Gold Leaf Theatre Productions will be holding open auditions for:
Beau Jest by James Sherman
Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Kringle. She tells t…hem she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role and Sarah’s parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob (Special thanks to Samuel French).
January 2 at 7:15pm and January 4 at 7:15pm.
Please come prepared to do cold readings from the script.
