Miles: Intense young producer at the BBC; if he wasn’t so neurotic, he’d be a nice guy Leslie: snobby BBC announcer, a la George Sanders; Loathes cowboy songs Clive: Radio personality - THE “Saltey’s Fish ‘n’ Chips Man”; considers himself a great “h’act-or” Mabel: Tex’s Tour Manager; Behind-the-scenes wallflower; once she steps up, she blossoms Stan: sound effects man; like Buster Keaston, this shell shocked vet is a man of few words. Description: Whoa, Britannia! Panic at the BBC! The year is 1944, America’s favorite singing cowboy, Tex Riley and his troupe are late for a special broadcast at the BBC in London. Out of desperation, Mabel, their tour manager, and Miles, the frantic young producer, grab whomever they can—a snobby announcer, an amiable sound man, and a passing soap opera actor—slap them into costume, hand them scripts (after all, it’s radio!) and shove them in front of the studio audience. The resulting performance is one England will never forget. Please submit headshot and resume to email@example.com to schedule an audition time. Sides will be provided. Please prepare 12 bars of a Country Western tune.
