Butterfield plans to kick off its 2014-2015 season with the popular comedy, “Queen of Bingo.”
Auditions will be held at 7 p.m., Friday Aug. 15 in the Butterfield Studio Theater located in lower level at 201 S. Denton St. in Gainesville.
Three parts are available – two females ranging in age from 40’s to 70’s and one male of any age. If you cannot make the Friday night audition, contact Butterfield Production Director Sandy Guyer at 940-634-2134 to schedule a private audition.
“Queen of Bingo” asks where can two sisters on the other side of fifty, who want to add a little zest, fun and excitement to their lives, find it? Bingo! On any Bingo night at St. Joseph's. They dish the dirt, giggle like school girls and share old memories. Sis and Babe are sisters and best friends. They’ve been coming to play Bingo together for years because they love it. Sis is a good loser who just loves to play and is content in her widowhood.. Babe is a player who has always got to win and is still looking for love.
They complement each other in ways only sisters can and they drive each other crazy in that same sisterly fashion. On this particular night, Babe and Sis share something new as they each confesses a secret and finds a special kind of redemption. The play, written by Jeanne Michels and Phyllis Murphy was originally produced in Chicago’s Buckingham Theater before its nationwide tour.
The 2014-2015 Butterfield Season presents five Main Stage productions including “A Gentleman and a Scoundrel,” “Mystery Night,” “Any Wednesday” and the season ending musical – “Bye Bye Birdie.”
