Fawlty Towers

By John Cleese and Connie Booth

Directed by John Baiocchi

The plots center around tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty, his bossy wife Sybil, a comparatively normal chambermaid Polly, and hapless Spanish waiter Manuel and their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests.

The Fawlty Towers episodes written by John Cleese and Connie Booth will be “Basil the Rat”, “The Germans” and “Kipper and the Corpse”.

Auditions will be held on the following days:


Theatre Unchained will hold auditions for the Milwaukee premiere of the hit musical “SPAMALOT” and three more hilarious episodes of the popular BBC sitcom “FAWLTY TOWERS” on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 9 & 10 from 7pm to 10pm. Callbacks will be on Thursday, July 11 from 7pm to 10pm. “SPAMALOT” will perform September 6 – 22(possible Extension) and “Fawlty Towers” will run October 11 – November 10(possible extension). Rehearsals for both shows will be primarily weekday evenings, some weekends. Please prepare a short monologue and bring a headshot and resume if you have one. If you do not have a monologue, be prepared to read from sides of the script. If you are auditioning for “Spamalot”, please prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Also, be prepared to dance. You may audition for both shows, if you desire, and potentially be cast in both shows. Rehearsals for "Spamalot" will begin on Monday, July 15. Rehearsals for "Fawlty Towers" will begin on September 9. The rehearsals will not overlap. To schedule an audition or if you have questions, please email James at theatreunchained@yahoo.com or call (414) 391-7145. If you do not wish to schedule an audition, you may show up and wait for an open slot. Theatre Unchained is located at 1024 S. 5th Street in Milwaukee. Two minutes from Downtown in the Walkers Point district!

The Fawlty Towers episodes written by John Cleese and Connie Booth will be “Basil the Rat”, “The Germans” and “Kipper and the Corpse”. The main characters will play the same role in all three episodes and the ensemble will double and triple roles throughout. A few roles have already been cast.

FYI, Fawlty Towers is back by popular demand. We produced three episodes last year to sold out houses throughout and an extended run. Not to mention, It's a whole lot of fun!
