*“Sex Please, We’re Sixty” Auditions Sunday and Monday (2/17 & 2/18) *
Among the Charlotte Players’ most popular productions, “Sex Please, We’re
Sixty,” returns to the Langdon Playhouse this April. Auditions for this
hilarious farce will take place on Sunday, Feb. 17, and Monday, Feb. 18, at
the Charlotte Players Community Theater Center, 1100 Market Circle, Port
Charlotte. Director Jessie Reter-Choate will be seeing actors at 7 p.m.
Reter-Choate is seeking four women and two men for characters ranging in
age from 50 to 80. The comedy is set at Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed
& Breakfast, which has been successful for many years, with her mostly
female guests returning year after year. Her next-door neighbor, the
elderly, silver-tongued, Bud “Bud the Stud” Davis, believes they come to
spend time with him in romantic liaisons, which the prim and proper Mrs.
Stancliffe steadfastly denies.
The proprietor’s other neighbor and would-be suitor, Henry Mitchell, is a
retired chemist who has developed a blue pill called “Venusia” to increase
the libido of menopausal women. When the untested pill gets mixed up with Bud’s Viagra, strange things happen.
Authors Michael and Susan Parker are Florida playwrights whose works share suggestive titles, such as “The Sensuous Senator,” “There’s a Burglar in My Bed,” and “Whose Wives are They Anyway?” The plays combine familiar British farce situations with an American setting featuring over the top, bawdy, nonsensical plots, and like “Sex Please, We’re Sixty,” provide audiences a great deal of fun.
