Perfect Arrangement

by Topher Payne
directed by Ann Lowe-Barrett
produced by William Powell

1950, the era of the Red Scare and strict traditional values. In Washington, D.C., two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been ordered to identify sexual deviants in their office. But Bob and Norma are gay and have married each other's partners as a ruse. Based on the nascent days of the American Gay Rights movement, this compelling drama offers laughs and lessons as two patriotic couples take on both the mores of their time and the closet door.

Note: This show features adult themes and language.

With: Jonathan Meeker, Ronda Ansted, Susan Harper, Win Britt, Janice Coffey, Bob Singer, Joy Gerst

Due to the snow last week, additional Auditions for the world premier production of The Honey Trap, written and directed by by Michael C. Stepowany, will be held at the theater on Monday January 21, with callbacks on Tuesday January 22 at 7:00 PM.

Auditions will include cold readings from the script. Please provide a resumé and a headshot (if you have one) and have your conflicts handy.

A small 4th of July, 1957, "watch the atom bomb" party is gathering in a Las Vegas hotel room. Against the background of the "Rat Pack" and their music, The Honey Trap is a door slamming comedy. Just as the party begins, an F.B.I. agent arrives, chaos ensues, and the lives of everyone are forever altered.

Cast of characters:

Mid to late 20's, African-American female. A showgirl for the hotel-casino. Feisty and fierce. Flo has dreams of being a ballerina, or at least a headliner in a Casino show.
Late 20's early 30's, Asian Female. F.B.I. Agent. Diminuitive, but forthright and serious about her position. MK (Mary Katherine) is investigating the Colonel and his secretary.
Mid to late 20's, Latino male. A bell boy for the hotel-casino. Mortimer has a thick Mexican accent. He is in love with Flo. He has inherited his fathers ranch in New Mexico, but is loyal to his job. He occasionally speaks Spanish. He also occasionally uses both an Edward G. Robinson, and a James Cagney voice.
Colonel Brooks
Late 40's, male. A recently retired Air Force Colonel. Corrupt through and through. Bombastic. Loves the freedom the military and its uncounted millions offer him.
Mid to late 20's, female. Colonel Brooks' Secretary. Sexy, seductive. She is in reality a Russian Spy. Lana speaks in act one with an American Southern accent and act two in a Russian accent. She appears in lingerie during the play.
Late 40's, female. The Colonel's wife. Overbearing and outspoken. A proud daughter of a Senator. She has pulled herself up from a simple life to become the wife of an internationally important military man. She takes full advantage of the perks afforded her.

Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, weekends if needed, more often as tech and opening get closer.

Performances are weekends April 26 - May 12. All roles are open and unpaid.
