Brookfield Theatre announces open auditions for

“Suite Surrender”

by Michael McKeever

directed by Marilyn Olsen

produced by Sarah Denn

Brookfield Theatre announces open auditions on Sun., Aug. 12 & Mon., Aug. 13 at 7PM at the theatre.

(Show dates: Nov. 2 - 17)

It's 1942, and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel -- assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance...that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.

The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts is looking for all ethnic groups for their upcoming production of SUITE SURRENDER, written by Michael McKeever. All roles open. Strong comedy skills are encouraged, and there are lots of great roles for women!

Script scenes will be posted on the TBTA website, as well as provided at the auditions. Though not a musical, the two female leads do need to sing. Please prepare a short selection of a tune from the 1940s and in the style of wartime America. A capella or recorded accompaniment is fine as there will be no accompanist. The show runs the first 3 weekends in November: 11/2-11/17 with performances Friday and Saturday night, and Sunday matinees the first two weeks of the run. Rehearsals will likely be Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday until closer to the opening, when more frequent rehearsals will be necessary. The rehearsal schedule will be finalized once the show is cast and conflicts are given. No appointment is necessary. Please bring an updated resume and picture if you have it. If you are unavailable for any of the performance dates, we will unfortunately not be able to cast you, so please have your calendar with you for the audition.

Available Roles:

CLAUDIA MCFADDEN (F): 40s and up, America’s Beloved Matron of Song, a diva in the classic sense. Bigger than life, outspoken and knows her worth. In a well-publicized feud with Athena (think Joan Crawford/Bette Davis). Sings one solo and one duet.

ATHENA SINCLAIR (F): 40s and up, a Great Star of Stage and Screen, also a diva. Feuding with Claudia and is obsessed with her own image. A bit of a romantic, she has been married several times. Sings one duet.

BERNARD S. DUNLAP (M): 40s-50s, General Manager of the Palm Beach Royale Hotel & Spa. Nervous type.

MR. PIPPET (M): 40s and up, Claudia’s personal punching bag... Er... personal secretary. Diminutive, mousy, put-upon.

MURPHY STEVENS (F): 20s-30s, Athena’s personal secretary. In love with Francis.

DORA DEL RIO (F): 30s and up, a Gossip Columnist. Willing to do anything to “Get the story.” Great comedic timing and ability to do physical comedy.

MRS. EVERETT P. OSGOOD (F): 60s and up, a Society Matron and President of the Palm Beach Ladies for Unity. Rich philanthropist who loves the hijinks of the troops on leave.

FRANCIS (M): 20s-30s. A Bellhop, in love with Murphy

OTIS (M or F): 20s-30s. A bellhop, androgyny a plus.
