We are looking for:
Cast and Crew for RFA’s Winter Production of “We’re Alright” A Juke Box Musical 2020-2022, An RFA Original.
ACT 1: Old man and his wife own a fur shop in Chicago. They want to retire to the south. Various people come into their shop to salivate over, touch, try on, berate the furs. Angela wants to sell her gorgeous fur (from Larry) to finance a vacation to Italy. Tiffany comes in with Larry to buy a beautiful fur of her own. Stephan drags Charlene in to help him buy a fur. Charlene is NOT into it at all. Kyle sees Stephan. (ping!) Jayne comes in to trade in her grandmother’s fur for a fur of her own. Moonbeam protests the fur shop on the sidewalk outside. Jayne and Moonbeam argue the merits of fur. Moonbeam eventually throws red paint (ribbons) all over Jayne’s coat.
ACT 2: Kyle visits the fur shop often. Jayne returns and buys a new coat and goes out and sees Moonbeam, who is out on bail with a new more peaceful protest. Jayne forgives her and gets behind her new protest. Stephan returns, buys a fur and meets Kyle. Charlene reconnects with Angela, her best friend from high school. Charlene & Angela decide to go to Italy together. Stephan & Kyle both love fur. Stephan looks at the fur shop as an investment. Kyle agrees to manage the shop with Stephan’s financing. They develop a new market. Everyone celebrates! Problems/conflicts: Fur has fallen out of favor, BUT. Leather is okay. Hamburgers are flying out of fast-food joints. Why is warm and cuddly fur bad? Don't plants cry? Fur is organic, recycle-able, upcycled, reused, lo-fat, sugar-free, gluten-free etc. Faux fur is polyester, a PETROLEUM PRODUCT!!! Horrors! Multiple interpersonal conflicts mostly resolved peacefully. Amazing! Larry vs. ex-wife Angela vs. new wife Tiffany. Mabel and Sidney want to sell the shop and retire, but no buyers. Moonbeam has mental health issues, emotionally supported by her parents Sidney and Mabel.
SET: Black box set, minimal walls. Most of the center stage is the fur shop with a long rack of coats across the back at a slight diagonal, a mannequin SR, a counter display case with cash register SL, and a nice waiting chair DSL. Far stage left is the antique shop suggested by a nice desk & lamp in front and behind that stacked nice antiques. There should be shop signs suspended above. The stage right is street area for action with USR exit being the street to coffee shop. The front 4-5 ft of the stage is the street where people meet and cross. Exits: DSL & DSR are streets; There are exits at the back of the fur shop and the antique shop.
