Audition Description

In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg, who's engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there's a wide world out there, but it's not until she meets "Maxine and Stephanie" that she finally gets a taste of it.

  • Role #1 - Meg Snider

    A young woman who dreams of a bigger world beyond York PA, Meg is vivacious, warm, loyal, and has a great sense of humor. She loves Shakespeare and dreams about being an actor. During the play, Meg becomes a self-confident woman.

I landed my first role... I would like to thank Explore Talent for everything they have done on my behalf. This is by far the easiest and most efficent way to look for jobs. I have landed my first role in an upcoming movie featuring Wendy Williams, Lil' Kim and Vanessa Williams. I have also landed a second role in an independent film shooting in October. Finally I am also up for a new web sitcom. I could not have acheived this much success in so little time without Explore Talent. Thanks again. - Ishmael Blue
