In a stylishly converted French Farmhouse, Bernard is hoping to entertain his chic, Parisian mistress, Suzy, for the weekend. He having arranged for a cordon bleu cook, Suzette, to furnish the gourmet delights, is in the process of packing his wife, Jacqueline, off to her mother, and has even invited along his best friend Robert as a suitable alibi. It’s foolproof, what could possibly go wrong…? Well, supposing Robert turns up without knowing why he’s been invited? Say, Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers?

Mix all these ingredients and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed!”

Show runs Oct 10 thru Nov 11; Fri/Sat 8pm & Sun 3pm. Be available for ALL shows. Directed by: Ronnie Green / Musical Director: Carl Hottinger / Choreographer: Kristen Digilio. We’re back in 1958, and it’s time for the Wonderettes to graduate in this delightful sequel to the smash off-Broadway hit! Join Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy as they sing about their final year in high school, celebrate with their fellow classmates and teachers, and prepare for their next step toward a bright future. Moving ahead to 1968, the girls perform as bride and bridesmaids to celebrate Missy’s marriage to Mr. Lee! Featuring “Rock Around the Clock,” “At the Hop,” “Dancing in the Street,” “River Deep, Mountain High,” and 25 more hits. Looking to Cast:
BETTY JEAN is the self-anointed class clown of the group, always vying for attention from her best friend Cindy Lou. She loves boy humor, and is probably the most physically fit out of all the girls—or at least the most ‘sporty. Betty Jean has a loving heart that is easy to break, as we see in act two. (Alto with strong low range.)
CINDY LOU knows she is the prettiest girl at Springfield High. Her ongoing rivalry with best friend Betty Jean bursts forth throughout their performance, threatening to derail the planned activities of their Graduation Day. Cindy Lou would be considered the ‘bad girl,’ or ‘mean girl’ of the group, but truly has a hidden heart of gold that shines through in act two. (Mezzo Soprano with belt–sings lead on many songs.)
MISSY is the over-achiever of the group. She is always ready to cover for mistakes and jump in and save the day. She has been best friends with Suzy since elementary school. Missy’s hidden heart-throb is teacher Mr. Lee, whom she finally weds in act two. (Soprano with wide range and very high vocals.)
SUZY is the gum-chewing, happy-go-lucky, go-along girl. Suzy is always a little giddy and a little silly, and finds great pleasure in everything she does. Slightly ditzy, act one finds Suzy flunking out of her elective Library class for electing not to go, but finally receives her GED in act two. Her best friend is Missy. (Mezzo Alto with a sweet, soulful sound and big belts.)

Long Island Housing Services, Inc., a non-profit agency that serves our community by advocating fair housing is looking to hire per diem employees to help with our Fair Lending Investigations. We have found that actors have the best skills for this position as they are able to memorize a script and follow directions. The title of the position is a tester. A tester will be paid $17/hr and compensated for both training and travel to assignments. www.Lifairhousing.org
LIHS is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunity in housing on Long Island. LIHS is dedicated to:
· Eliminating unlawful housing discrimination
· Encouraging the development of low income and affordable housing
· Promoting open, accessible and inclusive communities
· Facilitating and strengthening enforcement of Fair Housing laws
· Educating and assisting the public regarding housing rights and opportunities in the region.
LIHS’ activities include:
· Fair housing investigations (rental, sales, insurance and lending)
· Testing and advocacy to facilitate enforcement and compliance
· Public and private industry education
LIHS offers the following additional services:
· Landlord/Tenant counseling and referrals
· Mortgage default/foreclosure prevention counseling and legal services
· Pre/Post purchase counseling
· Loan Scam and Loan Modification Rescue Scam education and reporting
FAIR LENDING TESTING PROGRAM
· LIHS recruits and trains individuals to be testers that will help gather information about current market and industry practices. Fair housing laws protect everyone from unlawful housing discrimination. Through its testing program, LIHS’ ability to investigate real estate-related transactions and practices (rentals, sales, insurance and lending) and aid with the enforcement of local, state, and federal fair housing laws is enhanced significantly. Testing (aka investigation) is an investigative tool used to gather evidence. Generally, fair housing testing refers to the use of individuals who, without a bona fide [genuine] intent to rent or purchase a home, apartment or other dwelling, or without a bona fide intent to apply for a mortgage loan, pose as prospective renters and purchasers of real estate or borrowers for the purpose of gathering information which may indicate whether a housing provider or lender is complying with fair housing and lending laws. In essence, testers would be going ’undercover’ like mystery shoppers to lending institutions and pretending to be applying for mortgages with the financial information we provide them. The tester then writes a report about how they were treated by the bank and what loan options the bank offered them. We use those reports to see if any discrimination has occurred. Courts have found testing to be persuasive evidence and sometimes the only credible or competent evidence available to corroborate an allegation of housing or lending discrimination. This type of investigation has been used since the Civil Rights Era and is a completely legal and credible form of investigation.
