Nana’s Naughty Knickers
Director: Emily Taylor
The production will open Friday, February 22nd and close March 17th, 2019. Performances will be at the Palace Playhouse.
About the Show: Bridget and her grandmother are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five-borough area! Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested – or worse – evicted?
Casting calls for 3 Men and 5 Females, while not looking to “gender bend” we are open to various interpretations. We are looking for people who can approach the ridiculous in a realistic way. We do not want caricatures or people who are “in” the jokes in the show. There is a certain amount of physical comedy involved, so the ability to lift up to 10 pounds, run and do choreographed object drops/falls is needed.
SYLVIA CHARLES – In her early eighties, living like she’s in her early twenties. The mastermind behind Saucy Slips, Etc., and the proud tenant of a rent-controlled apartment.
VERA WALTERS – Sylvia’s aged accomplice: equipped with two hearing aids and a collapsible walker.
BRIDGET CHARLES – Sylvia’s unsuspecting, 20-something, soon-to-be-law-student granddaughter.
TOM O’GRADY – The newest cop on the force, happily assigned the beat where Sylvia’s apartment is.
GIL SCHMIDT – The landlord, overly eager to rid himself of his aged tenants. 60’s.
HEATHER VAN PREE – Employee of Saucy Lips, looking for better opportunities, a modeling career, or just her boxes.
CLAIR – The big client. Mid 60’s.
VOICE – The man at the front desk. Slightly bored and always sarcastic. Can double as one of the UPS men.
UPS MAN – Cute and a little lonely.
OTHER UPS MAN – The strong and silent type. For doubling purposes, this could be the same actor that plays Heather, Clair or Mr. Schmidt, as long as the audience doesn’t recognize them as such.
