This vintage Neil Simon Broadway comedy tells the story of a middle-aged seafood restaurateur named Barney Cashman. Barney is a moderately happily married man, but his friends convince him that his life will be even more satisfying if he has at least one extramarital affair. His awkward attempts at seduction net him an emotionally jaded sexpot, a young actress and a hopeless neurotic. The play features great comic roles for a leading man and three talented ladies.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of a crotchety Jewish widow named Daisy Wertham who has just demolished another car. Ignoring her protests, her son hires a driver for her, a black man named Hoke. At first, Daisy resents her new driver; but as the two get to know each other, they gradually realize that they have more in common than they ever would have thought. Great roles for a mature actress; a mature black actor; and a younger actor of 30-40.

This classic American comedy introduces us to the Sycamore family, led by the family's grandfather, Martin Vanderhof, who hasn't worked or paid taxes for the past 35 years. When his granddaughter falls in love with a member of New York's upper crust, his efforts to bridge the social gap are hindered by a zany carnival of eccentric friends, from a deposed Russian Countess to a fugitive postal worker. Suffice to say, this play offers 29 great character parts of every age and type!

This 1950's "blue collar" musical is set in the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory. It tells the story of the plant's new superintendent and his romantic attraction to the plant's (female) union representative. Unfortunately, they soon find themselves on opposite sides in a strike. But true love triumphs in a fun-filled play which features such popular standards as "Hey, There," "Hernando's Hideaway" and "There Once Was a Man." The show features great character roles along with the classic Bob Fosse number, "Steam Heat!".

DOUBT recounts the conflict between a young priest who teaches at a Catholic School and the nun who is his principal. When a nave young teacher commends the priest's interest in a young black student, the principal questions the nature of his interest. Is it spiritual? Or could it be sexual? This Pulitzer Prize-winning play offers great roles for one actor and three actresses: one young and nave, one older, and a black actress to play the mother of the student.

All Auditions begin at 7:30 PM at The Delray Beach Playhouse. For information, check out website at or call The Playhouse Box Office at (561) 272-1281 Ext. 4.
