Penfield Players and director Scott Fitzgerald announces auditions for our Winter Readers' Theatre production of The Explorers Club. Auditions are scheduled for January 3 and 4, 2017 from 7:00-9:00pm both nights at the Penfield Recreation Center.
Here is a synopsis for The Explorers Club:
In Victorian London, the Explorers Club is a renowned group of adventurers and scientists who study anything and everything with nature, animals and the world itself. When one of their own proclaims his interest in bringing in a woman, the rest of the club is up in arms over this potential change of tradition. Yet Phyllida Spotte-Hume is no slouch - she is a great explorer who has brought along a native from a lost city she recently discovered. Add a cultural misunderstanding with the native, animals on the loose, angry Irishmen and warrior monks, and the need for a better bartender and you have an anything goes farce about the exploration of the roughest nature of all: human nature.
The Penfield Players present the reading of The Explorers Club by Tony-nominated writer Nell Benjamin (co-book writer of the musical adaptation of Legally Blonde). Scott Fitzgerald directs, with Justin Rielly producing.
Cast: 9 men, 2 women (doubling) Total Cast: 11
