The Play That Goes Wrong

April 29 – May 29
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM
Sunday at 4:30 PM

Written By Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields

The time is right to see THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, Broadway’s funniest smash hit! This Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s “A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!” (The Daily Beast) and “TONS OF FUN FOR ALL AGES!” (HuffPost). Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG “A GUT-BUSTING HIT,” and Cindy Adams of the New York Post has just one word for you: “GO!” Get tickets now – it would be WRONG to wait!

The Best Man

March 4- March 20
Thursdays at 7:00 PM
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM
Sunday at 4:00 PM

Written by Gore Vidal

In Gore Vidal’s award-winning play, The Best Man, William Russell, the ex-Secretary of State, is a wit and scholar with high liberal principles, beloved of the eggheads and suspected by practical politicians. Joseph Cantwell is a ruthless and hard-driving young man, a dirty fighter who will let no scruples stand in the way of his ambitions. And Arthur Hockstader is an ex-President, who loves politics for their own sake, admires a rough-and-tumble battler more than a chivalrous one and is determined to have the final say in the selection of his party’s candidate. Cantwell has got hold of papers indicating that his rival once suffered from a mental crackup, which he is all set to use. Then his scrupulous antagonist comes across some incriminating evidence about Cantwell, which he is loath to produce. The scruples don’t appeal to the ex-President Hockstader, who enjoys seeing the boys fight. All of this provides the framework for some vivid and intense scenes in which Mr. Vidal contrasts the minds, emotions and fighting spirits of the two candidates.  Will the “Best Man” become the next President of the United States? The Best Man is as topical today as when it was released in 1960.

The Best Man Audition

The Best Man at Sutter Street Theatre in Folsom, CA

When: Sunday, December 12, 7:00pm

Where:  Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom

Auditions will be cold readings from the script.

Please bring a resume and headshot if you have them.

The show runs February 19 – March 13 on Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm.

Rehearsals to be announced.

Director:  Janelle Kaufman

Plot

At the party’s Presidential convention, an ethical man running for the Presidential nomination runs against an “unscrupulous” man. Populist senator Joseph Cantwell is a “bigot and a charlatan”, while William Russell, who prides himself on his honesty, is the liberal candidate, “likable, forceful and humorous.”  It’s a race to the finish, but an indecisive run to the finish line results in a brokered convention.  Both candidates try to get the endorsement of the popular outgoing president, who enjoys not telling them which one he’ll endorse. The dirt comes out and mud gets thrown, but there is one last hope for someone to come out clean and secure the nomination. Will the “best man” win?

Characters being cast:

Secretary William Russell: Strong youthful man around age 50. Vigorous patrician man from Rhode Island. Has a brilliant mind and wit, and the still-youthful good looks and wandering eye of a Kennedy.

Alice Russell: Mid 30s-50’s. Still beautiful, if a not a bit weary after raising two children and enduring a marriage that grew cold with her husband, Secretary Russell. For the most part, very businesslike and concentrated, but underneath an apparent shyness lies a painful outcry for attention and affection from the man she once loved.

Dick Jensen: Late 40’s. Campaign manager for Secretary Russell. Intense, devoted, apprehensive by nature. More gifted than one might think for politics. Tries — often aggressively — to keep his candidate on the beam.

Senator Joseph Cantwell: Early – late 40s. Very attractive, telegenic self-made man who has risen up from humble beginnings. Seems to have a warm manner, and handles pressure with confidence and ease. A unique combination of the young Nixon’s intensity, JFK’s sexuality, and Romney’s well-polished image of the all American male with some Trump like aggression.

Mabel Cantwell: 30s – mid 40s. The pretty, consciously well-styled, entertaining wife of Senator Cantwell. Loves the political game, and is determined to help her man win, no matter what.

Don Blades: 30s – 40s. Aggressive and ambitious political operator of the new order, where there are no rules, only winners and losers.

Catherine: Age 25 or older. Attractive, dutiful first assistant to Dick Jensen. Has also sought and received the attention of Secretary Russell. Actress also plays an Additional Reporter and Hotel Staff.

Sheldon Marcus: Mid 40s-50’s . Nervous character man-type. Resembles an unmade couch. Suburban guy who has left the comfort of his home and wife to share a shocking revelation about one of the candidates.

Senator Clyde Carlin: 40’s-60’s. Experienced politician

Dr. Artinian: Male, 50s-60s. Highly regarded — and now bewildered — psychiatrist for Secretary Russell. His esteemed reputation and career are placed at risk once his patient’s medical records are stolen by Blades and leveraged to knock Russell out of the race.

Mrs. Sue-Ellen Gamadge: 50s-70’s. Chairman of the Party’s Women’s Division. A resolute figure of a woman, whose entire being is devoted to the political arena, in which she operates as one of its most venerable players.

Ensemble roles: News Commentator / Reporters, Aides, Secret Service, Delegates, Photographers, and hotel staff.

Voice Over Role – Walter Cronkite: An actor needed to provide the voice of Walter Cronkite. This is not a performance role, but a voice over. The voice will be recorded and played in performance. The actor will receive a program credit

Looking for three actors to play:

Margaret “Meg” Murry

Meg is an unusually intelligent thirteen-year-old girl who is a misfit at school. She is warmhearted but impulsive. The main source of her unhappiness, however, comes from the fact that her brilliant scientist father disappeared a number of years ago, and has made no contact with his loving, close-knit family since. Meg’s greatest faults are her anger, impatience, and lack of self-confidence, but she channels and overcomes them, ultimately emerging victorious.

 

Charles Wallace Murry

Meg’s gifted five-year-old brother, Charles Wallace is incredibly intelligent, sensitive, and telepathic. His talents extend from advanced factual and scientific knowledge to an unusual ability to penetrate and understand the minds of others. He is described as “something new”, an evolutionary “next step”.. His assurance of his abilities proves to be his vulnerability Charles is very close to his older sister

 

Calvin O’Keefe

Calvin is a fourteen-year-old boy who’s so smart he’s in eleventh grade He excels academically, socially, and in sports from an early age, but feels disconnected from his peers. Calvin comes from a large family that does not really care about him, but he nonetheless demonstrates a strong capacity for love and affection, and shows a burgeoning romantic interest in Meg. He finds a truer home with the Murrys.

 

The witches, the parents, and other various characters have been precast.
