AUDITIONS: Moon Over Buffalo

The Phoenicia Playhouse is holding auditions for Ken Ludwig's Moon Over Buffalo.

Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-paced, door-slamming farce about the backstage shenanigans of a once-venerable traveling theatre family in the 1950s. The production opens on May 4th and runs for 3 weekends (Friday and Saturday evenings, Sunday matinee) closing on May 20th.

The show will be directed by the theatre's Artistic Director, Michael Koegel.

Auditions will be held on Feb 16th and 17th at the Phoenicia Playhouse at 6pm both nights.

We are casting the following roles:

Paul: The theatre company's Handsome actor/company manager who tries to keep the chaos under control but eventually succumbs. Ultimately, he gets the girl. 25-35

Howard: Naive local weatherman and a bit of a geek, who is mistaken for Frank Capra and General George Patton. Winds up bound and gagged in a closet. 25-35

Richard: Witty and urbane Hollywood talent agent, quick with the one-liners. 50s

Eileen: The ingenue who's not as innocent as she looks: she's just found out she's pregnant. Prone to hysterics. 20-35

Ethel: The "grandmother" of the company. Sarcastic, jaded, and curmudgeonly. Without her hearing aids (which is often the case) she is deaf as a stone. 65-80

Be prepared to read scenes from the play. Scripts will be available at the theatre. Please arrive on time.
