The Sunshine Boys-Role Breakdown

An affectionate and hilarious look back at the golden age of vaudeville, Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys is the story of Lewis and Clark, two longtime comedy partners whose career and friendship came to a sudden and acrimonious end. After a decade of estrangement, Clark’s nephew persuades the former duo to resurrect their most famous routine for a TV special on the history of comedy. High jinks ensue as the cantankerous coots try to work together despite their longtime feud.

Actors booked for an audition time slot will be asked to prepare an appropriate monologue no longer than 3 minutes in length. Callbacks will be held on Saturday June 29 beginning at 10AM.

The Sunshine Boys will open on November 21 and run through December 15, 2013. Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays are 8PM shows. Sundays are 3PM matinees. Rehearsals will begin in October. All performers in the production will receive a stipend of $300 (flat) for the run of the show. (Travel stipends available for those travelling great distances.)

*Sorry, at this point we are unable to work with equity performers.

The Los Altos Civic Center is located at 97 Hillview Ave Los Altos CA 94022.
