Tuesday January 17 at 8:00 PM.

Where: Westfield Community Players

SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY
Boeing-Boeing is by Marc Camoletti and is translated by Beverley Cross & Francis Evans.

The Story: Bernard, an American businessman living in Paris, smoothly juggles love affairs with three airline hostesses (as they were called back in the 60s), who touch down briefly but amorously in his apartment between flights. There’s Janet, the stunning American stewardess from PanAm; Jacqueline, the sexy French stewardess from Air France; and Judith, the passionate German dominatrix stewardess from Lufthansa. Thanks to Bernard’s keen study of flight schedules and the efficiency of his grumbling French housekeeper, Bertha, his three mistresses have no clue of one another’s existence. But when Bernard’s old school-pal Robert arrives from the Boonies, things get bumpy. Schedule changes, flight delays and chaos ensue in this hysterical, high-flying fiancée-fueled fiasco!

AUDITION LOCATION:Duncan Smith Theater
36 Crawfords Corner Road, Holmdel, NJ 07733

Roles:
Ten Roles (9 Men – 1 Woman) – All Open

George Milton, male, 30-35 years old
A small, quick-witted man who is Lennie’s de facto guardian, traveling companion, fellow ranch hand, and best friend. Although he frequently complains about his caretaking responsibilities, he is obviously devoted to and protective of Lennie. This friendship is what helps sustain George’s dreams of a better future – a fantasy of a little piece of farmland to call their own. George has a tendency to posture around others. He and Lennie are perennially out of work and down on their luck, but they take on these trials together.

Lennie Small, male, 30-35 years old
A physically imposing, lumbering, and occasionally clumsy childlike man, also a migrant worker along with his friend and companion George. His mental disability means that he is almost entirely reliant upon George for guidance and protection, however Lennie looks up to his pal with a combination of awe, respect, and love. The two men share a vision of a farm they will own together, a vision that Lennie believes to the bottom of his heart. He is gentle and kind, but he has no conception of his own strength, which gets him into trouble.

Candy, male, 60-70 years old
An aging ranch handyman, Candy lost his hand in an accident some time ago. He worries about his future on the ranch and fears the arrival of the day when his age will make him useless to others. When he hears of George’s description of their dream farm, he offers a considerable amount of money to join their venture, if only they would include him in the plans. Candy has an ancient dog he loves dearly (will be portrayed by an actual dog on stage).

The Boss, flexible age, over 40 years old
The Boss is a stocky and well-dressed man in charge of the ranch George and Lennie land at. He is also Curley’s father. He is stern but fair-minded employer – an anecdote from Candy says the Boss gifted a gallon of whiskey to the ranch hands one Christmas. He makes only one appearance on stage.

Curley, male, 22-30 years old
The Boss’ son: a young, impetuous, and combative character. Curley indicates he “has done quite a bit in the ring” at one time, but now is just “a little guy, alla time pickin’ scraps with big guys.” He obviously has several chips on his shoulder, many of them regarding his newly acquired wife of two weeks and the way the other ranch hands look at her. His jealousy and frequent losses of temper serve to accentuate his essential pettiness – and his inadequacies..

Curley’s Wife, female, 19-25 years old
Only known throughout the whole play by her relationship to her new husband Curley and a string of unpleasant epithets from the ranch hands, she is a victim of time and place. Young, pretty, and isolated as the only woman in the play, she is, like many of the ranch hands, desperately lonely and has broken dreams of a different life. She is a victim in many ways, and her preoccupation with her looks gets her – and Lennie – into trouble.

Slim, male, 35-50 years old
The consummate ranch hand and the main driver of the mule team, Slim is called the “prince of the ranch.” And for good reason – he is tall, good looking, strong, and greatly respected by the other characters for his physical abilities around the ranch as well as his treatment of the other workers. He keeps his mouth shut unless it is to speak for the weak. He is an insightful, kind, and a natural leader – and the only other character who seems to intuit the nature of the bond between George and Lennie.

Carlson, male, 35-50 years old
Another one of the ranch hands, he is a thick-bodied man who constantly complains about the smell 0f Candy’s old dog. Carlson is a simple man who enjoy simple pleasures, but he has little sympathy for Candy when convinces him to let him take the dog out back and shoot it.

Whit, male, flexible age, 25-50 years old
Another one of the ranch hands, noted as a youngish laborer. He is amiable and good-natured, but a bit of a pushover. He and Carlson are in company together for much of the play, though when it comes down to it he is the only one who takes Candy’s side over the killing of the dog – but only for a moment before resigning himself to the group’s will.

Crooks, African American male, 40-60 years old
The proud, bitter, and somewhat cynical black stable-hand, Crooks gets his name, it is indicated in the script, from his crooked back. He lives by himself and is largely shunned by the other ranch hands – and he actively shuns them back, regarding any offers of kindness with suspicion. This bitterness stems from a combination of loneliness and the extremely pervasive, casual prejudices held by the country at the time this story takes place. He does take somewhat of a shine to Lennie eventually, and though he is doubtful of empty dreams, he too asks if he can join them and hoe the garden.

Murder is a Real Hoot! in the BERGEN COUNTY PLAYERS Production of THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940



Bergen County Players (BCP) continues its 84th season with The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, John Bishop's riotous comedy whodunit, opening January 14th, 2017. The murder, mystery and mayhem is being helmed by veteran director Steven Bell of Hackensack, and will run through February 4, 2017 at the Little Firehouse Theatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell. Tickets may be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200 or by visiting the box office during regular box office hours.

Set in December 1940 in the library of an isolated Westchester country mansion in Chappaqua, New York, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 brings together the creative team responsible for a recent ill-fated Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious "Stage Door Slasher"). The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and identities -- all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem that follows when the infamous "Slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again -- and again. As the composer, lyricist, actors and director rehearse the backer's audition for a new show, a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind revolving bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. The guests must plow ahead to solve the mystery and unmask the "Slasher" before it is too late!

Zany comedy coming to Kelsey Theatre in January 2017!



What do two cops, three crooks, eight doors, and a kilt-wearing killer have in common?  They’re the moving parts in the Pennington Players’ latest production,Unnecessary Farce.  The zany comedy takes the Kelsey Theatre stage in January 2017.   Performances are January 20, 21, 27, and 28, 2017, at 8:00 pm and January 22 and 29, 2017, at 2:00 pm.   Kelsey Theatre is located on the Mercer County Community College West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.  A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening night performance on January 20, 2017. 

The classic farce, which features slapstick and other physical comedy, pairs with a contemporary American plot.  In a hotel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his new accountant.  In the room next door, two undercover cops are supposed to catch the meeting on videotape.  But there’s some confusion as to who’s in which room, who’s watching the video, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes.   You might want to take notes to keep track of all that.

Bedlam makes McCarter Theatre debut with Hamlet and Saint Joan in rotating repertory




PRINCETON, NJ: McCarter Theatre Center is starting the New Year with a fresh look at two of literature’s most enigmatic and dynamic characters. From January 13 – February 12, the celebrated New York theater company, Bedlam, makes its McCarter Theatre Center debut with their critically-acclaimed stripped down productions of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan, in rotating repertory.

Known for their innovative, site-specific stagings, Bedlam’s Hamlet and Saint Joan are performed by four actors playing all roles; ensemble members Eric Tucker, Andrus Nichols, Edmund Lewis, and Tom O’Keefe rocket from character to character at a lightning-bolt’s pace. Bedlam’s kinetic performances will bring these classics to life in McCarter’s Berlind Theatre where stage and audience will shift from
show to show, and from act to act. In addition to traditional house seating, patrons have the opportunity to purchase seats on stage for a closer, more intimate relationship to the action.

As Bedlam Artistic Director, Ensemble member, and Director of both Hamlet and St. Joan describes, “For us, it’s about making the audience know they're part of the play. Their own placement feeds the energy of the story. As the audience gets moved around, they're sharing the space with us. There's no ‘this is your area, this is our area.’ This is at the heart of what we do.”

ABOUT BEDLAM’s HAMLET AND SAINT JOAN

Eric Tucker and Andrus Nichols co-founded Bedlam in 2012, presenting George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan on a shoestring budget with only four actors playing over 25 characters. The show received instant recognition and was extended four times. Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal was an early admirer, describing it as “Thrilling! An unforgettable show! The most exciting George Bernard Shaw revival I’ve ever seen, bar none.”

In 2013, Bedlam produced William Shakespeare’s Hamlet with the same four actors, again playing over 25 characters amongst themselves. Hamlet ran in repertory with Saint Joan and both productions were then transferred for a commercial Off-Broadway run at The Lynn Redgrave Theater in the winter of 2013/2014. Ben Brantley, the head theatre critic of The New York Times wrote, “Every member of Bedlam hears voices. Not of God and his saints, but of Shaw (who probably would have said that’s the same thing) and Shakespeare. And I mean they believe they hear these playwrights, in all their sonority, telling them what to do…anyone who listens to the eminently sane and persuasive voices of Bedlam is destined to become a convert.”

Bedlam’s shows have been noted as Ben Brantley’s “Critics’ Picks” for The New York Times six times, noted on The New York Times “Top Ten Best Show Lists” two times, as well as those of The Wall Street Journal and Time Magazine respectively. The Wall Street Journal also noted Eric Tucker as “Director of the Year” in 2014. Bedlam has won two Irne Awards, two Off Broadway Alliance Awards and an Obie Grant. Bedlam has also been nominated for two Lucille Lortel awards, a Drama League award, and four Elliot Norton awards, winning for Best Visiting Production and Best Ensemble for Saint Joan.
