TheatreWorks Holds Casting Call for Moonlight and Magnolias February 4 and 5, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (January 10, 2008) TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking three men and one woman for its upcoming production of the funny and fast-paced comedy, MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS, by Ron Hutchinson.
Movie producer David O. Selznick has just shut down production on the troubled set of his film Gone With The Wind and locked himself in his office with screenwriter Ben Hecht and director Victor Fleming to rewrite the script because shooting begins in a week and no script exists. This hilarious and fascinating behind-the-scenes story of cinematic history comes to life as the three creative forces clash and compromise for five days straight, wrestling over every detail, from the shape of the plantation pillars to Rhett Butlers famous final words to Scarlett OHara. MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS is under the direction of Sonnie Osborne of New Milford.
The auditions will be held at TheatreWorks on Monday, February 4 and Tuesday, February 5, 2008 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The call is seeking a cast aged between 30 and 55.
All roles are available and both professionals and amateurs are welcome. The audition will consist of readings from the script. No appointments are necessary. TheatreWorks offers a stipend to all performers, technicians, and directors. For character breakdowns and directions visit: www.theatreworks.us.
Rehearsals begin in late February (usually Monday through Thursday evenings) with performances running from April 18 through May 10 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday, May 4.
TheatreWorks is an award-winning, non-Equity theatre company located on 5 Brookside Avenue, just off Route 202 (next to the CVS), in New Milford, Conn.
