Leading Ladies – Ken Ludwig’s 2004, hilarious farce about two down-on-their-luck actors who, so desperate to make a buck, plot to pass themselves off as two, long lost relatives of a dying, well to do woman so they can cash in on inheritance money. The only trouble is that they find out the long lost relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements and family hi-jinx ensue, as the actors put on dresses and makeup and try to con the family into believing that their intent is pure. The play takes place in and around York, PA. The year is 1952.

Performances will run from January 17 – February 9, 2020.

FEMALE CHARACTERS:

Meg Snider: (Early 30’s) She’s vivacious, with enormous warmth and a great sense of humor. She also has the fresh, unstudied, beauty that most women would kill for. She knows there’s a big world outside of York, PA but she hasn’t seen much of it yet.

Audrey: (20’s) She is extremely sweet and good-natured. The typical “girl-next-door”, cute but approachable. Likes to roller skate.

Florence: (70’s) Very old, extremely crusty, and her eyesight is terrible. Always on the verge of death’s door, but keeping him at bay.

MALE CHARACTERS:

Leo Clark: (Early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Leading man type, good looking, easy with a smile(and the ladies!) Shakespearian trained, but working the Moose Lodge circuit to make ends meet.

Jack Gable:(Late 30’s to early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Jack is Leo’s best friend and partner. They’ve been working the Moose Lodge circuit for so long, he’s ready to pack it in and settle down.

Duncan Wooley: (50’s) Local minister and substantially older than Meg (they are engaged). He’s a good man at heart, but rather fussy, set in his ways, a bit scatterbrained, and lives in his own world.

Doc Myers: (50’s) Doc is a crusty, likeable curmudgeon; a country doctor who takes no gruff from anybody.

Butch Myers (20’s) Butch is a little slow on the uptake, but earnest and sincere, with a good heart. He played football in high school-pretty much his claim to fame. (Son of Doc, in love with Audrey).
