Males Order Bride

Males Order Bride

An unscrupulous and shifty lawyer has hired a talented and equally shifty actress to impersonate four different women, in order to marry a quartet of love-starved local bachelors. The husbands-to-be include a lumberjack, a saloon owner, a grizzled prospector and a banker. The scheme is to complete the vows, get rid of the poor quartet of suckers, leaving our actress a wealthy widow to all four. Pity those unassuming gentlemen! Will the evil plan be foiled?

The Producers

The Producers

Based on the 1968 film and written by Mel Brooks, this deliciously offensive musical is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its debut. Fading Broadway producer Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Bloom, who hypothesizes that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will somehow raise two million dollars to finance the show, and then plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance! Full of wild characters, glitzy showgirls and in your face comedy, you’re absolutely sure to have a gay time. Not for the easily offended, this show makes a great date night out that will be full of laughs.

Max Bialystock

Age 40 to 55. The consummate con man. Naturally animated and bombastic, he is never at a loss for charm and manners. Typically conspires with Leo.

Leo Bloom

Age 35-45. An accountant. Boring and mousy, he is a hesitant optimist who longs for something more. Dragged into a scheme by Max.

Franz Liebkind

Age 35 to 55. German loyalist playwright. From his lederhosen to his pigeon, Adolph, his love for the motherland is unmistakable. He is imposing yet tender.

Roger DeBris

Age 50-60. New York’s most famous and flamboyant stage director. Surrounds himself with deliciously beautiful clothing, people, and possessions. In a crowd, it would be impossible to miss him.

Carmen Ghia

Age 25-35. Roger Debris’ faithful assistant. Carmen is severe in looks and passion for Roger. He may appear younger than he actually is thanks to skilled surgeons.

Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yonsen Tallen-Hallen Svaden-Svanson

Age 20-30. A young and hopeful actress. Though her beauty might eclipse her talent, Ulla is passionate about life and art. Quite a clueless seductress in some ways.

Ensemble of men and women this show will keep you busy!

Accountants, Bavarian Peasants, Convicts, First Nighters, Little Old Ladies, Storm Troopers, Chorus Girls, Girl Prisoners, Usherettes.

Believe in Christmas - Calling You Home

Believe In Christmas - Calling You Home

Several decades ago, the big ticket holiday event would have included cozying up in front of the TV to watch a fun Christmas Variety show. The best of these had an undeniable charm that you just can’t find in the holiday programming of today. We recommend taking a break during this hectic season. Have a hot chocolate from our saloon (add some schnapps, after all- it’s Christmas!) bring the entire family and join us for a beautiful, nostalgic evening, as we welcome you home to GCT.

Performances: November 29 – December 22 2024

Auditions: September 7 2024, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Director: James Mierkey

First Rehearsal: September 16 2024
