Cresson Lake Playhouse is pleased to announce audition dates for Cheat Sheets. In this hilarious farce, college professor Willa is having the worst day of her life. She caught a student cheating, her daughter is dating a punk band singer, and she may be losing her job. Then her best friend, Louwana, shows up to help her save the day. Their crazy plan dissolves into mistaken identities, slamming doors, cross-dressing, and three matching laundry bags – only one of which contains laundry.
Cheat Sheets author, FJ Hartland, will also be directing the play. FJ is an award-winning playwright whose plays have been produced in New York, Miami, Columbus, Wheeling, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. Some of his greatest successes have been at the Pittsburgh New Works Festival where he has received seven nominations for Best Play winning four times.
Roles will include:
DR. ARTHUR SNELL, assistant professor of English, 40’s
WILLA DRAKE, also an assistant professor of English, 40’s
ELMER (better known as SCAB), college student. Late teens
DEAN ALOYSIUS ROSWELL, college administrator, 50’s
OPHELIA, WILLA’s daughter, a college freshman
LUWANNA YORK, WILLA’s best friend, 40’s
Auditions for Cresson Lake Playhouse’s upcoming production of Cheat Sheets will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, July 18 and 19 at 6:30 p.m. (please note: this is a change from the original audition dates previously published) at the Eleanor Lantzy Rehearsal Hall, 429 S. Center Street in Ebensburg across from Agway. (At the back of the former Sun Seekers building.)
Each auditionee will be asked to read scenes from the script. Also auditionees are asked to please bring their calendars. They will need to list all rehearsal conflicts ahead of time at auditions. It is vital in casting that we know of any work conflicts or vacations in advance, so that we can work around them. Resume and headshots are optional.
Cheat Sheets performances will run at the Cresson Lake Playhouse August 31 – September 9. Show days are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets for these performances will be $12, $16 or $20 each and can be reserved online here or by calling Cresson Lake Playhouse at 814-472-4333.
