Are you an actor or someone who would like to give it a try? Come to our audition nights and you could star in our next production! Many of our actors came straight out of the audience and decided to see what it was like on this side of the lights.
Auditions take place on the Monday and Tuesday 9 weeks before the start of the run. Auditions start at 7pm at 1921 Avenue G, Rosenberg. Enter through the Cast Theatrical Company door and follow the stairs to the second floor.
All auditions are a cold reading from the script – no need to memorize monologues.
If you have any questions, or would like to speak to one of our directors, please give us a call at: (832) 889 – 3808.
We have a number of plays coming up, so see below for when our auditions are going on! We are always on the look out for new actors, directors, lighting, set designers, and anyone who wants to get involved in our community theater!
November 13-14, 7pm
Directed By: Darin Meilke
Performance Dates: Fridays & Saturdays, January 26 – February 17, 2018 with Sunday Matinees, January 28 & February 11
- Charlie Baker – a meek proofreader for a science fiction magazine; he has a merrily adulterous wife whom he loves. He is witty and funny while also very smart. He is extremely shy but living at the lodge and being in contact with such wonderful people, Charlie soon comes out of his shell and eventually finds himself the center of attention as the hero.
- S/Sgt. “Froggy” LeSueur – a cheerful British Army man who teaches the use of explosives.
- Betty Meeks – an elderly widow who owns a resort lodge and mothers her guests. She has a fun, sarcastic nature, but she is very nurturing to all who come in contact with her. She is a hard worker, and her weak body carries all of the work she has done throughout the years.
- Rev. David Marshall Lee – engaged to Catherine and, “it would appear, a good young man to have on our side”. He comes in and out of the play and always seems like a charmer when the ladies are around. When it is just him alone with Charlie however, he begins to show his true colors.
- Catherine Simms – a pretty heiress going through an emotional time. She is kind and caring towards Ellard and quickly shows Charlie the same attention.
- Ellard Simms – Catherine’s dim-witted brother, heir to half the family money if Catherine decides he is “smart enough to handle it”. He is a kind, gentle hearted man but no one really gives him the time of day until Charlie comes into the picture. Charlie not only helps Ellard become more in tune with really how bright he is, but is also taught by Ellard what it means to be patient and lighthearted.
- Owen Musser – a superstitious, dangerous racist man that lives in town.
Please bring a headshot and resume/biography to auditions, if you have them.
The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by “Froggy” LeSueur, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time “Froggy” has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So “Froggy” before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should – the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the ministers pretty fiancée is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said. That he does fuels the non-stop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.
