Town Players of Newtown will host auditions for Tom, Dick And Harry, by masters of British farce, Ray and Michael Cooney, on Monday and Tuesday, July 15-16. Auditions will run from 7:30 to 9 pm each night.
In this sidesplitting story of three brothers, Tom and his wife are about to adopt a baby. Brothers Dick and Harry are anxious to help make a good impression on the agency representative who has arrived to check on the home and lifestyle of the prospective parents.
Unfortunately, Dick, who has stashed boxes of smuggled brandy and cigarettes in the house, and Harry, who is in possession of a cadaver he is planning to sell illegally to a medical school, fail Tom and his wife miserably. The woman from the adoption agency is aghast – and the illegal Croatian aliens who do not speak English are no help at all!
Gene Golaszewski will direct the production, which calls for six men and three women of various ages.
Those auditioning should read the play in advance (if possible) and be ready to read sides from the script. All roles are available and are open to both professionals and amateurs alike.
Rehearsals will begin the week of July 21. Performances begin September 13, Friday and Saturday evenings, with two Sunday matinees, through October 5, for a total of ten performances.
