Meet the Cast & Crew of One Man, Two Guvnors

One Man, Two Guvnors
By Richard Bean / Directed by Roger Carr
January 20 – February 4, 2017

One Man, Two Guvnors sets the characters and situation in Brighton, England in 1963 and is a slapstick romp with elements of Commedia, slapstick, farce and vaudeville. Accents at auditions would be delightful and help is at hand. We do have a skiffle band in the show and they perform numerous songs. The cast will also sing one or two numbers but this singing is incidental to the acting and won’t be part of the audition.
