“Caught in the Net” is the sequel to Ray Cooney's classic farce “Run For Your Wife”, about the British taxi driver who tries to keep each of his two wives happy and clueless about the other wife. 18 years later, the son by one wife "meets" the daughter of the other wife on the internet and they discover they may share something in common when they learn their dads' names and jobs are the same. “Caught in the Net” is a 21st century twist on the old theme of the wandering husband.
The show is directed by Margot McCann with Martin Smith assisting. Matt Parker is the technical director. Lighting and sound are done by Margaret Meinke and Michelle Bailey, with Lisa Meyer in props. The cast features Lenny Kromer as Gavin, Rebecca McDaniels as Barbara, Martin Smith as John, Cassandra Warren as Vicki, Alison Sauvey as Mary, Jayson Rohde as Stanley and Matt Parker as Dad.
Playmakers also announce an open audition notice for a cast of 8-18 adults, evenly split. “Almost Maine”, written by John Cariani, takes place on a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter. All is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hove r in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend, almost, in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
Co-directors are Brenda MacDonald(419-356-6805) & Steve Wetzel. Auditions are Oct. 28 & 29 at Playmakers Civic Theatre at 7 p.m. Production dates are Jan. 10-13 and 17-20.
