Auditions for this hilarious comedy of the worst singer in the world, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect will take place ​May 22 11am-3pm at the Point Loma Assembly-Home of the Point Loma Playhouse.  Appointments can be arranged and beyond that time if needed and walk ups welcomed. Please bring a face covering and social distancing will be respected at this time.  A prepared comedic monologue is requested along with readings from the script. Send resume and headshot to info@pointlomaplayhouse.com

Characters:
Florence Foster Jenkins - (this role has been cast)
Cosme McMoon - Male, late 20's to mid-40's, a pianist (actor does not need to know how to play the piano).  He is surrounded by what he may perceive as "craziness".  (Flexible casting)
St Claire - Male, late 50's, early 70's Romantically involved with Florence, is extremely charming, English, and flirtatious.  (flexible casting)
Dorothy - Female, 50's - 70's close friends with Florence. (flexible casing)
Maria - Female, 20's-50's. Housemaid with an attitude.  Can speak Spanish. (Flexible casting)
Mrs. Verrinder-Gedge - Female, 30's - 70's.  A strong minded proper woman that is combative with Florence. (Flexible casting)

Known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale', she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. She paid little attention to her critics, instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was.  Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls in 1940's New York. The performer who everyone wanted to see live was, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming play.

​The play is scheduled to open September 18 with rehearsals beginning August 9. PLP is located at the historic Point Loma Assembly Hall at 3035 Talbot St 92106
Performance Dates: September 17,18,19,24,25,26, October 1,2,3. (Three weekends)
The production is directed by Pati Reynolds, Production Manager Jerry Pilato
