The unscrupulous Rip Roquefort makes a bad living cheating at cards. He lives at the Virginia City Hotel but pays no rent because the landlady, Jenny Flutterpearl, thinks he’s in love with her. Jenny doesn’t realize that the miserable servant she’s hired to wash and scrub is actually the villain’s wife, Comatose. Things get even more interesting for Roquefort with the arrival of Auntie Em, her niece Little Jane Dovetonsil and the crafty Judge Lynch. Seems the villain’s uncle has left him a fortune — “if” he marries Little Jane within twenty-four hours. Little Jane knows nothing of all this. If she finds out about the will the money goes to “The Judge Lynch Foundation for Near-Sighted Albanians.” Roquefort arranges an “accident” for Comatose (it backfires) and urges a former partner in crime, Bathsheba Pickles, to sidetrack the local deputy, Merton Manly. Complications build to a hilarious slow motion finale!
Auditions will be held Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 4pm, at the WOBCP Theatre for the following roles:
