   Upcoming Auditions

Davidson Community Players announces open auditions for its summer comedy Unnecessary Farce by Paul Slade Smith. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, May 20th and Wednesday, May 21st at 7:00pm at the Armour Street Theatre located at 307 Armour Street in Davidson.

Rehearsals will begin in early June. No prior acting experience is required and novice actors are encouraged to audition. The production will run July 17th -27th.

 

In this hilarious comedy there are two cops, three crooks and eight doors. What could go wrong? In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two earnest but bumbling undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's being videotaped, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps disrobing.

 

 

Available Roles:

•    Eric Sheridan: Male, 30s-40s. A bookish, even-keeled police officer who's thrown into some difficult situations--while not wearing any pants.
•    Billie Dwyer: Female, 20s/30s. A police officer. Eric's partner. Although she seems to lack every skill needed for police work, she is enthusiastic and eager to succeed.
•    Karen Brown: Female, 30s-40s. An accountant who usually has a very professional demeanor, but seems unable to keep herself in control today.
•    Mayor Meekly: Male, 50s to 70s. A sweet, gentle fellow, who seems very Innocent (with a capital I)
•    Agent Frank: Male, 20s to 50s. Town Hall head of Security. Although he can seem confident and even gruff, in moments of crisis he is easily reduced to a very frightened man
•    Todd: Male, 20s to 50s. Speaks with a pronounced Scottish accent. A professional hit man whose accent gets thicker the angrier he gets, until he's completely indecipherable.
•    Mary Meekly: Female, 50s to 70s. the Mayor's wife. Small statured, she seems very sweet natured, and a good match for her husband the mayor.
