Step out of your comfort zone and tryout for a part! You will have a great time! Area Community Theatre in Tomah will hold auditions for the new comedy, Buying the Moose, on June 5 & 6, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at Area Community Theatre 1st Floor meeting room. Written by Michael G. Wilmot and directed by Sharon Larkin, the show will tentatively run Sept. 29-Oct 1 and Oct. 5-8, 2017. Be prepared to cold read from the script.
Seeking two men and two women. ROB: GREG: (Rob’s brother) Slightly older than Rob. BETTY: (Rob’s wife) and CHERYL: (Greg’s wife)
Buying the Moose is a quick and witty “he said/she said” play about two couples, one in crisis and the other caught up in their chaos of misunderstandings and anxieties.
A truly funny production, Buying the Moose is about the ways that men and women communicate — or better yet miscommunicate — with one another.
Show Synopsis: Rob’s wife picked the most inconvenient moment to come home from a business trip. While strains of Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers play, Betty finds him wearing a tube top and awkwardly canoodling with an inflatable doll. She assumes the worst and turns to her sister-in-law, Cheryl, for comfort while his brother, Greg, comes over to set him straight. The resulting hilarious fallout brings two brothers and two couples closer together…and tattooed!
What follows is a hilarious comedy of malebonding,
female camaraderie and hidden surprises. Wilmot’s script is funny above all, but also perceptive, pointed, and, on occasion, even insightful.
Help is also needed for set construction, decoration, box office and stage hands.
Presented by special arrangement with Michael G. Wilmont and the Playwrights Guild of Canada.
