Yankee Tavern
by Steven Dietz
Directed by Kit Colbourn

Performances: March 2 at 8pm & March 3 at 2pm

Auditions: Sunday, January 13,  2019 (2pm – 5pm)

The second production in our new CP2 Reader’s Theatre program. It’s 2006, people are still dealing with the physical and emotional fallout from 9/11. The “Yankee Tavern” is an old neighborhood joint in lower Manhattan, a place that was hopping in the forties, now doling out its final shots before the crash of the wrecking ball. Adam is the proprietor, his buddy Ray the barkeep. The occasional quiet stranger drops in, but they generally have the place to themselves. The jukebox died on September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am, when the first plane hit the World Trade Center… Ray’s reflexive conspiracy theories drive the conversation, but take on an air of legitimacy as the play unfolds.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
8-10 rehearsals.

Palmer – a man, forties

Together We Can Tell Great Stories! Thank you for your support!

Theatre plays an indispensable role.

It offers the opportunity to come together, to laugh, to think, to create conversation, and to recognize ourselves in the stories of others. Great theatre and great storytelling are necessary to us as human beings — as important as oxygen. It reminds us we are a community. 

For more than sixty years, County Players has provided experiences that entertain, inspire, empower and captivate. Our mission is to inspire a lifelong engagement with the performing arts and the theatre. We aspire to keep theatre alive for present and future audiences, and create memorable moments for each member of our community. 

We cannot do this on ticket sales alone.

Only 60% of our total cost is covered by subscriptions and single ticket purchases. The rest is made possible by contributions from loyal supporters, like you, who are passionate about the value of County Players.

Your generosity provides the foundation on which we stand, dream and create. Thanks for your support.

When the biggest highlight in your life has been your weekly bridge night with the “girls”, what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game and the resulting wild, exciting night involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living.

“The Golden Girls meets Steel Magnolias” ~ Jay Handelman, Sarasota Herald Tribune

Sponsored by Swartz Architecture, Inc & Lawrence J. Paggi PC

Rachel Ann Harland (20’s) – A little uptight, high strung.  A young woman who seems to have issues with life and men until bridge night opens her eyes

Connie Harland (50’s – 60’s) – Responsible, strong and stable. Mother of Rachel, who finds on this fateful bridge night that life doesn’t end at after 50.

Leona (50’s – 60’s) – Fun and quick witted. One of Connie’s closest friends and a member of the bridge club for over 30 years. A woman who’s a beautician by profession and a rather caustic lush by preference.

Millie (50’s – 60’s) – Innocent and good natured. Another of Connie’s friends and a long-standing member of the bridge club. This is a woman who moves to her own special drummer, even though she’s the only one who can hear him.

Bobby / Policeman(20’s) – Intelligent, good looking and must be comfortable performing a strip tease.

All interested actors should prepare a 1 to 2-minute monologue, either dramatic or comedic.
