"An Ideal Husband" by Oscar Wilde

June 24 -26; July 1-3; 9-11


May 6: 7-9 pm Waitsfield Church, Rte 100 Waitsfield

May 9: 2-4 pm The Valley Players Theater

An Ideal Husband might be Oscar Wilde's most complete theatrical production. It has all of the wit and charm of The Importance of "Being Earnest," but offers a deeper story about the price of success, marital expectations, and forgiveness. The audience will enjoy clever dialog, period costumes, and a glimpse into the late days of Victorian high society.

We will cast six women and six to nine men, stage ages 25-65. Auditioners will read from the script and are encouraged to utilize an upper class English accent.

These are a few of the roles:
Sir Robert Chiltern, Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs - The Ideal Husband, who is hiding a dishonorable secret from his adoring wife.
Lady Chiltern, wife to Sir Robert Chiltern - She has put her husband on a pedestal, at great cost to both.
Mrs. Cheveley, Lady Chiltern's former schoolmate, who has discovered Sir Chiltern's secret and plans to work it to her advantage.
Lord Goring, friend and confidant of Lady and Sir Chiltern.
The Earl of Caversham - the frustrated father of Lord Goring, who wishes to see his son give up the life of an idle pleasure seeker
Miss Mabel Chiltern, Sir Robert Chiltern's sister, romantically interested in Lord Goring.
Show dates will be the weekends of June 24-26 and July 1-3, with a possible additional shows on July 9-11. Show times TBA.

The script is available to read for free via Project Gutenburg, at

Scripts are also available for reading at the Joslin, Warren and Waterbury Libraries.
