NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NECCESSARY!
In this hilarious comedy by the author of “Lend Me A Tenor” and “Moon Over Buffalo,” two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. Romantic entanglements abound and hilarity ensues.
Tentative production dates are scheduled for September
MEG – A local girl in her early 30’s, engaged to Duncan. She is vivacious with enormous warmth and a great sense of humor. She also has the fresh, unstudied beauty that most women would kill for.
AUDREY – About 20, she is extremely well-built, sweet and good-natured. She is a roller-skating waitress dating Butch.
FLORENCE – Meg’s very old and extremely crusty aunt. She is a millionaires with terrible eyesight.
LEO – An English actor in his early 40’s who still dreams big of “making it” as an actor.
JACK – Also an English actor in his early 40’s, but ready to “settle down.” He has had enough of the “actor life” and Leo’s plans for him.
DUNCAN – The local minister who is substantially older than his fiancé, Meg. He is a good-hearted man-but rather fussy, set in his ways, a bit scatter-brained and lives in his own world.
DOC – A crusty, likeable curmudgeon. He is a country doctor who takes no guff from anybody.
BUTCH – Doc’s son in his early 20’s. He is a little slow on the uptake, but earnest and sincere, with a good heart. He played football in high school.
