Auditions Set for Key for Two

Director Richard Bostwick has scheduled auditions for the first show of the 2011 season, the wickedly comic Key for Two by John Chapman and Dave Freeman.

Auditions will be Monday December 27th and Tuesday December 28th, 6:00 p.m., at Hallowell City Hall.

The audition will include cold readings from various scripts and some improvisational work. Excellent roles are available for 3 men and 4 women of all ages.

Key for Two is a frothy farce designed for those who like their theatrical entertainment broad and uncomplicated. In this wickedly amusing play by two master craftsmen of comedy, Harriet, a divorcee living in an elegant flat in Brighton, solves her financal problems by entertaining two married gentlemen callers on different days of the week. The scheme faces collapse when her best friend Anne, whose marriage is tottering, arrives at the flat hotly pursued by her husband.

One of Harriet's lovers is confined to Harriet's bed wth a sprained ankle, and the second lover turns up unexpectedly, closely followed by two irate wives in search of itinerant husbands. The indescribable confusion builds to a rich complexity of mistaken identity and farcical situations. The Daily Telegraph (London) called Key for Two "the happiest of frolics."

Performance dates for Key for Two are:

  • February 25th and 26th, 7:30 pm
  • February 27th, 2:00 pm matinee
  • March 3rd, 4th and 5th, 7:30 pm
