We are currently in the process of putting together an adult comedy show. The group is called The Bawdy Broads & Company. It is based on the 16th century, but with modern twists. The basis of the show is three wenches, the broads, are supposed to be entertaining the audience with traditional folk songs. (Being an expert singer is not required; these songs were written for almost everyone to be able to sing them.) However, being bawdy, the songs are filled with sexual innuendos and alcoholic references. In addition, the broads often get side tracked by their own witty banter, improper remarks, and of course the distractions of the & Company.
While the show is a skit-based comedy show, there is a need for improvisation skills. There is a high amount of audience participation that must be responded to in addition to the remarks of other cast members, including the broads themselves. The Bawdy Broads & Company is about having a good time and entertaining others while we do it.
While we are starting in Fayetteville because there are already a few local venues that are interested in the show, we are willing to and looking forward to expanding to other areas once we get off the ground. We are also looking to fill four roles at this point.
Requirements: All participants must be 21+ years of age, have reliable transportation, not be easily offended because of the content of the show, quick witted, and have the ability to embrace the character enough to maintain on and off the stage while on venue.
Helga: 16th century German beer wench. Enthusiastic. A bit of an air-head. Playful. Emotional.
Ciara: 16th century English wench. Business focused. Motherly in the sense of creating peace amongst the other broads. High strung.
Dick: 16th century Irish commoner. (His career choice is open to whomever is cast.) Lude. Always trying to convince the broads to have sex with him. Easily offended.
Father Jones: 16th century English priest. Serious and shy. Attempts to help the broads see the sins in their ways, but is often distracted by being a human male himself.
We are planning on auditions in Fayetteville on Saturday, January 21, 2012. If you are interested in one of the above mentioned roles, or you would like more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
