CASTING NOTICE! OPEN AUDITIONS!
St. Albert Dinner Theatre presents:
By David Lassig
in special arrangement with Heuer Publishing
Directed by Rob Beeston
This is the story of Jane, who stands to inherit a small fortune. All Jane needs to collect her inheritance is get married and wait six months. That was six months ago. Once the lawyer drops by to deliver the documents, she and her husband will live happily ever after. Everything is set to go off without a hitch, and by suppertime, Jane should be rich.
That is…IF she were actually married.
That is…IF her “husband” Tom shows up on time, and IF she can get rid of her best friend (and Tom’s real wife) Claire, her ex-boyfriend Paul, the lawyer, and a police officer who keeps stopping by unannounced.
Yes, the whole plan should still work out as long she can keep everyone away from her mother. (Oh…Didn’t we mention that Jane’s mother has stopped by, and could ruin everything?)
As it stands right now, it looks as if Jane and Tom are just…Barely Heirs.
