Characters:
Chris Gorman (F) - Chris is an attractive woman in her mid 30s. She is nervous
and neurotic. She recently quit smoking but quickly falls off the wagon. She will
be smoking prop cigarettes through most of the second act. Chris also has a few too
many vodka martinis and plays slightly drunk starting about midway through the show.
Chris does some physical comedy.
Ken Gorman (M) - Ken is Chris’ husband. He is in his 40s and is Charley’s attorney
and friend. Ken is pompous, serious, a know-it-all...when he can hear. About
midway through the first act, Ken has a slight accident with the shotgun. It goes off
next to his head and leaves him virtually deaf for a good part of the center section of
the show. Ken has to be shouted at, shouts in return and constantly mis-hears what is
being said to him.
Claire Ganz (F) - Claire is late 30s to early 40s. She is an unimpressed smartmouth
who is seemingly amused by everything that is going on. Not surprising considering
her husband...
Leonard “Lenny” Ganz (M) - Lenny is Claire’s husband and is also in his late
30s to early 40s. He is Charley’s accountant. Lenny is by far the most foul-mouthed,
outspoken member of the cast. He is also HILARIOUS. IMPORTANT NOTE: Lenny
has a bizarre three page monologue at the end of the show where he is posing as
“Charley” and tells his version of just what’s been going on around there. Lenny and
Claire have also had a car wreck on the way over and Lenny’s neck keeps locking up
on him.
Cookie Cusack (F) - Cookie is a flamboyant host of her own cooking show.
She is in her mid to late 40s, garish, a bit ditzy and will be expected to deliver quite
a bit of physical comedy. Cookie has a bad back...so bad that she carries a special
pillow with her everywhere. Her back is regulary going out with much screaming and
gyration. A couple of times Cookie is actually forced to crawl on and off the stage due
to her back ailments.
Ernie Cusack (M) - Ernie is Cookie’s husband and Charley’s analyst. He is in
his late 40s/early 50s. He is a somewhat quiet and calming presence in the midst of
the storm of confusion. Although he does lose it a couple of times. He helps Cookie
prepare the meal for the evening and is mistaken for the butler at one point.
Glenn Cooper (M) - Glenn is a candidate for the State Senate. He is in his
late 30s/early 40s and obviously quite handsome. The TV cameras love him. He is
constantly worried about his image and how involvement in the possible crimes being
committed all around him might impact his candidacy.
Cassie Cooper (F) - Cassie is Glenn’s wife. She is younger, probably early 30s,
very good looking and totally nuts. She and Glenn hate each other. She doesn’t want
to be there, she is constantly fi ghting with Glenn and she is constantly threatening divorce.
Cassie is a believer in the power of crystals. She also hides in the bathroom a
lot. At one point, to punish Glenn, Cassie tousles her hair and fl irts outrageously with
some of the other male guests. She also attacks Glenn with a cell phone (a 1988 cell
phone) off stage in a fit of rage.
Officer Ben Welch (M) - No nonsense cop in his 40s-50s. Has a couple of
smaller monologues.
Officer Connie Pudney (F) - Late 20s cop. Welch’s partner. Minimal lines.

STAGE RIGHT Announces Date Change: Auditions for The Producers Dec. 6 & 7

STAGE RIGHT of Texas, resident theatre company at the historic Crighton Theatre, announces auditions for the musical The Producers Dec. 6 & 7 at 7 pm. The dates have been changed from when originally announced. The show is directed by Manny Cafeo.

Plot Summary:

A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends. – Music Theatre International

Audition Location: Crighton Theatre 234 N. Main St. Conroe, TX 77301

A fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway's brightest new heroine (and of course, her chihuahua, Bruiser). Based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
