Klondike Kalamity

MANSFIELD -- The Mansfield Playhouse has announced auditions for "Klondike Kalamity" on Nov. 11-12 at the 95 E. 3rd St. theater.

Auditions for the melodrama -- which has a cast of six men, three women and a bear -- will be by appointment only during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Klondike Kalamity" sets up as:

"The Great Yukon Blizzard of 1888 sets the scene for this hilarious romp over the fields of melodramatics. Included in the cast are: the fair and lovely maiden; the poor, crusty, but honest freelance lumberjack; the stalwart and heroic Mountie and a villain you will simply love to loathe!

"Add to their ranks a snow-blinded Inuit, a flapjack-filching bruin and one befuddled lass who keeps forgetting her identity (not to mention her sex!), and you have a madcap farce in the finest and funniest tradition of the melodrama.

"Will Fanduster T. Barrelbottom get away with his unmentionably nefarious scheme? Can our true-blue hero ever hope to clear his foully besmirched name? Is there a chance that the heroine may escape the sawmill blade?"
