Auditions: email director Joe Bruton if interested

Location:  Congregation Beth Israel, 2195 Eastern Pkwy, Schenectady, NY 

SUMMARY: The semi-autobiographical, riotous account of stage-struck young David Kolowitz working as a delivery man in a sewing machine factory. Denying his parent’s wishes to be a druggist, he leaves their dreams and his devoted girlfriend Wanda behind and is soon enlisted (and paying for) a slot as the “leading man” in a third-rate theatrical company while being seduced by the resident leading lady, the daughter of the hammy artistic director. His first time on stage is a hilarious, terrible performance where everything that can go wrong, does.
