Gettysburg Stage is holding auditions for Egad, The Woman in White, a melodrama by Tim Kelly.
This laugh oriented, old fashioned melodrama is based on Wilkie Collins’ classic and it’s wild, fast and funny. It features a disreputable (and hilarious) villain who dispatches his adversaries with nefarious ease and even seals his wife in a madhouse to steal her vast fortune! He battles a wicked countess in one of the most uproarious fight scenes ever staged! When all else fails, he engineers mock funerals. But he’s scared of the mysterious “woman in white” who’s escaped from the asylum to seek him out. Abandoned wives, insolent servants, lawyers, hypochondriacs and manly drawing masters parade across the stage in gales of comedy terminating only when the villain is brought to justice in an audience cheering, outrageous and spectacular finale. Designed for an easy rehearsal schedule and simple production, this delight is suitable for all groups looking for a play that’s fun to perform.
The cast consists of 3 men and 7 woman of varying ages.
The audition will consist of cold readings from the script. Auditions will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, April 23 and 24 at the Local 1776 Union Hall on 3161 Chambersburg Rd. (Route 30) at 7pm.
