SUMMARY OF SHOW:
Luscious and her little band of Thespians (actors, that is) have purchased three train tickets to the west. The brave little troupe settles in the wild and woolly town of Timberwolf to find their fortunes and a new life. Lucifer P. Bogus, a villain as bad as villains get, is anxious to get one greedy hand on their property to open a den if inequity. His other slimy paw is slowly creeping towards lovely Merry Luscious. Their only hope is handsome actor and playwright Simon Neal. Will Simon be able to save the day before Lucifer has his way?
Ma- A strong willed older woman.
Merry/Joy– Twin sisters played by the same actress. One sweet and innocent the other with a Mae West vibe.
Simon-A handsome simple playwright with a secret.
Louis– A dastardly, villainess, and ruthless businessman.
Sela– A dance hall vamp from head-to-toe.
Be prepared to read from the scrip and to move as melodramas require broad physical comedy. Actors should present a headshot and resume, if available. Actors may be asked to attend a callback audition at the discretion of the director.
