PG Library (30 E. Center).  Please prepare 16 bars of an upbeat Broadway song.  An accompanist will be provided, or you may bring a minus track. (Nothing that requires wi-fi!)  No appointment is needed.  This production will be directed by Howard and Kathryn Little.


Tony Award-winning writing team, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's, first produced show, Lucky Stiff, premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons.  That incarnation's talented cast included Stephen Stout, Stuart Zagnit, Mary Testa and Julie White.  A winner of the Richard Rodgers Award and Washington's Helen Hayes Award for Best Musical, Lucky Stiff is now performed frequently across the country.

Based on the novel, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair.  The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo.  Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000.  If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn... or else his uncle's gun-toting ex!


Needed are 5 adult men and 4 adult women.


Performance dates are October 19 – November 5 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings. There will also be a Saturday matinee on November 3.
