Audition for “The Sunshine Boys” @ York Central School
Dec 16 @ 7:00 pm

The winter show for Geneseo Community Players is THE SUNSHINE BOYS by legendary comedy writer Neil Simon! The play centers around two retired vaudville performers who worked together for over forty years, but haven’t spoken in over a decade. Will they reunite for one last performance or will old disagreements keep them apart? The script is clever, fun and absolutely hilarious!

Auditions for THE SUNSHINE BOYS will be held at York Central School on Monday, December 16 at 7:00 PM. Nothing to prepare ahead of time.
