Auditions Announced for IPAL Production of Neil Simon Comedy

IPAL's second show of the current season will be Neil Simon’s comedy “Last of the Red Hot Lovers.” The show requires four actors, one male (40 to 60 years of age), and three females, (20ish, 40ish and 50ish).   Audition dates at the Essanee Theatre in New Iberia are Sunday, August  13 from 1 to 3 p.m., and Monday, August 14 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  The auditions will involve cold readings from the script and those auditioning need not attend both dates. Performances will be Thursdays thru Sundays October 19-29, 2017. The show will be directed by Donald “Doc” Voorhies.

Set in the 60’s, the comedy tells the story of middle aged, married, overworked and overweight  Barney Cashman, who wants to join in the sexual revolution before it is too late. He arranges three seductions. The first is of middle aged Elaine Navazio who proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses. The second is of  Bobbi Michele, a 20ish actress wanna-be who is kooky and them some. Finally comes the seduction of Jeanette Fisher, a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend. Despite the many laughs, the ending is quite poignant for a Neil Simon play. According to director Don Voorhies “The play “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” seduces the audience with hilarity, and keeps them waiting for the next one-liner while seeing  the plot along. It will be as much fun for the cast as for the audience.”

People who are interested or have questions can contact the director at ipal@cox.net or by calling 337-364-1975 and leaving a name and return phone number.  Rehearsal dates will be subject to cast availability and will be flexible.

IPAL is supported in part by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Art Works!
