Bud the “Stud” gets his hands on some untested Venusia pills. He attempts to “entertain” three women! The gals swap Bud’s Viagra pills with the Venusia, and we soon discover that it has a strange affect on men.
Directed by Marlene Schoonmaker and Rick Bolstad

Available Roles:

Bud Davis (Age 70 plus) – The next-door neighbour to Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast.
He is weak, frail looking (The frailer the better), and appears at first glance to have “one foot in the
grave.” However, over the years, he has become renowned among the female guests as “Bud the Stud.”
He claims responsibility for the success of the bed and breakfast, believing all the females return year
after year to see him. He enchants all of them with his silver tongue and sexual prowess. (Very Elderly,
somewhat infirm, chauvinistic, brazen, but likeable).

Mrs. Stancliffe (Age 60 plus) – The owner of Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast. She is a severe woman
both in dress and manner. Precise in speech and punctuality, she gives the impression of efficiency and
competence. She is intolerant of Bud’s “Hanky-Panky” with her guests, but reluctantly has to agree he is
good for business. Pursued by her next-door neighbour Henry, she refuses to let him into her life, until
surprising events finally bring them together. (Sensible, practical, business like, menopausal, finally
radiant and sensuous)

Henry Mitchell (Age 60 plus) – A retired chemist and Mrs. Stancliffe’s “gentleman Caller.” He is a mild-
mannered man who has proposed to Mrs. Stancliffe every afternoon for 20 years. He is always the
perfect gentleman and shows a great deal of respect for all the women around him. He has developed
Venusia, a pill to increase the libido in menopausal women, but refuses to test it on moral grounds. Bud
calls him “A stick in the mud,” and he probably is, but eventually comes out of his shell. (Gentle, caring,
thoughtful, loveable.)

Victoria Ambrose (Age 50 plus) – Victoria is a renowned author who writes steamy romantic novels. She
pines for romance in her personal life, but finds none. Flattered at first by Bud’s attentions, she later see
him as the shallow, insincere Casanova that he really is and readily joins the plot to turn “Bud the Stud”
into “Bud the Dud.” (Pretty, serious, intelligent, menopausal.)

Hillary Hudson (Age 50 plus) – Hilary is a beautiful, well educated, articulate and sophisticated in both
manner and dress. She is an old friend and co-worker of Henry’s, who agrees to test the Venusia pills.
Initially skeptical of Bud’s attentions, she gradually warms towards him, but is it the Venusia or Bud’s
charms? (Elegant. Charming, best described as “A touch of class,” intelligent and menopausal)

Charmaine Beauregard (Age 50 plus) – Charmaine is the quintessential southern belle. She is definitely
here at Rose Cottage for “Bud the stud.” Of all people, she does not need Venusia, as her entire life
seems to be run by her overactive libido. However, she is a proud woman who will not be two-timed by
Bud, and becomes the leading light in the plot to tame him. (Voluptuous, out-going, gushing,
demonstrative, menopausal)
