Cottage Theatre announces auditions for Scapino!
Cottage Grove, OR — Cottage Theatre will hold auditions for Scapino! on Sunday, March 13 and Monday, March 14 at 6:30 pm. This play by Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale is a zany modern day farce inspired by Moliere's 1671 comedy Les Fourberies de Scapin. Scapino! is the third production in Cottage Theatre's 2016 season, and is directed by George Comstock. The play will run for three weekends, June 12 - 26. Roles are available for 10 men and 4 women.
Set in Naples, the play’s lead, Scapino, is the servant who is smarter than his master. A quick-thinker, fast talker, and trickster, he intervenes (despite his master’s plans) to bring two pairs of young lovers together. “The good Lord has blessed me with quite a genius for clever ideas and inspired inventions . . . .” boasts Scapino. This play is a fun-filled, outrageous ride, full of slapstick and fast-paced humor; including tall tales, bad impersonations, ridiculous chase scenes, disgruntled waiters, loveable panhandlers, melodic macaroni, and misbehaving sausages.
These auditions are open to any interested actors and no appointment is necessary. Actors are asked to bring one bad joke to share; no other preparation is necessary. Additional details are available at www.cottagetheatre.org or by calling Cottage Theatre at 541-942-8001.
