Open Auditions at
The Village Players of Hatboro
"The Fox on The Fairway"
No Experience Needed!
Hatboro, Pa June 19, 2012 -- Ever have a secret desire to be in the spotlight? Do you have a yearning to act in a play? Are you just itching to perform in front of a live audience? However, you didn't know how to go about it? Well, now here is your chance. The Village Players of Hatboro will be holding open auditions for the zany comedy, "The Fox On The Fairway" by Ken Ludwig. The playhouse is a local, community, nonprofit organization dedicated to the performing arts for over 60 years. All work is voluntary.
The auditions are open to anyone. No experience is needed. In fact, first timers are encouraged to try out for the show. Many of our productions feature actors in their debut performances. If you're looking for a place to get your foot in the door for some theater experience, this is the place. Mark your calendars, auditions will be held on Sunday July 8th at 7:00 p.m. and Monday July 9th at 7:30 p.m. The following folks are needed:
1 male and 1 female 20 – 30 age range
2 males 40 – 50’s
2 females 40 – 50’s
HENRY BINGHAM (mid 40s): Director of the Quail Valley Country Club. He is witty and cynical at times, much like Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers. He gets into a high-stakes bet on a golf tournament and is determined to do what it takes to win. He is also unhappy in his marriage to Muriel and becomes involved with Pamela.
PAMELA PEABODY (39): A member of the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive and sophisticated, but a bit loose and a bit of a drinker. Throughout the play she aids Bingham in his plans to make sure their club wins.
JUSTIN HICKS (25): Bingham's new eager-to-please assistant who volunteers his services as a golfer to help Quail Valley win the golf tournament. He is romantically involved with Louise and proposes to her early on, but becomes emotionally distraught when things become difficult between them.
LOUISE HEINDBEDDER (23): A waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive, and a bit flighty, but studious. She gets engaged to Justin early on, but a mishap results in her becoming very upset over their future together, making her bawl at a moment's notice.
DICKIE BELL (mid 40s): The director of the rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club, with whom Bingham gets into a high-stakes bet. He is a bit obnoxious, including his fashion sense, but tries to come off as good-natured. He is Pamela's ex and has a thing for Bingham's wife Muriel.
MURIEL BINGHAM (40s): Bingham's wife, who runs an antique shop, which becomes part of the bet between Henry and Dickie. Generally overbearing and stern, she somehow has a soft spot for Dickie.
No monologues. No experience needed. First time actors are warmly welcome. Production runs three weekends in October 2012. Auditions will be a cold read from the script. Rehearsals will begin right away.
If you are looking to get experience in other areas of theater: set construction, lights and sounds, props, make-up, etc., all volunteers are welcome. The best part is that no prior experience is needed! You'll get hands on training.
The Village Players of Hatboro is located in residential Hatboro at 401 Jefferson Avenue. The theater is situated between Jacksonville and Warminster Roads near County Line Road.
