The ladykillers by Graham Linehan
I shall be holding auditions for the June production at 8.00pm on Wednesday 25th February and at 3.00pm on Sunday 1st March at the Settlement.
This very funny stage adaptation of one of my all-time favourite movies is written by one of the country’s best contemporary comedy writers.
Constable Macdonald An upright custodian of the law
Mrs Louisa Wilberforce A lady
Professor Marcus The Mastermind
Major Courtney A con man
Harry Robinson An up and coming thug
One-round The Muscle
Louis Harvey A stone cold killer
Mrs Jane Tromleyton A friend of Mrs Wilberforce
Mrs Wilberforce’s friends At least 6 friends who come to the party
I’m also going to need a few “extras”, male and female, for a short filmed segment.
For Mrs Wilberforce’s friends I need at least 6 actresses of any age who can stay in character and ad lib a bit. You will be making a noisy entrance and exit and will be on stage over two scenes. I do realise that we will have to use make-up and costume to make you look older and less glamourous than you all actually are but you’re actresses and this is the magic of theatre.
I hope that I shall see you at one of the auditions. I’m really looking forward to this one.
