General Audition Information
Moon Over Buffalo Info
The Providence Drama Department is thrilled to announce auditions for the spring show, Moon Over Buffalo. This is the show that brought the legendary Carol Burnett out of retirement. In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
Auditions for this production are on March 19th from 3-6pm. Callbacks, if needed, are March 20 from 3-6pm. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
