Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its production of Rumors, by Neil Simon, and directed by Erin Chanfrau.

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 9th and Monday, July 10th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be set between the times of 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm-10:00pm on Monday. Callbacks will be held on Wednesday, July 12th.

Rumors is an uproariously hilarious comedy about lies, deceit and rumors. At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the deputy mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
5 women/5 men
All ethnicities welcome to audition

Chris Gorman (Female): Tense publishing lawyer trying to kick the cigarette habit; a bundle of nerves gamely trying to cope with the ever increasing stress of the situation with wisecracks, lying, and alcohol.

Ken Gorman (Male): A lawyer fiercely protective of his client and friend, Charley; his early arrival at the party puts him at the heart of the frantic attempts to control the situation.

Claire Ganz (Female): Lenny’s high-society, acid-tongued wife who seems to be in on the latest rumors; does her level best to keep up with the goings on.

Lenny Ganz (Male): A short-tempered accountant with a whiplash injury; the poor, put-upon guy just isn’t having a good day, even before the party starts.

Cookie Cusack (Female): A loopy, yet amiable, TV cooking show host, who’s having major back spasms; very quirky and often the last to grasp what is going on.

Ernie Cusack (Male): A laid-back and clueless psychologist, comfortable in his own skin.

Cassie Cooper (Female): A high-maintenance trophy wife, vain and insecure, convinced her husband is having at least one affair.

Glen Cooper (Male): A self-protective, somewhat exasperated, “aspiring” state senator.

Officer Welch (Male): No-nonsense and not easily tricked police officer; seen and heard it all

Officer Pudney (Female): Welch’s younger partner
