Auditions for "Cookin' With Gus'

Friday, January 5, 2018

Pierre Players will hold auditions for the comedy "Cookin' With Gus' by Jim Brochu on Monday, March 5, 2018, 7 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for two males and two females.“Cookin’ With Gus” brings together four unlikely characters in a stew of hijinks and hilarity.

Gussie Richardson is a famous food columnist and cookbook author. Her agent comes to tell her she’s been offered her own daily network television show. She wants to do it, but her boyfriend, Walter, is dead set against it, and Gussie discovers she has stage fright and can’t open her mouth in front of a camera. Everybody tries to help her get over it . . . Walter through hypnotism, Bernie her agent by threats; and even wacky Gypsy Carmen from next door casts spells. Just when she thinks she's cured, the taping turns into a comic nightmare concluding in an all out food fight that almost ends the show and her relationship.

Show dates are April 27-29 and May 3-5, 2018, with a preview performance on April 25, 2018.
