No preparation is necessary; audtioners will read scenes from the scripts.

Entry to the building will be through the old parochial school doors on Buffalo Street.

Auditions will be upstairs in FCT’s rehearsal space on the top floor of the school.

Simon’s hit comedy – which first ran on Broadway with 706 performances beginning in 1969 – tells the tale of Barney Cashman, a middle-aged man looking to join the sexual revolution before life leaves him behind and his futile attempts at seduction with three women.

The production is under the direction of Michael A. Bolio.

All roles are open.

Character descriptions are as follows:

Barney Cashman: A 47-year-old out-of-shape businessman who has led a quiet, unremarkable, “nice” life.

Elaine Navazio: A woman in her late 30s or early 40s. She is adventuresome, with an appetite for cigarettes, whiskey and other women’s husbands.

Bobbie Michele: A free-spirited actress in her 20s.

Jeanette Fisher: A woman closer to Barney’s age. In fact, she is the best friend of his wife, and a staunch moralist.

The production will go into rehearsals in mid September.

Actors will be given copies of the script in August.

The production will run at Tavern on the Lock Restaurant, 24 S. First St., on November 8, 9, 15 and 16.

“Last of the Red Hot Lovers” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.

Additionally, Fulton Community Theatre’s 2014 season is made possible in part through a Community Micro Grant from Entergy.
