Fort Bend Theatre, 2815 North Main Street, Stafford, be holding auditions for adults on Monday, September 17 and Wednesday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m for the classic comedy Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys.
The following roles are available:
- EDDIE, male, any age – the assistant director of a televised variety special on the history of comedy.*
- SKETCH PATIENT, any gender, any age – actor appearing as the “straight man” in the beginning of a televised sketch.*
- REGISTERED NURSE, female, 30’s – 60’s – A nurse who’s been there and done that. Willie’s antics roll off her like water off a duck’s back. This is not to say she doesn’t care about doing a good job; she’s simply not going to be thrown off her game by anyone. Calm and in control.
*The roles of both Eddie, and the Sketch Patient are ideal parts for individuals with limited experience onstage – those looking to get started in acting, or who have always wanted to “give it a try” would be well-suited for either part, which involves limited rehearsal obligations.
The roles of Willie Clark, Al Lewis, Ben, and the Sketch Nurse have been cast.

Performances are Friday & Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m., with two Sunday matinee performances at 3:00 p.m. on October 28 & November 4.
