Auditions for the two characters listed below will be readings from the script. Both characters speak the Queen’s English.
SIR PERCIVAL EVERARD CRUMPWORTH (“CRUMPET”). Bertie’s pal, a love struck and poverty-stricken peer, two conditions that do not mix well. He may have committed murder. Or not. The details are a bit dim, as is Crumpet. He masquerades as Alfred Crumoworth (“Alfred of Africa”), Crumpet’s long-lost twin brother, who is everything Crumpet wishes he could be: debonair, dashing and devilishly attractive to women.
LADY STELLA VANDERLEY, a mischievous heiress who delights in stirring up trouble, just for the fun of it. She adores toying with her many lovelorn suitors. Bertie is quite smitten with her, being as she is such a lively girl. Jeeves has his doubts.
Bertie Wooster revels in life aboard a yacht as the pampered guest of the lively Lady Stella, accompanied, as always, by his peerless valet, Jeeves. But soon our hapless hero is masquerading as a romance novelist, his pal Crumpet’s posing as his own long-lost twin, and a sinister foreign count is challenging Bertie to a duel. Will this mayhem of mistaken identities end in Bertie’s doom – or, even worse, marriage? Have no fear; Jeeves will sort it out.
