Written by Michael Parker and Susan Parker

Directed by Dennis Curry

Mrs. Stancliffe's Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast has been successful for many years. Her guests (nearly all women) return year after year. Her next door neighbor, the elderly, silver tongued, "Bud the Stud" Davis believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons, and Mrs. Stancliffe reluctantly accepts the fact that "Bud the Stud" is, in fact, good for business. Add to the guest list three older women, and a retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called "Venusia", after Venus the goddess of love, to increase the libido of menopausal women. The pill has not been tested. When Bud gets his hands on some of the Venusia pills, the fun begins, as he attempts to entertain all three women!

What's a cat to do? In Disney's The Aristocats KIDS, Madame's jealous butler Edgar cat-naps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. Luckily, Thomas O'Malley and his rag-tag bunch of alley cats come to their rescue! The show, based on the Disney film, features plenty of exuberant group numbers and a fun cast of cats, dogs and a couple of Geese.

"I HATE HAMLET"

Directed by Blake Flores

Auditions will be April 12 at 7:30pm at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter Street, Folsom

Show runs June 6 - July 12 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:00pm, plus Thursdays at 7:00pm on the last two weeks of the run.

Rehearsals are to be scheduled.

Please bring a headshot and resume if you have them.

CHARACTERS

Andrew Rally: (25 - 35) The former star of the now-canned soap opera Jim corman, MD.  Somewhat spoiled and arrogant by his success, his biggest neuroses stem from the lack of artistic integrity in his life, coming to a head when he's offered the role of Hamlet in Shakespeare in the Park.

John Barrymore: (30s - 40s) Once the greatest Hamlet of his generation and now currently a corpse.  But, that hasn't stopped him from living it up with copious amounts of booze, swords, and womanizing, as he works to train the reluctant Rally to become the next great Hamlet.

Gary Peter Lefkowitz: (30 - 45) Rally's writer-director-producer friend from Hollywood. The man is completely self-absorbed and totally cultureless, but exudes the smooth cool of cinematic style. A man's man in the realm of film and television, he's looking to get Rally back in the game -- and to score a nice commission for himself.

Deirdre McDavey: (20s) Rally's girlfriend. She's slightly ditzy, but completely charming, even down to her infuriating desire to save her virginity till marriage. She's an actress who's big on dreams if low on talent. She is not a gold-digger, but is sexually  attracted to artistry and talent -- which she believes Rally to have in abundance.

Lillian Troy: (70+) Rally's worldly and "very mature" German agent. She once had an affair with Barrymore, way back in the day. A chain smoker, she now has an ominous-sounding cough. She's pushing Rally to take the role of Hamlet, much to Gary's dismay.

Felicia Dantine: (30s - 50s) Rally's New Jersey real estate agent. She's used to servicing the weirdest of clients, and that eccentricity has rubbed off on her -- she claims to perform séances and chat with her dead mother on "the other side." Like Gary, she has no social filters, but she is too perky and positive to notice.

PLOT SYNOPSIS:

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment.  With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet on stage, but there's one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot, young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

For more information please call 916-353-1001.
