The Adobe Theater
Ken Ludwig’s “LEADING LADIES”
Directed by Lewis Hauser
Meg Snider: (Early 30’s) She’s vivacious, with enormous warmth and a great sense of humor. She also has the fresh, unstudied, beauty that most women would kill for. She knows there’s a big world outside of York, PA but she hasn’t seen much of it yet.
Audrey: (20’s) She is extremely sweet and good-natured. The typical “girl-next-door”, cute but approachable. Likes to roller skate.
Florence: (70’s) Very old, extremely crusty, and her eyesight is terrible. Always on the verge of death’s door, but keeping him at bay.
Leo Clark: (Early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Leading man type, good looking, easy with a smile(and the ladies!) Shakespearian trained, but working the Moose Lodge circuit to make ends meet.
Jack Gable:(Late 30’s to early 40’s) (Accent: Standard British) Jack is Leo’s best friend and partner. They’ve been working the Moose Lodge circuit for so long, he’s ready to pack it in and settle down.
Duncan Wooley: (50’s) Local minister and substantially older then Meg (they are engaged). He’s a good man at heart, but rather fussy, set in his ways, a bit scatterbrained, and lives in his own world.
Doc Myers: (50’s) Doc is a crusty, likeable curmudgeon; a country doctor who takes no gruff from anybody.
Butch Myers (20’s) Butch is a little slow on the uptake, but earnest and sincere, with a good heart. He played football in high school-pretty much his claim to fame. (Son of Doc, in love with Audrey).
The play takes place in and around York, PA. The year is 1952.
