West Coast Players will hold auditions for Doublewide, Texas by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten on Sunday, October 23 and Monday, October 24, 2016 at 7 p.m. at the theatre. Directed by Susan Demers.
Production dates are January 12 – February 5 (4 weekends).
In this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas – four doublewides and a shed – are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. Friends, enemies and neighbors realize they’ll have to work together to defeat the encroaching annexation if they – and their way of life – have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by ‘the big guys.’
By Hope, Jones, and Wooten, authors of The Red Velvet Cake Wars, Rex’s Exes, The Last Roundup of the Guacamole Queens, and Always a Bridesmaid.
Director Susan Demers will be casting 9 actors for this comedy:
- Joveeta Crumpler (F, 40s) — vivacious and driven, she has had it up to here, having been passed over again for a promotion at work.
- Caprice Crumpler (F, 60-70) — Joveeta’s feisty mother who loves to drink and is perhaps too young for her age.
- Norwayne “Baby” Crumpler (M, 40s) — Joveeta’s good ol’ boy brother who is taking his participation in a womanless beauty pageant way too seriously.
- Big Ethel Satterwhite (F, 60-70) — nurse at the Stairway To Heaven Retirement Village. She’s nobody’s fool but a fool at heart.
- Geogia Dean Rudd (F, 40s) — ball of fire, owns a diner, takes in every stray animal she comes across.
- Lark Barken (F, 20s) — baby on the way and down on her luck, looking for a job and a place to stay.
- Haywood Sloggett (M, 70s) — curmudgeon who lives across the road from the Crumplers and loathes their “trailer-trash” ways.
- Lomax Tanner (M, 40s) — officious city manager.
- Starla Pudney (F, 40s) – the mayor’s conniving, high-maintenance wife
