Those at the Tyrone Community Players in Tyrone ask, “Do you love to laugh and make others laugh? Do you have some close girlfriends that you know well, maybe a little too well? Do you sometimes feel as if life is passing you by and you don’t know what to do about it?”
If the answer is yes to those questions, the players suggest auditioning for the upcoming Tyrone Community Players production of “Exit Laughing.” This really funny, yet touching, show can help solve all of those nagging questions.
In the show, Connie, Leona, Millie and Mary have played bridge together every week for 25 years. They share nearly everything with each other and have come to depend on their weekly gatherings as a source of stability in their lives.
That ends the day one of this close knit “sisters” dies. Connie, Leona and Millie begin to look to the future as a trio instead of a quartet, and with the help of “snacks from above,” a young male dancer, Mary and an “ugly urn” they, together, they find their way into their new future.
Written with great humor and creative situations, Exit Laughing promises to leave the audience with just that, leaving the theater with a smile and laughter erupting all the way home.
Auditions will take place Monday and Tuesday, April 22 and 23 at 7 p.m. each evening in The Building, home of the TCP, located at 1019 Logan Ave., Tyrone. Please enter through the back door off the parking lot.
Characters in this presentation are:
Connie: A divorced woman, in her 50s or early 60s, who has allowed her life to stop at the time of her divorce. A strong woman, in charge of her schedule and life.
Leona: A beautician who believes her better days, both in appearance and prospects, are behind her. She chooses to use alcohol to help blur her vision of the present and future. Also aged 50s or early 60s.
Millie: This woman marches to the beat of her own drummer. A drummer no one can hear but her. She is endearingly naive and sweet. Same age as other two women.
Rachel: Connie’s college aged daughter who has a bit of an “attitude” about life, men and her mother. She is in her 20s.
Bobby: A gift from a departed friend to help her “Bridge Sisters” learn to live again. A college aged man.
All ages are flexible and all parts are available. There are some adult themes discussed by the women. Auditions will consist of reading from the script.
