New Time Added: Audition Call for ‘The Mumberley Inheritance’

Onstage Uxbridge is thrilled to invite you to audition for:

THE MUMBERLEY INHERITANCE

Written by Warren Graves
Directed by Phil Cook
This comic melodrama is a fast-paced romp through the trials and tribulations of Mumberley Manor, England in 1900. Brother Jack is in Canada trying to find the secret of the Mumberley fortune. Father’s gambling debts are in the hands of the villainous Marmaduke Mayhem. What can poor daughter Daphne do but marry Mayhem, leaving Rodney Stoutheart and his stiff upper lip at the vestry door? Rodney disguises himself as Jack returned from Canada at the same moment as Jack actually returns. Thus the villain’s attempts to dispose of Jack invariably lead to unfortunate experiences for Rodney. Winner of the Samuel French Challenge Award for “Best Canadian Production” and a proven crowd pleaser.

OKLAHOMA! – Musical
January 18-27, 2018
Music by Richard Rodgers
Book & Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

 

DONE TO DEATH – Mystery / Comedy
April 5-14, 2018
By Fred Carmichael

Once famous mystery writers involve the audience as they apply their individual methods to solving various murders. They include a couple who write sophisticated murders, a young author of the James Bond school, a retired writer of the hard hitting method and an aging queen of the logical murder.
“Ingeniously packed into the script is a parody of every mystery plot, hero, and villain created in the past fifty years. The story alternates between reality and imagination as five mystery writers wrestle with the problem of writing a television mystery series. All around them murders occur.” – Glens Falls Post Star
“Carmichael plays a skillful and fast paced game of guess again with the audience…. Clever and rewarding.” – Bennington Banner
