Auditions Announced for WEEKEND COMEDY at Beechmont Players

BPI_logoAuditions for Beechmont Players’ WEEKEND COMEDY

A comedy by Jeanne and Sam Bobrick​
Directed by Steve Phelan

Two couples, two generations, one weekend, one cabin…

A generational collision between two couples who’ve been double-booked into a weekend vacation rental provides laughter and a joyous look at marriage and happiness.


At Cherry Grove United Methodist Church
1428 Eight Mile Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45255

Four Performances:  December 5-7, 2019 at the Anderson Center Theater

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.


  • Frank and Peggy, a married couple in their early 50’s.
    • Frank is stodgy and complacent—happy with his life and his marriage, and not understanding why his wife has dragged them off to a cabin in the woods when they have a perfectly good house in the suburbs.
    • Peggy is frustrated and sarcastic.  Not…unhappy with her marriage, but wishing Frank could be more spontaneous and romantic.  Which is why they’re at a cabin in the woods.
  • Jill and Tony, an unmarried couple who’ve been living together for three years.
    • Tony is a handsome young man in his late 20’s.  Affluent, and enjoying the good life.  He’s single and sees no reason not to be.
    • Jill is an attractive young woman in her early 20’s.  She loves Tony, and is reconciled to just living together, since they are having so much fun.
