auditions - Nantwich Players Theatre (3)

The audition will take place on Tuesday April 30 at Nantwich Players Theatre at 7.30pm.

‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ is a comedy play written by Richard Bean and is an adaptation of the 18th-century Italian play ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ by Carlo Goldoni.

Set in 1960s Brighton, this fast-paced, hugely energetic and very witty farce follows the misadventures of Francis Henshall as he juggles his duties for two bosses with disastrous and hilarious consequences.

Audition for the following characters:
Charlie (The Duck) Clench – Brighton-based small-time gangster. Playing age 45+
Dolly – Charlie Clench’s Bookkeeper. Playing age mid 20s to mid 30s
Lloyd Boateng – Old friend cellmate of Charlie’s. Playing age 45+
Harry Dangle – Charlie’s (probably crooked) lawyer. Playing age 40 to 65
Alan Dangle – Harry’s son. Playing age 20 to 35
Pauline Clench – Charlie’s daughter. Playing age 19 to 30
Francis Henshall – The ‘One Man’ of the title. Age range is really flexible
Rachel Crabbe – The first of the two Guvnor. Playing age early 20s to mid 30s
Stanley Stubbers – The second Guvnor. Playing age similar to Rachel but maybe up to 40
Alfie – A waiter. Playing age 87
Ensemble – There is an ensemble of five actors who perform a range of small parts throughout the play.

The Players are also looking to set up a Skiffle Band and the director is keen to hear from any musicians who think that they’d have something to offer – especially guitar, bass and
percussion players.
