Theater auditions: ‘Chapter Two’ in Cocoa Beach

Here’s an audition notice for a Neil Simon show in Cocoa Beach:

Surfside Players, Cocoa Beach, rings in the new year with open auditions for Neil Simon’s Chapter Two.

George Schneider, a recently widowed writer, is introduced to soap opera actress Jennie Malone by his press agent brother Leo and her best friend Faye.  Jennie’s unhappy marriage to a football player has dissolved after six years, and she’s not certain if she’s ready to start dating yet.  Neither is George, whose memories of his first wife threaten to interfere with any effort to embrace a new romance.  It’s a bumpy trip on the road to Dreamland for these not-so-young lovers.  While Leo has a fling with Faye in a farcical subplot, George and Jennie stumble on, overcoming both their hesitation on the rebound and their emotional neediness.

Auditions for Neil Simon’s Chapter Two are 7:00 p.m. Sunday January 2 and Monday January 3, 2011, at our playhouse at the corner of Brevard Avenue and Fifth Street South, in Cocoa Beach.  There are roles for two men and two women in their 30s-50s.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.  Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script; no experience necessary and no preparation required.  Make a New Year’s Resolution to try something new!

For this show, Surfside Players is proud to introduce our new director Janet E. Rubin, Ph.D., recently Professor of Theatre at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan with over thirty years of directing experience, making her Brevard County debut!

Performance dates are February 18 – March 6, 2010 (three weekends), Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.  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 for more info.
