Auditions for ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
WHAT: One Man, Two Guvnors
Set in swingin’ 1963 London, One Man, Two Guvnors is a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners. The disarming and doltish Francis Henshall finds himself trapped into working for two bosses—who are connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Easy, right? Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue—all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. It’s more than a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni’s classic knee-slapper, The Servant of Two Masters - it’s a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues.
WHO: Directed by Terry Martin
WHEN: Sunday, February 21 (5pm-10pm)
WHERE: Addison Theatre Centre Boardroom
ROLES: Seeking 14-16 versatile actors for the following roles:
Francis Henshall - Male, twenties-forties. An Essex boy driven by his stomach. A bit rough around the edges, but very charming. Should be on the heavy-side. Incredible comic presence. Should be able to do complex physical routines. A teddy-bear quality helps, along with the ability to improvise and turn on a sixpence. Sings.
Stanley Stubbers - Male, twenties-thirties. A posh public-school boy in love with Rachel. Has a very dirty sense of humor, but is still charming and generally decent. Good-looking, fit, earnest, utterly confident and steeped in the arrogance of the upper classes. Sings.
Rachel Crabbe - Female, twenties-thirties. A London girl from a criminal family. Sharp and quick-witted, driven by her real love for Stanley. Disguised as her dead brother Roscoe. As Roscoe, she is channeling Pinkie in “Brighton Rock”, the psychotic 1960s gangster, homosexual, vicious. As Rachel, she is strong-witted, brave and good. Cockney accent (not too strong). Must sing.
Harry Dangle - Male, fifties-sixties. The stereotypical corrupt lawyer. Loquacious, bombastic and blustery. Extravagant, red-faced, pompous. Posh RP accent, which occasionally dips into Cockney. Must sing. Ukulele playing a plus.
Charlie "The Duck" Clench - Male, fifties. Pauline’s father. Small-time gangster. Streetwise, but not intelligent. Weasely, shifty, spiv-like. Has a great, prosaic turn of phrase. The stereotypical small-time London geezer. Cockney accent, doesn’t sing.
Lloyd Boateng - Male, forties-sixties. Wise and sanguine owner of a pub. Old friend of both Charlie and Rachel. Jamaican with a strong Caribbean accent. Gregarious, helpful. Doesn’t sing.
Pauline Clench - Female, twenties. Sweet, pretty Cockney girl who is not very bright. In love with Alan. Despite being dumb and occasionally shrill, she should be – somehow – appealing. Must sing.
Alan Dangle - Male, twenties. Alan is an aspiring actor with little common sense. Hot-headed and passionate, full of bluster but ineffective. Attractive but in a characterful way. Maybe tall and lanky, a bit goofy. From Brighton, so not posh RP; middle-class London accent, but not Cockney like the Clenches.
Dolly - Female, thirties. Charlie’s accountant. Smart and sassy, very sexy and very funny – but not dumb; in fact, she’s probably the smartest person in the play. Gorgeous, flirtatious, curvaceous, a real firecracker. She’s Northern – so Lancashire or Yorkshire accent, Liverpool would work, too. Must sing.
Ensemble - A variety of roles including waiters, porters, maids, etc.
OTHER: Actors should come prepared with one contemporary comedic monologue,
