Borderline Players to hold auditions for spring comedy

By newsroom

Auditions for Borderline Players’ premier production, Fuddy Meers, will take place on Saturday, January 27 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the First Universalist Parish Hall in Derby Line, Vt.
Performances are schedules for May 4-5-6 and 11-12-13, 2018 at the Haskell Opera House.
Written by American playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, Fuddy Meers tells the story of an amnesiac, Claire, who starts each morning with no memory, her husband and teenager having to fill her in daily about her life. When she is kidnapped, Claire – and the audience – must piece together the ensuing mayhem.
The Borderline Players’ production will be directed by Kim Prangley, a veteran of QNEK productions during the company’s 25-year run as the Haskell as the resident theater company, a tradition that continues in 2018 with the debut of the new community-based company.
Seven roles are available; 4 male and 3 female. They are Claire (about 40, generally sunny woman with amnesia); Richard (about 40, chatty, friendly, sometimes nervous man); Kenny (17, a troubled teen); limping man (about 40, a limping, lisping, half-blind, half-deaf man with secrets); Gertie (60s, a clear-headed lady who’s had a stroke); Millet (30s or 40s, an odd man with a puppet alter ego); and Heidi (30s or 40s, tough woman in a uniform).
No appointments are necessary for auditions, and scripts will be available at the hall.

Auditions for the summer and fall productions will be announced at a late date.
Borderline Players is a non-profit theater company registered in Vermont and Quebec, dedicated to producing memorable performances and creating opportunities for the community to participate in quality theater, both on stage and behind the scenes.
