About the Show

The best laid plans go awry when the cast and crew of a Broadway-bound play resort to manipulation, diva-like behaviour, and chaotic abandon to get what they want. Fledgling playwright Jerry Przpezniak and his fiancee are a couple of Buffalo greenhorns suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of the New York theatre scene when Jerry's play is optioned  for the big money, ego-driven world of Broadway. It's a young playwright's dream, but the crazy characters and dilemmas they encounter are the things that nightmares are made of.

Character Descriptions

We are looking for a range of performers for this show. Open roles are as follows:

Jerry Przpezniak (30s): Amateur playwright from small town America. Gets his big break into professional theatre when his play is optioned by a big-time producer on Broadway.

Arlene Wyniarski (late 20s): Jerry's fiancee. She is completely awestruck by the Big Apple and has a huge crush on Curt Logan, the star of Jerry's play.

Mike Policek (50s): Interstate theatre owner whose nice-guy demeanour masks an astute theatrical intelligence.

Curt Logan (60s): Washed up ex-TV star who is trying to make it back into the big time.

Beatrice Pomeroy (60s): Curt's TV co-star who has been 'rescued' from her current nightclub act to be in Jerry's play. Singing ability an advantage.

Lucinda Shaw (30s, English accent required): Meticulous and precise, 'best stage manager in New York'. Trying desperately to balance her professional and personal life.

Rehearsals will be held on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
