CVP holds Open Auditions for our productions, meaning they are open to anyone 18 yrs and older. No experience is required! CVP accepts both novice and experienced actors, and we provide a fun, casual and non-judgmental atmosphere. CVP is a non-equity community theatre that thrives on volunteers from the local community. CVP membership ($35/year) is required for everyone in a production.

Auditions consist of readings from selected scenes, called “cuts” or “sides”; scripts/sides will be provided at the audition. Actors may attend one or both nights of auditions. Contact the director for an audition form, a copy of the script, or if you need to schedule an alternate audition time/date.

 

Auditions are held at The Depot Theatre, 4861 White Lake Rd., Clarkston MI 48348

 

COVID Protocols: Because the health and safety of our members is our first priority, CVP has adopted a temporary policy requiring all volunteers, cast and crew to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or able to provide a doctor’s note if there is a medical reason you cannot be vaccinated.

Synopsis:

To Sylvie it’s the “goose” that she learned from Alistair, but to Philip, Joanna Markham’s husband, it’s “a variety of geese,” and fifteen years of marriage is just about undone along with everything else in this wild zany free for all. Everything from Philip’s business deals with Bow Wow Books and Alistair’s near escape from Joanna’s chiding seduction to the naked G.P.O. girl and the specter of scandal is hilarious. A lot of bedhopping occurs as Sylvie winds up taking Alistair on “walkies” and the amazing Mrs. Markham gets her man! It all takes place in an elegant top floor London flat.

 

Characters:

Alistair Spenlow – London’s latest fashionable interior designer. Underneath his slightly arty exterior lurks a virile male.
 
Joanna Markham – Phillip’s attractive and sophisticated wife.
 
Phillip Markham – Joanna’s husband. He is studious, with a worried air.
 
Linda Lodge – Joanna’s best friend. She is very vivacious but slightly scatter-brained.
 
Henry Lodge – The best friend’s philandering husband – successful, rakish and full of masculine confidence.
 
Sylvie – The Swiss au pair girl, attractive woman who speaks English with hardly any accent.
 
Olive Harriet Smyth – The Upper-crust, proper book authoress.
 
Walter Pangbourne – Something of a milquetoast – possible affair of Linda.
 
Felicity Jane Wilkinson – The young and attractive telephone operator.
