The Yorkshire Playhouse is holding open auditions for the first show of our 2017 Season.

15 to 25 Male or Female Parts are Available, Various Ages

Rehearsals begin: January 3rd, 2017

The Plot:  The wealthy, elite businessmen of Paris have a plan to extract the oil which they believe lies beneath the streets of Paris regardless of the consequences to the poor who live there. Countess Aurelia plans to stand in their way. It’s a fable, mixed up with a farce, with a healthy helping of reason, and more than its fair share of madness. Watch a Madwoman and her crazy cast of friends do what we all wish we could in one of the most humorous and relevant plays ever written. We almost guarantee it will make you laugh till you cry! You won't want to miss your chance to be a part of the Madness!

The Characters: The Waiter, The Broker, The Ladies, The Prospector, The Street Juggler, The Adolphe Bertauts, The President, Dr. Jadin, The Baron, Countess Aurelia, Therese, The Doorman, The Street Singer, The Policeman, The Flower Girl, Pierre, The Ragpicker, The Sergeant, Paulette, The Sewer Man, The Deaf-Mute, Mme. Constance, Irma, Mlle. Gabrielle, The Shoelace, Peddler, Mme. Josephine

This fantastic cast of quirky characters, each with a distinct purpose in the plot, jaunt in and out of the play.  Many actors will likely play multiple roles, so come prepared to find each characters distinct humor and beauty. Looking for a smaller role? This show has it all! Whether you have years of experience or none at all, we welcome everyone to audition at the Yorkshire Playhouse. Come join us for auditions!
