Theater auditions: ‘Leading Ladies’ at Theatre Downtown

Here’s an announcement for auditions for a Ken Ludwig comedy at Theatre Downtown:

Theatre Downtown Auditions for Leading Ladies
By Ken Ludwig

A hilarious comedy about two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania in 1958.  When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash.  The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces!  Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister.  Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.  Leading Ladies premiered at the Alley Theatre in October 2004, directed by the author.
