The Florentine Players announce auditions for their upcoming show in August. This fantastic farcical comedy is sure to be a crowd pleaser and will be extraordinarily fun for the cast and crew as well.
Engaged! by W. S. Gilbert – “As one character pledges his love, in the most poetic and romantic language possible, to every single woman in the play; the innocent Scottish rustics are revealed to be making a living through throwing trains off the lines and then charging the passengers for services, and, in general, romance is gladly thrown over in favor of monetary gain.” – Unknown reviewer from the show’s original run.
Directed by Molly Anderson, this show calls for 5 men and 5 women. 2 Women and 1 Man will need to have a Scottish accent if possible (the accent is written into the script and can be coached if needed).
Audition pieces are attached – see attachments (below).

We will likely have a read thru shortly after casting and then resume rehearsals after July 4th. This will give the cast a chance to get familiar with their roles. Rehearsal commitment until Sunday, August 9 will be no more than 3 rehearsals per week. Crew volunteers are strongly encouraged as well.
