AUDITION NOTICE:  One Man Two Guvnors

Brighton, England: 1963. Change is in the air, and Francis Henshall is looking to make his mark. Fired from a skiffle band and in search of work, he finds himself employed by small-time gangster Roscoe Crabbe, in town to collect a fee from his fiancee's gangster father. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother, herself in love with Stanley Stubbers (her brother's killer) who, in turn, becomes our hero's other 'guvnor'. Fighting a mounting sense of confusion, Francis goes out of his way to serve both bosses. But with the distractions of a pneumatic book keeper, a self-important actor and select members of the criminal fraternity (not to mention his own mammoth appetite) to contend with, how long can Francis keep his two guvnors apart? Richard Bean's hilarious comedy received 5-star reviews from every London newspaper and was the hit of the 2012 Broadway season.

Auditions are Sunday, April 9th 6:30pm-9:00pm and Monday April 10th 6:30pm-9:00pm at the theatre. If you are auditioning for a part which requires singing, please prepare a song in the Broadway musical style (2 minutes or less). Auditions will also be comprised of readings from the script. Questions?  Please email Director Trina Williamson at

Character Descriptions (NOTE: “ages” listed for each character are “stage” ages, not actual age)

Francis Henshall​ (Male, 20s-30s) An Essex boy driven by his stomach. A bit rough around the edges, but very charming and lovable. ​Brilliant physical and verbal comedian​. Sings.​

Rachel Crabbe ​(Female, 20s-30s) London girl from a criminal family. Sharp and quick-witted, driven by her real love for Stanley. The breeches part. Cockney accent (not too strong).   

Stanley Stubbers ​(Male, 20s-30s) A posh public-school boy. Has a very dirty sense of humor, but is still charming and generally decent. Utterly confident and steeped in the arrogance of the upper classes. Sings.

Charlie “the Duck” Clench ​(Male, 50s-60s) Pauline’s father. Small-time London gangster. Streetwise, but not intelligent. Weasely, shifty, spiv-like. ​Not used to being disobeyed. ​Cockney accent. Doesn’t sing.

Dolly ​(Female, 20s-40s) Charlie’s ​busty feminist bookkeeper​. Smart and sassy, very sexy and very funny – but not dumb. Northern accent. Must sing. ​

Pauline Clench ​(Female, 20s-30s) Young, pretty, full of life, very stupid. In love with Alan. Has a broad Cockney accent. Despite being dumb and occasionally shrill, she should be – somehow – appealing. Must sing. ​

Alan Dangle ​(Male, 20s-30s) Young aspiring actor ​given to dramatic poses ​with little common sense. Engaged to Pauline. ​Hot-headed and passionate, but ineffective. Middle-class London accent. Sings a bit.

Harry Dangle ​(Male, 40s-60s) The stereotypical fat crooked lawyer, quoting Latin ad infinitum. Loquacious, bombastic and blustery. Posh RP accent, which occasionally dips into Cockney. Must sing. ​

Lloyd Boateng ​(Male, 40s-50s) A London/Jamaican ex-con and friend to Charlie Clench​. Wise and sanguine owner of a pub. Strong Caribbean accent. Gregarious, loyal, warm. Doesn’t really sing. ​

Alfie ​(Male, 80s) The slow and doddering “elderly” waiter ​played by a younger actor. ​Must be able, willing, and ready to do several prat falls and engage in extremely difficult, choreographed physical comedy.

Gareth ​(Male, 30s-50s) Supercilious, efficient head waiter. Physically adept – helps out with quite a lot of “business”. RP accent. Doesn’t sing. ​May be double cast as ensemble.

Ensemble​  A few actors may be cast as an old woman, a taxi driver, police officers, etc.
