Farce by Michael Frayn


Enjoy both onstage and backstage views of a manic menagerie! A cast of itinerant actors is rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play that is spectacularly funny!

Directed by Jason Smith

Auditions: March 6-7 at 7pm

Roles for 4 women, 5 Men

LLOYD DALLAS – The director of Nothing On, the play within the play. Lloyd is passionate, suave, and harried. He is temperamental as he watches his production go from bad to worse to disaster. He is secretly dating both Brooke and Poppy.
DOTTY OTLEY – A middle-aged prima donna. Her money is funding the production, however she has trouble remembering things. Dotty is having an affair with the much younger Garry. She plays the part of Mrs. Clackett, a cockney housekeeper, hospitable, though slow.

POPPY NORTON-TAYLOR – The assistant stage manager; overworked and often on the verge of tears. She works frantically to keep the show from completely falling apart. Having an affair with Lloyd.

BELINDA BLAIR – An experienced actress who is positive, reliable, and charming. She is a goodhearted busybody and attempts to keep the show going as it unravels. She plays the part of Flavia.
TIM ALLGOOD – The Company’s long-suffering stage manager who is completely exhausted and sleep-deprived. He’s responsible for an inhuman number of tasks and forced to understudy everybody.
