Show Dates: March 13 - 29 


Mistakenly apprenticed to a pirate (instead of a pilot) by his nursemaid at the age of eight, the handsome Frederic is now twenty-one and, though quite fond of the group of joyous and fun-loving pirates, chooses to abandon his profession and “lead a blameless life henceforth,” dedicating himself instead to their eradication. Shortly after leaving them, he encounters a gaggle of beautiful maidens and their father, the eccentric Major-General. The whole group has a run-in with the pirates themselves before escaping on the false premise that the Major-General is an orphan - a fact these tenderhearted pirates simply cannot help but take into account, given the fact that the majority of them are orphans themselves and “know what it’s like.” Just as Frederic is ready to lead a band of lily-livered policemen to take out the Pirate King and his men, a secret is uncovered that will change his fate forever.

Character List

Major-General Stanley (Playing 50’s): A one star-general in the British Army, Major-General Stanley is the protector of many young women, his wards.

The Pirate King (Playing 30’s – 40’s): A largely unsuccessful commander, the pirate king, although a flamboyant braggart, is too tender-hearted to do what pirates are supposed to do.

Samuel (Playing 50’s): The pirate king's lieutenant

Frederic (Playing 21): A pirate trainee, Frederic was apprenticed to the pirates by mistake. He is a noble young man who falls in love with Mabel but puts his sense of duty above everything else, including love.

Sergeant of Police (Playing 30’s – 40’s): The leader of a bumbling squad of policemen, the good-natured sergeant of police is committed to stopping the pirates.

Mabel (Playing 18): Major-General Stanley's youngest daughter; quickly falls in love with Frederic.

Edith (Playing 18 – 25): Another of Major-General Stanley’s daughters

Kate (Playing 18 – 25): Another of Major-General Stanley's daughters

Isabel (Playing 18 – 25): Another of Major-General Stanley's daughters

Sex Please, We're 60 (Comedy)

sex please


Audition Dates: March 15 & 16 (7 PM)

Show Dates: May 1 - 10



The comedy is set at Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast, which has been successful for many years, with her mostly female guests returning year after year. Her next-door neighbor, the elderly, silver-tongued, Bud “Bud the Stud” Davis, believes they come to spend time with him in romantic liaisons, which the prim and proper Mrs. Stancliff steadfastly denies. The proprietor’s other neighbor and would-be suitor, Henry Mitchell, is a retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called “Venusia” to increase the libido of menopausal women. When the untested pill gets mixed up with Bud’s Viagra, strange things happen.

Character List

Bud Davis (Playing 70+): the next-door neighbor to Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; weak, frail looking (the frailer the better), however, over the years, he has become renowned among the female guests as "Bud the Stud;" very elderly, somewhat infirm, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable.

Mrs. Stancliffe (Playing 60+): the owner of Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; a severe woman both in dress and manner; pursued by her next door neighbor, Henry; sensible, practical, punctual, business like, menopausal, but finally radiant and sensuous.

Henry Mitchell (Playing 60+): a retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe's "Gentleman Caller;" a mild mannered man who has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for twenty years; has developed Venusia; eventually comes out of his shell.

Victoria Ambrose (Playing 50+): a renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels; pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none; readily joins the plot to turn "Bud the Stud" into "Bud the Dud”, pretty, serious, intelligent, menopausal.

Hillary Hudson (Playing 50+): beautiful, well educated, articulate, and sophisticated in both manner and dress; old friend and co-worker of Henry's, who agrees to test the Venusia pills; elegant, charming, and menopausal.

Charmaine Beauregard (Playing 50+): the quintessential southern belle; definitely here at Rose Cottage for Bud and becomes the leading light in the plot to tame him; voluptuous, out-going, gushing, demonstrative, menopausal.
