The Stage Company Announces

Open Auditions For Almost Identical

Written and Directed by Vincent Rhomberg

The romantic comedy Almost Identical is a funny and fast-moving farce that tells the story of twins, one gay and one straight, who accidentally begin to inhabit each other’s lives, a development that builds a hilarious house of cards – a house that comes crashing down on all involved. But in the midst of it all they also learn acceptance and find love!

Venue:  The Varsity Center, 418 South Illinois Avenue, Carbondale, IL

Auditions – February 19 & 20, callbacks February 21, 6:30-9 P.M.

Auditions will be held in the Gallery Room of The Varsity Center.

Performance dates: April 13-15 & 19-22


Parts for 3 men and 1 woman

PETER GEMINI* – Paul’s straight twin brother, successful, self-assured, self-centered, playboy, embarrassed by his brother’s “lifestyle.”
BOBBY – Paul’s slightly campy gay friend, reasonably practical, kind, quick wit.
