Lead Role at DayTrippers Dinner Theatre

Seeking the role of JOHNNY in the play Bermuda Avenue Triangle by Joseph Bologna and Renee Taylor. Johnny is a lead role in the play. He is an elderly, suave gambler. Dresses elegantly and is a compulsive liar.  He is charming and persuasive  as both our leading ladies in the play fall in love with him.  Johnny is lovable and has a big heart in spite of his difficulties with the truth.  The actor's age can vary, but realistically I'm looking for someone in the 50-70 age range.
