25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee — August 12, 2022
Summer 2022 Musical — April 25, 2022

Summer 2022 Musical

This year, The Allegan Community Players are excited to present, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!

“An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.”

Auditions will be announced soon here and on our Facebook page as well as the character list and more information!

Allegan Community Players Presents: Leading Ladies! — October 6, 2019

Allegan Community Players Presents: Leading Ladies!

Allegan Community Players Fall production this year will be Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig. In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.

Here is a quick breakdown of the characters :

Meg Snider: Local girl, vivacious, warm, great sense of Humor. Has unfulfilled dreams of the great big world outside of central Pennsylvania she has yet to experience. (Age: Early 30’s)

Duncan Wooley: Local minister, engaged to Meg. A good man, but fussy, headstrong, egocentric. (Age: Early 40’s)

Doc Myers: Local doctor, Chief Moose, likeable curmudgeon, boisterous, stockey, father to Butch.
(Age: Mid 50’s)

Leo Clark: A clean shaven, Shakespeare actor from England (yes, English accent required), marginally gifted, charming yet mildly pompous, prone to temper tantrums, longs to achieve stardom… (Age: Early 40’s)

Jack Gable: A clean shaven, Shakespeare actor from England (yes, English accent required), Leo’s partner, easily dragged into Leo’s harebrained schemes (think Ethel to Leo’s Lucy), nice guy, longs to settle down…
(Age: Late 30’s to Early 40’s)

Audrey: Well built, extremely sweet and good-natured, an “intelligent airhead.” Audrey roller-skates. The director would most likely be really impressed if auditioners showed up with their own roller skates prepared to dazzle. (Age: 20)

Butch Myers: A little slow on the uptake, built like he played high school football, sincere, good-hearted.
(Age: Early 20’s)

Florence Snider: An extremely crusty, terrible eyesight, wealthy, wily, aliling… or hypochondriac?
(Age: 60+)

Auditions were held on October 2nd and 3rd, but we will be having a third round of Auditions on October 9th from 6pm-8pm at the Griswold Auditorium in Allegan! Our current need is for 2 males who would be interested in playing the roles of Jack Gable and Butch Myers!
