CFABS Community Players holding auditions for ‘Moon Over Buffalo’


Moon 1The CFABS Community Players is auditioning actors for its next production, Ken Ludwig’s farce Moon Over Buffalo. Gary Obeldobel directs, with performances scheduled for July 19-23, 2017.

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on fading 1950s stars George and Charlotte Hay. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep with five actors in Buffalo, New York. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they 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, resulting from Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

There are eight characters in the play (George Hay, Charlotte Hay, Ethel, Rosalind, Howard, Eileen, Paul and Richard), which includes parts for senior actors. Are any of them for you? Well, The Boston Herald says they’re “roles that any actor of a certain age would give his or her soul to play.”

Auditions will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 30 and 31, at the Center for Performing Arts, 10150 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs. Enter the east side of the main building (the one that faces Bonita Beach Road).

CFABS is now using Casting Manager to schedule audition appointments. Visit CFABS’ Casting Manager page to set up your audition account. Once you’re signed up, you will receive notifications of future CFABS auditions.
