Indoor / Outdoor

Sunday, March 8, 7 - 9 pm
Monday, March 9, 7 - 9 pm


Shuman (M), a bachelor who might be (believable) anywhere from late 20s to 40a.
Matilda (F), the vet receptionist who also plays Mama and a couple other roles, anywhere from 20s to 40-ish
Samantha (F), the cat who is adopted by Sherman (lead). This person should be teens - 30ish (believably young)
Oscar (M), Samantha's alley cat love interest who plays many other roles. Can be any age, but must be reasonably agile.

Ages are fluid because much rests on how the eventual cast plays off one another. The audience must believe that Sherman and Matilda could produce a child. Both Samantha and Oscar must be agile.

This show will be cast race-blind and each role is a potential tour-de-force!

The Show

In this unabashedly sentimental comedy, a cat named Samantha has just started living with a guy named Shuman who she believes is her true love. At first everything seems to be going great. Things become truly problematic when one night Oscar, a sexy alley cat, shows up at the door. Suddenly Samantha begins to wonder whether she's an indoor or an outdoor cat.


Audition Dates: Sunday March 8 and Monday March 9, 7 - 9 pm

Show Dates Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, May 1 - 17, 2020
