OCP Announces Auditions for LEADING LADIES!
OCP seeks dynamic personalities to audition for the Owosso Community Players November Comedy “Leading Ladies” Auditions will take place Tuesday, September 11 and Wednesday, September 12 at the Lebowsky Center, 114 E Main St.
Sign-in begins at 6:30 followed by auditions at 7 p.m. Those who audition will be asked to read a selection from the play and will learn a simple dance combination.
The six performances will take place November 2-11. 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. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.
