Auditions Announced for GLADYS NIGHT at Beechmont Players

BPI_logoBeechmont Players and director Steve Phelan will be holding auditions for their fall production, Gladys Nights, by Becky Kimsey.

Directed by: Steve Phelan
Produced by: Mary Jo Bissmeyer

Gladys is having a mid-life crisis. Stuck in the daily grind of a telemarketing job with an irritating boss, Gladys is visited by her childhood imaginary friend, Pepper– a sexy badass international assassin who made a pact with Gladys 30 years ago that she would never let Gladys become boring. Pepper talks her into becoming an assassin too, but during the negotiation process, Gladys inadvertently talks all her clients out of it. The detective trying to catch Gladys in the act falls for her romantically instead, and in the end, Gladys must choose between Pepper (and her new career) and romance.
