We are going to be holding open auditions for our November production on Monday 17th and Wednesday 19th June, 8pm at The Guildonian Players. 

This is a wonderfully funny and interesting play with a cast of 8 (3m and 5f). The play is set in December 1936 in Connecticut.

Madge Geisel (f) – 30’s-40’s – American accent – married to Felix and fellow actor. Flamboyant, wry and smart-mouthed. 

Simon Bright (m) – 25 – American accent – Fellow actor. Sweet and enthusiastic. Good natured and affectionate.
