ABOUT THE PLAY
It’s the Swingin’ Sixties and the easily-confused Francis Henshall attempts to keep his two employers (local gangster Roscoe Crabbe and upper-class criminal Stanley Stubbers) from meeting and learning of his dual-employment. This Tony Award-winning comedy is a modern take on Goldoni’s classic comedy A Servant of Two Masters. It’s a laugh-out-loud satirical romp of slapstick and one-liners, with a live Beatles-era Liverpool band that keeps the party rockin’!

Breakdown of Roles:

Please note:  All roles are open. CSN supports and encourages diversity in all casting. CenterStage North Theatre is an All-Volunteer Theater troupe and we do not offer stipends.

CHARLIE ‘CHARLIE THE DUCK’ CLENCH: 50’s-60’s – a crafty Londoner who made good in the scrap merchant business.

PAULINE CLENCH: 20’s – Charlie’s ditzy, not-too-bright daughter, engaged (very recently!) to Alan.

HARRY DANGLE
: 50’s-60’s – Charlie’s crafty and crooked solicitor.

ALAN DANGLE: 20’s – Harry’s son, an aspiring actor given to dramatic poses. Engaged to Pauline.

DOLLY: 30-50’s – works as the bookkeeper for Charlie. Voluptuous, shrewd; out for a good time.

LLOYD BOATENG: 40’s – 50’s – a friend of Charlie’s, landlord of The Cricketer’s Arms. Scripted as a Jamaican; ideal for any non-Caucasian actor and can be nuanced accordingly; happy to cast a Caucasian actor too.

FRANCIS HENSHALL: 20’s – 50’s Needs to be energetic, dexterous and be able to improvise. Always hungry.  Clumsy innocence with an infectious grin.

RACHEL CRABBE: 20-30’s – the first Guvnor. Disguised as her deceased twin brother, so spends the play dressed as a fashionable young man.

STANLEY STUBBERS: 20-30’s – the second Guvnor. More than a touch of the upper-class twit. A criminal to boot – the murderer of Rachel’s brother.  Lounge lizard type.

ALFIE: the “elderly” waiter. Age indeterminate; the butt of physical humor; needs to be agile
