SYNOPSIS
Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might try to harm herself, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit. When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.

Female roles are open to all ethnicities. The Costazuela Brothers should be Hispanic.
ROLES (6 F, 2 M)

Olive Madison (Lead): Female, stage age 35-50+
Attractive, divorced, a successful television producer; vibrant, active, quick-witted, big-hearted, with an encyclopedic understanding of sports, but also relentlessly sloppy and careless when it comes to the routine concerns of her personal life. She is very much at home in running shorts and a t-shirt, and still looks smashing in a cocktail dress. The female counterpart to the original play’s Oscar Madison. She is a woman seriously in need of order in her life.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Florence Unger (Lead): Female, stage age 35-50+
Attractive, a homemaker/housewife and very recently separated from her husband, was a bookkeeper before she married, extremely “pulled together” (obsessively so), pathologically organized and neat, even sanitizes the telephone cord. Her personality is the complete antithesis of Olive’s personality. The female counterpart to the original play’s Felix Unger. A woman who badly needs to cut loose, give it up, take a risk.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities.

Mickey (Supporting): Female, stage age 35-50
A New York City policewoman and an organizer and problem solver. She  is down-to-earth, plain-talking, and has a good understanding of people; she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Vera (Supporting): Female, stage age 25-50
A bit literal-minded and a bit slow to get a point that everyone else gets instantly, always seems “a few beats behind the conductor”. She is  very sweet, very nice, somewhat spacey. She’s very funny but doesn’t realize it.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Sylvie (Supporting): Female, stage age 25-50
Highly energized and a wise-cracker. She is desperately trying to stop smoking, and so sucks on lollipops or chews gum; she can get irritated with her friends, but has a good sense of humor, especially about her husband; and, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Renee (Supporting): stage age Female, 25-50
A wisecracker and a bit of a complainer as well. She is Sylvie’s best friend, can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive’s failings as a hostess–and then Flo’s; she is single and dating a doctor.
Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Manolo & Jesus Costazuela (Supporting): Male, stage age 30-42
Brothers, both flight attendants for Iberia Airlines, elegant, well-mannered and extremely polite, meticulously well dressed, good-natured, good laughers, with engaging personalities, both speak with faultless Castilian Spanish accents. Manolo may be a year or two older than Jesus. Jesus may be a little less skilled with English than is his brother. Both are very classy gentlemen. They must have good comic timing, as they get very emotional; they are sensitive and appreciate Florence’s sensitivity.
Ethnicity: Preferably Hispanic

Auditions Announced for SHOUT! The Mod Musical at Cincinnati Music Theatre

CMT_logoCincinnati Music Theatre is proud to announce auditions for SHOUT! THE MOD MUSICAL.

With its irresistible blend of hip-swiveling hits, eye-popping fashions and outrageous dance moves, SHOUT! The Mod Musical takes audiences back to the music, style and freedom of the 1960s. SHOUT! has terrific new arrangements of such classic tunes as “To Sir with Love,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Goldfinger”. The revue follows five groovy gals as they come of age during those glorious days that made England swing. Traveling in time from 1960 to 1970, SHOUT! chronicles the dawning liberation of women, from the rise of Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and Cilla Black as independent women with major careers, to their American counterparts, redefining themselves in the face of changing attitudes about gender.

Auditions are by appointment on Sunday, July 11th from 3-6pm & Monday, July 12th from 7-10pm.
Callbacks will be held on Wednesday, July 14th from 7-9pm.

At Clifton United Methodist Church, 3416 Clifton Ave, Cincinnati OH 45220

Each day’s music and dance auditions will be conducted in groups on the hour. It is important that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the audition time and be prepared to stay for the entire 60 minutes. An accompanist will be provided (no CD’s, tapes or a cappella numbers). The dance audition will be movements reminiscent of the 60s. Walk-ins are welcome, but you may need to wait for the next available slot.

Please bring to the audition:

  • Sheet music in the proper key with cuts marked: 32 bars of two 1960’s style pop songs: one uptempo and one ballad that showcase your vocal range. Songs from the musical can be sung.
  • A copy of your resume and headshot.
  • Your COVID vaccination card (All auditionees are required to show their vaccination card.)

Rehearsals will begin immediately following the auditions and continue until the show opens.
