The Edmonds-based Driftwood Players will hold auditions March 14-15 for their new play, “Teacup Tipsy,” by local Northwest playwright Jeff Stilwell.
The play is described as “a wacky, heart-warming comedy about love, loneliness and the lengths to which we go to live out our dreams.” Â Here’s the plot: Shy and mousy Reginald tries desperately to attract the notice of the beautiful Lyla (if only she’d stop dancing!) through winning a mug of tea on the house by reciting “St. Theresa’s Teacup Tipsy” (five times, fast)! However, his hapless stutter, the miserly grousings of Mrs. Widdershins, and the iambic pentametered exhortations of the Man in the Box all keep getting in Reginald’s way!
Auditions are Sunday, March 14 starting at 3 p.m. and Â Monday, March 15 starting at 7 p.m at the Driftwood Players Administrative Offices, 306 Main St., Edmonds.Â There are parts for men (20s to 50s), women (20s and 50 to 60s),
Please prepare a short contemporary monologue, bring picture and resume or a recent photo.Â Appointments may be made online at: www.driftwoodplayers.com or by calling 425-774-9600.Â Additional character information and a sample script are available at the website as well.
