AUDITIONS FOR "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg"

Chatham Community Players’ (CCP) Fantasy Theater, the Theater for Young Audiences branch of CCP, is pleased to announce auditions for “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg” by Stacy Lane. This play is based on one of Aesop’s best known fables, this clever story is told from the perspective of a poor farmer’s wife named Gretchen. For additional information about the play/script, please visit Pioneer Drama Service -

Auditions will be held on Monday, October 13 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at The Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Ave., Chatham and Thursday, October 16 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at The Chatham Library, 214 Main St., Chatham. Production dates are January 10 - 11, 2015.

We are looking for a multi-generational cast ages 10 and up to play the 16+ characters. Those auditioning will be asked to read from sides. Eric Holgerson will be directing. Rehearsals will begin in late October.


Gretchen – (25-45) Poor and greedy farm lady, very self-centered. Actress should be able to be physical on stage.

Wendell – Young traveler who is very determined.

George – (25-45) Gretchen’s husband. He is the complete opposite of Gretchen. The voice of reason.

Golda : (any age) overwhelmed by what is going on around her/him. Not quite sure why any of this is happening.

The Chickens – : (Any Age) (Scrambled, Omelet, Poached, Benedict , and Sunny Side Up) Each has his or her own personality. Sarcastic, worried, in awe, and just not with it somewhat describes this group. I am looking for a group of people who have great timing and can work well together.

All Merchants – (25+) (Millie, Jewel, Percy, Colby, Umberto and Taylor) very street wise and ready to pull one over on the least suspecting person. They could be played very “down and dirty”.

Orella – (17-30 female, part could double with one of the merchants) Golden Fairy. Looking to play her strait up fairy like a “Glenda” type.

Townspeople – These characters have no lines and will be chosen as needed.

This version is an ensemble piece and most of the parts can be played by someone of any age or gender. Those determinations will be made during the audition and casting process.

The Chatham Players have an open call casting policy. ALL roles are open, none are precast, and everyone is encouraged to audition. Any questions, please contact Maybelle Lincoln at For directions or additional information, please visit
