68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 19 - December 25, 1997 'Ruthless' auditions kick off Second Street Players' 1998 season Second Street Players will open the 1998 season with a state pre- miere of the musical "Ruthless" and auditions are set for Sunday, Jan. 4 and Tuesday, Jan. 6. Both auditions are at 7 p.m. in the play- ers' Riveffront Theatre. Director Eddie Cohee said that "Ruthless" is a surreal, campy, lit- tle musical that should please a wide range of audience members. He said the strong, tongue-in- cheek nod to movie stars and movies of the 1940s will amuse those who are fans of that era as well as those who just appreciate absurd, over-the-top entertain- ment. The plot features a child actor who sees herself as the next and only perfect person to play the lead in "Pippi Longstockings." When she is challenged by anoth- er precocious youngster, her com- petition is dispatched with haste and permanence. The mother of the child star is a too-sweet, Laura Petrie-type, '50s room. A shrewd Broadway agent and a shrewish theatre critic with a shadowy past complicate the scene as the child star climbs the ladder to success. The cast requires six to eight ac- tors, including one eight- to 12- year-old girl. The child should have some singing experience and some dance or movement training is preferable. The four adult female cast members needed are as follows: the child's mother, a soprano in her 30s; a theatre critic, an out- spoken Ethel Merman-type singer, late 30s to 50s; a theatrical assistant, versatile voice capable of singing jazz riffs, wide age range; and a teacher/reporter wth a Broadway-type voice, wide age range. There is also one walk-on, one- line role for a man. The female Broadway agent, Sylvia, is to be played by a male in woman's clothing. Cohee said he is looking for a man who will play the role as a woman and give the role a Bette Davis-Joan Crawford treatment. "This will be very mannered acting," Cohee said. "I recom- mend that my actors spend some time watching old movies. I w.ant them to have as much fun acting as I plan to have directing them." Cohee wants those who audi- tion to prepare a standard Broad- way tune, preferably one from a big musical of the 40s era rather than one from a more contempo- rary show. There will be cold readings from the script. A perusal script is available in the Milford Libary. The show dates of "Ruthless" are March 20, 21, 22, 27, 28 and 29. For information on the show or auditions, call 424-1805 or 422- 0220. Second Street Players River- front Theatre is at 2 S. Walnut St., downtown Milford. The commu- nity theatre group is supported in TreasureQuest to host artist open house Dec. 20 TreasureQuest Shoppe & Gallery will host an open house for artist Ellen Rice on Saturday, Dec. 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., when art lovers will have the op- portunity to meet the artist and have her sign her latest print, "Harbor Light." Also featured on display during the open house will be her work in progress titled, "The Last Watch." The painting shows the old Indian River Inlet Lifesaving Station as it appeared at the end of the last day before it was decommissioned as a U.S. Coast Guard station after the storm of 1962. Prints of the painting are scheduled for release in February. "Harbor Light" features a sunset over the water at the outer break- water lighthouse at Cape Hen- lopen. It is one of three limited- edition prints by the artist to date in her beach series, "Sea and Sky." The series also includes Rice's "The Quiet After the Storm," de- picting Indian River Inlet's view looking north over the inlet bridge, and "Soar!," which por- trays sunset over dune grass on the north side of the inlet, in the spot known to local suffers as "the cove." The artist is best known nation- ally for her work of history and art, titled "Treasure Beaches of the Mid-Atlantic," which will also be shown Dec. 20, in addition to a selection of Rice's other originals and prints. Rice's work is represented throughout the United States in more than 100 galleries, and her original paintings, pastels, pen and inks, and limited edition prints can be found in homes, of- rices and private collections in the United States and abroad. Light refreshments will be of- fered during the all-day event. Everyone is invited to come and meet the artist. TreasureQuest is located in the Country Wicker Shopping Vil- lage, about two miles west of the Bethany Beach totem pole on Route 26.
