Auditions Announced for ROOM FOR SECONDS at Village Players

VP_new logoVillage Players of Fort Thomas announce auditions for ROOM FOR SECONDS by A.K. Forbes.

  • Sunday, Oct. 27, 2 pm
  • Monday, Oct. 28, 7 pm

Street level at 8 N. Ft. Thomas Ave., Fort Thomas, KY 41075

Cast requirements (stage ages may be adjusted somewhat based on casting):

  • TRUDY, to play 50s-60s, Zen’s mother. Eccentric. Easily bored.
  • ZEN, to play 36, Trudy’s son. Experiencing the early stages of a mid-life crisis.
  • MAGGIE, to play 24½ , Zen’s girlfriend. A surprisingly low-energy dance teacher. Probably sounds Kardashian.
  • MEGAN, to play late 30s, Zen’s ex-girlfriend and Trudy’s co-conspirator. Earnest, but a little off.
  • SAM, to play 65, Trudy’s ex-husband; Zen’s father. Recovering from a mid-life crisis.
  • Voice of ALPHONSE, M, any age, to sound like a mid 40s hair stylist with an accent. The accent is probably fake. (This role can be read from the script off stage.)

Resumes and head shots encouraged, but not required. Cold readings from the script.

Synopsis: When Zen brings his new, young girlfriend Maggie home to meet Trudy, his mother, Trudy enlists his ex-girlfriend, Megan, to help in the kitchen. Their plan to “see Maggie blotchy” by serving a sauce made of strawberries, to which she is allergic, backfires in a big way. Maggie is rushed to the hospital, suffering from anaphylactic shock, leaving Trudy and Megan to worry about legal culpability. Hoping that Sam, her tax attorney ex-husband, can be of some assistance (because maybe he knows a “real lawyer”), Trudy reaches out, only to have him show up at her house, luggage in tow. At the same time, Zen threatens to alert the police unless Trudy and Megan help him repair his relationship with Maggie, which has soured after the strawberry incident. Sam, wanting a re-do with Trudy, agrees to help. Their efforts prove to be ineffective but humorous, revealing hidden motives and secrets, ultimately ending with the status quo mostly intact.

Show dates: March 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14 (2020)

Tom Stoppard’s ARCADIA Opens October 4th at Village Players of Fort Thomas

VP_Arcadia 2September 25, 2019, Fort Thomas, KY—Village Players of Fort Thomas is excited to announces its season opener, Arcadia, by Tom Stoppard. All performances will be staged in Village Players’ intimate theater on the bottom level of the building the organization inherited last year from the Fort Thomas Woman’s Club at 8 N Fort Thomas Ave. The show runs October 4, 5, 6, 10, 11 & 12.

This brilliant play moves smoothly between 1809 and the present at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits—the attraction Newton left out.

Arcadia is directed by jef brown and features the talents of eleven local actors: Jeannine Aliee, Bill Brohaugh, Oliver Kai Davis, Wayne Kirsch, Josh Roden, Gretchen Schultz, BJ Simpson, Stephen Stricker, Alexander Walz, Bryce Willson, Aubrey Wilson, and Ashley Wuerdeman.

Village Players of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, is a vibrant community theatre that has produced plays and musicals for more than 50 years. Performing in an intimate space, you will feel like you are part of the action, sitting inches from the actors on three sides of the stage. We strive to appeal to a broad audience, producing three main-stage shows of varying styles and a children’s show each winter.
