Madame Buttermilk tells the story of Carly Speranza and her lifelong dream to sing the lead role in the opera “Carmen.” She mistakenly signs a contract to sing with the country band, the “Car Men” at a gig at the West Virginia State Fair! In the process, she reconnects with her high school sweetheart, who changed his name and has become a big country star.

Madame Buttermilk was written by Ross Carter of Louisville, Kentucky and is an award winning play that enjoyed its debut at the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia just before Covid.

Roles are available for four men and four women. All but one of the roles are singing roles. (One of the women has laryngitis and doesn’t speak, but uses demonstrative hand signals.) There is also a band onstage, with minimal speaking roles.

Please bring a prepared song and be prepared to cold read from the script. If you have any further questions, please call Director Keith Smith at Hudson Town Hall, (828)728-8272.
