Auditions in Leander for Meanwhile Back on the Couch by Jack Sharkey, November 5

Way Off Broadway Community Players Leander TXWay Off Broadway Community Players will be holding open auditions on Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7pm for the zany, fast-paced farcical comedy, Meanwhile Back on the Couch by Jack Sharkey, which is being directed by Tracy Cathey. 

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. There are roles for 4 women and 4 men. We will schedule rehearsals around actors’ holiday plans as much as possible.

Meanwhile Back on the Couch Jack Sharkey Way Off Broadway Community PlayersAuditions are open to the public and will be held at Way Off Broadway Community Player's theater, located in the 2243 Business Park at 11880 West FM 2243, Leander, 1 mile west of Hwy. 183, just east of Bagdad Road (click for map). All interested parties are encouraged to audition.

Psychiatrist Victor is financially pressed between the rental of his posh office apartment and his fiancĂ©e’s expensive tastes. A colleague has written a best-selling case history book and is now rolling in royalties. Good friend Parker has rejected Victor's similar work because the public is tired of such things preferring torrid fiction. Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to love frustrations, is grinding out a rip roaring sex life. By mistake, Victor’s nurse gives the patient's manuscript to Parker, believing it to be Victor's work. Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection and a potential Pulitzer prize. When he discovers it’s his patient's confidences and not his casebook that has saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter. Another uproarious comedy by the author of Your Flake or Mine.
