Auditions: ‘Funny Money’ in Cocoa Beach:

Here’s an audition notice from the Surfside Players:

Surfside Players announces open auditions for ‘Funny Money’
by Ray Cooney

Surfside Players, Cocoa Beach, is proud to announce open auditions for Funny Money, by the master of British farce, Ray Cooney.  Mild-mannered Henry Perkins accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase — one full of illicit cash — and decides to keep it, telling his confused wife to leave everything behind and flee the country with him.  Arriving at the door is a police detective who thinks Henry was soliciting in the men’s room of the pub, followed by another detective who thinks Henry is dead when a corpse holding Henry’s briefcase is found in the Thames. Henry’s inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.

Auditions for Funny Money are 7 p.m. Sunday September 12 and Monday September 13, 2010, at our playhouse at the corner of Brevard Avenue and Fifth Street South, in Cocoa Beach.  There are roles for six men and two women, able to play ages 35 and up.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script; no experience necessary and no preparation required.

Performance dates are November 5 – 21, 2010 (three weekends), Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Directed by Troy Jones.  Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.  To get to Surfside from the mainland, take US-520 or US-528 to A1A southbound, OR take Pineda or US-192 to A1A northbound.  Drive into Cocoa Beach, and turn west on Fifth Street South.  Call (321) 783-3127 or go to www.surfsideplayers.com for more info.

  1. First night of auditions we had fewer people trying out than there are characters in the play. Everyone please come to the second audition night! British farce! Audience laughing until they fall out of their seats!
