“Moon Over Buffalo” Auditions

August 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Audition to be a part of Moon Over Buffalo, a madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor! This hilarious play follows George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s who are on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue. However, the Hays receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the play’s script. Needed: One woman in her 70s, one woman in her 50s or 60s, two women in their 20s or 30s, two men in their 50s or 60s, and two men in their 20s and 30s. Performance runs September 14–18, 2022. Free and open to the public.
