FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS runs May 11-19

FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS
Presented by Wyoming Players
May 11-19
Newport 

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.

WP Auditioning Two Roles for FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS

Wyoming Players-Ohio Oldest Community Theater Company is holding auditions for the parts of Trish and Tripp in FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS by Alan Ball. At Essex Studio’s Room 276 on Sunday February 19th from 2pm-5pm.

FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS by Alan Ball
Directed by Keith Gabbard and Produced by Shannon Gabbard (May 11-13, 17-19, 2012)

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.

Casting for: 1 Man (mid twenties), 1 Woman (stage age late 20s-early 30s).

  • Trisha: One of the bride’s oldest friends with a supposed bad reputation. She is striking and confident but is jaded when it comes to romance and relationships. Although a certain groomsman may have piqued her interest.
  • Tripp: The Groom’s cousin and one of groomsmen. He is self assured and charming. He is a potential love interest for Trisha.

If you are interested in auditioning for either part please contact the director by e-mail or phone to schedule and appointment.

DEARLY BELOVED runs Jan. 20-29

DEARLY BELOVED
Presented by Beavercreek Community Theatre
Jan. 20-29
Beavercreek

The Futrelle Sisters, Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink, are throwing a wedding. Frankie has almost made herself sick with elaborate preparations for her daughter Tina Jo’s antebellum-inspired wedding, and the rumor mill in their small town of Fayro, Texas, is working overtime. No surprise there, the Futrelle Sisters have never been strangers to gossip. Twink’s desperate attempts to get her boyfriend of fifteen-and-one-half years down the aisle, Frankie’s ongoing conversations with their dead mother, and Honey Raye’s tendency to race to the altar at every opportunity have kept tongues wagging for years.
