Director Annette Forsythe will be looking to fill the roles of 2 males and 4 females for this hilarious comedy about Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast, the neighbors, the almost always female guests, and the mix up of Viagra pills and the untested “Venusia” pills.
BUD DAVIS – age 70 +; the next-door neighbor to Mrs. Stancliffes’ Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; weak, frail looking (the frailer the better), however, over the years, he has become renowned among the female guests as “Bud the Stud;” very elderly, somewhat infirm, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable.
MRS. STANCLIFFE – age 60 +; the owner of Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast; a severe woman both in dress and manner; pursued by her next door neighbor, Henry; sensible, practical, punctual, business like, menopausal, but finally radiant and sensuous.
HENRY MITCHELL – age 60+; a retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe’s “Gentleman Caller;” a mild mannered man who has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for twenty years; has developed Venusia; eventually comes out of his shell.
VICTORIA AMBROSE – age 50+; a renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels; pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none; readily joins the plot to turn “Bud the Stud” into “Bud the Dud;” pretty, serious, intelligent, menopausal.
HILLARY HUDSON – age 50+; beautiful, well educated, articulate, and sophisticated in both manner and dress; old friend and co-worker of Henry’s, who agrees to test the “Venusia” pills; elegant, charming, and menopausal.
CHARMAINE BEAUREGARD – age 50+; the quintessential southern belle; definitely here at Rose Cottage for Bud and becomes the leading light in the plot to tame him; voluptuous, out-going, gushing, demonstrative, menopausal.
