United Methodist Church in Thief River Falls–116 Horace Avenue North
The Curious Savage
This show is for adults age 18 and above.
Directed by Gretchen Weinrich email@example.com
Synopsis: The Curious Savage, written by John Patrick, is a comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, an elderly woman whose husband recently died and left her approximately ten million dollars. Contrasting the kindness and loyalty of psychiatric patients with the avarice and vanity of “respectable” public figures, it calls into question conventional definitions of sanity while lampooning celebrity culture. The play was first produced in New York by the Theatre Guild and Lewis & Young at the Martin Beck Theatre and opened October 24, 1950, with Lillian Gish in the role of Ethel. Peter Glenville directed the production.
Be prepared to read selections from the show.

SYNOPSIS: This is a one-hour adaptation of ANYTHING GOES that is a wacky shipboard farce featuring romance, intrigue, colorful characters and a glorious score from Cole Porter. Highlights include: “You’re The Top,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Friendship,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” and the title number.
BILLY CROCKER is the show’s leading young man with stars in his eyes and a sweet, earnest disposition. He gets in a ton of trouble in pursuit of love.
RENO SWEENEY is the show’s leading lady. She is foremost an entertainer and can command attention just by walking through the door. Reno enjoys the spotlight and easily makes friends with everyone she meets.
Reno’s four ANGELS are a pack of ladies with the vocal and dance stylings to back up Reno. Entertainers by profession, the Angels are filled to the brim with talent, sass, and charisma.
MRS. EVANGELINE HARCOURT is Hope’s overbearing mother who truly wants the best for her daughter and herself, and she will go to whatever lengths necessary to make sure she doesn’t end up poor.
HOPE HARCOURT is the perfect mixture of poise and properness befitting her upper class status. While she does care about her place in society, love is what motivates her in the long run.
LORD EVELYN OAKLEIGH is a British gentleman betrothed to Hope Harcourt. He may come off a bit stiff, but underneath this proper exterior is a generous man looking for excitement. He is very much a character!
MOONFACE MARTIN is a gangster who is on the run (as usual). Moonface may not be the smartest person in the world, but when he commits to an idea, he sticks to it.
ERMA is Moonface Martin’s partner in crime. Erma is certainly not intimidated by Moonface’s gangster reputation.
The show features many OTHER CHARACTERS aboard the ship. It is full of vivid characters, including featured PASSENGERS, REPORTERS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, FBI AGENTS 2 and more.
You will be asked to read dialogue during your audition. Here are script samples:
