Don Comedy Mask to Audition for SBCC’s ‘One Man Two Guvnors’

The Theatre Group at SBCC will hold open auditions for the comedy One Man Two Guvnors on June 13 and 14 by appointment in the Jurkowitz Theatre. Call-backs will be June 19; rehearsals begin Aug. 28. Performances are Oct. 11-28 in the Garvin Theatre.

Roles are available for three women and eight men. Written by Richard Bean, with music by Grant Olding, One Man Two Guvnors will be directed by Rick Mokler.

The story is about out-of-work skiffle player Francis Henshall who becomes separately employed by two men: Roscoe Crabbe, a gangster, and Stanley Stubbers, an upper-class twit.

Francis tries to keep the two from meeting, in order to avoid each of them learning that he is working for someone else.

Complicating events, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise; her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her boyfriend, who is none other than Stanley.

Complicating events even further is local mobster Charlie the Duck, who has arranged his daughter Pauline's engagement to Roscoe despite her preference for over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle.

More complications are prompted by several letters, a very heavy trunk, several unlucky audience volunteers, an extremely elderly waiter and Francis' pursuit of his twin passions: Dolly, Charlie's feminist bookkeeper, and food.

The play features 11 songs played live by a skiffle band (think rockabilly) that will be made up by members of the cast.

Different songs will feature different cast members. Not everyone will have a solo, but every cast member must sing in a group and hold harmonies. The ability to play a musical instrument is an advantage but not a necessity.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
