Hamilton-Gibson Productions is holding auditions for “Into The Breeches” at 6:30pm on Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 10:30am on Saturday, Jan. 29 and at 1pm on Sunday, Jan. 30 at the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro, Pa. No experience is necessary to audition.

This comedy by George Brant explores how a community theatre grapples with the loss of its male artistic director and leading men who are fighting across the sea in World War II. Determined to press on, the director's wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare's “Henriad”, assembling an unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theatre experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence because the show must go on! The characters include six females and two males. They are:

  • Maggie Dalton, a white female in her mid-forties, a talented but untested director who is passionate, determined and smart.
  • Celeste Fielding, a white female in her fifties, a diva who thinks she is glamorous.
  • Ellsworth Snow, a white male in his sixties, the community theatre’s conservative, sour-faced board president.
  • Winifred Snow, a white female in her fifties, the untalented but enthusiastic socialite who is benevolent but slightly vacant.
  • Stuart Lasker, a white male in his forties, the community theatre’s quip-ready stage manager.
  • Ida Green, an African-American female in her thirties, the imaginative costume designer.
  • June Bennett, a white female in her late teens/early twenties, the beautiful and endearingly innocent ingénue.
  • Grace Richards, a white female in her late twenties/early thirties, a raw talent who is meek and humble.

Performances will be on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 1, 2 and 3, and Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9 at the Warehouse Theatre. Sponsors are Larry and Barbara Biddison.

All members of the cast and crew will be masked during all auditions, meetings and rehearsals. Anyone who is feeling ill in any way is asked not to attend.
