Wonder of the World is a hilarious, wild and crazy ensemble comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers). When Cass discovers a dirty little secret in her husband’s sweater drawer, it is so shocking that she has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world, Niagara Falls, in a frantic search for the life that she thinks she missed out on. Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of amateur private detectives, and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter and an unusual collection of Barbie dolls. The show is traditionally performed with 4 women (one of whom plays 6 roles, but this may be divided for this production) and 3 men. Auditioners can drop in for either audition session, and do not need to prepare material but should bring calendars to indicate conflicts with potential rehearsal dates.
Characters for “WONDER OF THE WORLD”:
- Cass Harris – a young woman, full of spirit, anxious to start a new life
- Kip Harris – Cass’s devoted but clueless husband with a dark secret
- Lois Coleman – a little older than Cass, an alcoholic who plans to go over the Falls in a barrel
- Karla – a semi-retired woman who dabbles as a private investigator; sensible, organized, mission-driven
- Glen – Karla’s husband, also a dabbler in the P.I. business, has A.D.D. and not very good at his job
- Captain Mike – charming, but lonely, captain of the Maid of the Mist tour boat
- The remaining 6 roles are traditionally played by one actress but may be divided for this production:
- Barbara (a happy tourist)
- Helicopter Pilot
- 3 Waitresses at different theme restaurants
- Janie – a psychologist/therapist who also works as a birthday party clown, very professional and business-like, no-nonsense, insightful
