A Comedy by:  Nathan Sanders

Please prepare:  Find a story you would like to tell the director, it can be a story from childhood or something passed down through your family.  No longer than one minute, we will also be reading from the script. 

Director:  Teresa Vignau

In this Southern Gothic comedy of romance, murder and alien abduction, the Nettle sisters are determined to escape spinsterhood—Willie Mae by going to Salt Lake and finding a good Mormon husband and Faye by hopping on the spaceship when the “space people” return for another visit. We meet Faye and Willie Mae as they return home to their ramshackle swamp dwelling in Sugar Bean, Florida, after a disastrous daytrip to Disney World, where Willie lost her prized Eva Gabor wig on Space Mountain. Having witnessed the landing of an alien space craft some 25 years ago in her daddy’s sugarcane field, Faye prepares for the return of her celestial visitors on this night, the very anniversary of that fateful day. A disturbance in the sugarcane field lures the sisters outside to investigate, and Faye recalls how their infamous daddy claimed to have witnessed dead folk walking through Sugar Bean on a similar night many years before. A strange bird-like woman suddenly appears out of the darkness of Buster Swamp, setting in motion a chain of extraordinary events. Lies begin to unravel and the truth is revealed as the Sugar Bean Sisters hatch a diabolical plot to ensure the space people’s return.

Characters:

Faye Clementine Nettles (40’s-60’s) The spinster daughter of the infamous Papa Fate Nettles, Sugar Bean’s long-dead mass murderer.  Having witnessed the landing of an alien spacecraft some twenty years prior in her daddy’s sugarcane field, Gaye awaits the return of her celestial visitors on this night, the very anniversary of that fateful day.  With the surety of a Southern Cassandra, Fay hatches a diabolical plot to ensure the “space people’s” return and her escape from Sugar Bean forever.  Earthy, inappropriate and unconventional, Faye is the “enfant terrible” of Sugar Bean.

Willie Mae Nettles (40’s-60’s) Faye’s the exacting older sister.  A deeply devout, bald-headed Mormon woman who suffers “spells” and fears the creature that lurks beneath the bed.  Willie longs to leave for Salt Lake City, Utah, in the hopes of finding a “good Mormon” husband.  Severe, humorless and dictatorial, Willie is the quintessential Southern spinster.

Miss Videllia Sparks (40’s-50’s) A strange, meretricious woman from New Orleans who arrives at the Nettles home in the middle of Buster Swamp on the night of the expected “landing”.  Half bird-woman, half sideshow carnival performer, Miss Sparks has a peculiar habit of making up her own works.  Freakish, eccentric and bizarre, Videllia Sparks is the mysterious stranger who comes to town.

The Bishop Crumley (25-40’s) A Mormon bishop from Salt Lake City, Utah, now living in Sugar Bean, Florida.  The Bishop Crumley is gentle, strikingly handsome man and the object of Willie Mae’s unrequited love and affection.

The Reptile Woman (30’s-70’s) Looking for African-American, Native American, Caribbean, Cajun.  The snake and “gator” lady of Sugar Bean, Florida. The Reptile Woman, an eccentric swamp mystic, is summoned to the Nettles home on the night of the “landing”.

Upcoming Auditions – Reasons to be Pretty

ReasonsPretty_Poster

Audition Notice:

Playhouse Black Box Series Production

REASONS TO BE PRETTY by Neil Labute

Directed by Daniel Eilola

When: August 15th and 16th at 7pm

Callbacks: August 17th at 7pm

Where: Stonzek Studio Theater at The Lake Worth Playhouse

Production Dates: October 20th – 30th, 2016 (Rehearsals begin in early September)

What to prepare: One minute contemporary monologue

REASONS TO BE PRETTY centers on four young working class friends and lovers who become increasingly dissatisfied with their dead-end lives and each other. A love story about the impossibility of love, REASONS TO BE PRETTY focuses on the modern-day obsession with physical appearance and with the pressures of what it means to be ‘pretty’, and observes how these four friends manage the infidelity, betrayal and deceit that creeps into their lives.

Characters:

Greg (25 – 35):  A nice guy with a tendency to say the wrong thing without being aware of it. He is well read (enjoys classic American literature in an effort to better himself) but remains in his dead end job. Does his best to avoid conflict whenever possible. Works in a warehouse with Kent and Carly.

 

Steph (25 – 35) : Greg’s girlfriend. Open and vunerable Steph has a hair-trigger temper and is at times argumentative, particularly when she feels emotionally wounded. One of Greg’s unsuspecting remarks causes her to end their relationship. She is close friends with Carly, but doesn’t care for Kent.

 

Kent (25 – 35): A quintessential jerk. Stereotypical chauvinistic jock who values women only by their appearance. Winning in sports and with beautiful women are his sole focus in life. Loves having the ‘trophy wife’ but is not faithful and always on the prowl to prove his manhood. Married to Carly.

 

Carly (25- 35 ): She knows she’s attractive and not above using it to her advantage; however, also recognizes the burden of being ‘pretty.’ Vulnerable, but can be manipulative if necessary. Only has her job because of how she looks. Works at the same warehouse as Kent and Greg.

 

 *Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.

Upcoming Auditions – Death By Design

DBD_Poster

DEATH BY DESIGN

BY: Rob Urbinati

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingénue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.

 

DIRECTOR: Suzanne Dunn
Suzanne holds a BFA from Florida Atlantic University where she studied with Zoe Caldwell and Hume Cronyn, and attended Selwyn College, University of Cambridge, obtaining certificates in British Society and 20th Century Literature and Poetry. Suzanne made her professional acting debut in Eleemosynary at the Theatre Club of the Palm Beaches for which she was nominated for a Carbonell Award.

Upcoming Auditions – Urinetown

URINETOWN

URINETOWN
Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollman
Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

A side-splitting send-up of greed, revolution (and musicals!) in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.  Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!

ReasonsPretty_Header

REASONS TO BE PRETTY by Neil LaBute
October 20th – 30th 2016
A love story about the impossibility of love, REASONS TO BE PRETTY introduces us to Greg, who really, truly adores his girlfriend, Steph. Unfortunately, he also thinks she has a few physical imperfections, and when he casually mentions them, all hell breaks loose. A hopelessly romantic drama about the hopelessness of romance.

“Mr. LaBute is writing some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere these days.” —NY Times.

“It is tight, tense and emotionally true, and it portrays characters who actually seem part of the world that the rest of us live in.” —Time.

 

NewCountry_Header

NEW COUNTRY by Mark Roberts (2015 New York Times Critics Pick)
February 2nd – 12th 2017
Country music star Justin Spears is young, handsome, hugely famous, hugely wealthy, and has an ego at the top of the charts. On the eve of Justin’s wedding day, his ruthless managers, Paul and Chuck, try in vain to keep an unruly entourage under control. Enter Ollie, the star-struck hotel bellboy with a cockeyed view of fame; Sharon, Justin’s vigilante, scorned ex-girlfriend; and dirty old pig-farming Uncle Jim who arrives with inflatable lady, Wanda June Whitmore. So how does this raucous rodeo go so wrong…so fast? Welcome to the NEW COUNTRY, where the hits just keep on comin’.

“plenty of raunch, with just enough heart” – New York Times

“hilarious, poignant, and at times heart-wrenching comedic drama.” —StageandCinema.com.

 

GoodPeople_Header

GOOD PEOPLE by David Lindsay-Abaire
April 27th– May 7th 2017
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

“Wonderful…this isn’t a manipulative tear-jerker or a simplistic diatribe. GOOD PEOPLE is poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck.” —NY Post.

“…shot through with aching authenticity, GOOD PEOPLE is that rare play that is both timeless and completely keyed into a specific moment in American life”  —Variety.

But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before its too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.
