The Local Actors Guild of Saratoga is looking for 3 male actors and 1
female actress for their March production of the regional premiere of
“My Big Gay Italian Wedding”
As the weather in upstate New York grows cold, what could warm hearts more
than an Italian wedding complete with Brooklynese, big hair and big drama?
How about an eccentric, escapist, from the heart play called MY BIG GAY
ITALIAN WEDDING? Anthony Pinnunziato has proposed to Andrew Polinski, and
Andrew has accepted. Being from an Italian family, Anthony finds that he
must have a big, traditional wedding. Mom and Pop Pinnunziato, having
accepted Anthony’s sexuality, are not ready to walk him down the aisle
unless a few conditions are met. Mom wants the local Catholic priest to
perform the service, and for Andrew’s mother to come up from Florida to
give her blessing in person. Those are just the first two plot
complications in MY BIG GAY ITALIAN WEDDING. We also meet Anthony’s
"Broadway star" sister, bickering lesbians (Connie and Lucia) who used to
date, a jilted gigolo who wants nothing more than to spoil the nuptials, a
local guy in search of a date, a casino gambling Aunt and an over-the-top
Set before the Gay Marriage Bill was passed in New York this play proves to
be one hell of a laugh fest!
Performances are Saturdays March 17th & 24th at 2pm & 8pm and Sundays March
18th & 25th at 8pm
Rehearsals start February 5th and are Sunday, Monday & Wednesday nights in
For information or to be considered please e-mail
localactorsguid at gmail.cominclude resume and head-shot if you have one.
THE PARTS ARE LISTED BELOW WITH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION
Maurizio Legrande – Late 20’s-40’s. Outlandishly dressed, over the top,
flamboyant wedding coordinator. He has an accent that cannot be pegged down.
Connie – Lucia’s nemesis. Just as pretty, but much tougher. The gum chewing
mouth of a truck driver who doesn’t take crap from anyone. Lesbian.
Joseph Pinnunziato/Father Rosalia – Late 40’s. Joseph is Anthony’s loud
Italian father whose word is law and whose home is his castle. Father
Rosalia is the crush of every parishioner, both male and female. Tries hard
to resist the temptations of flesh, both male and female.
Frankie – Late 20’s-30’. Tough, good-looking Italian stud. No-nonsense, out
and proud. The straight acting gay guy in the bunch.
