TheatreWorks Holds Casting Call for Theresa Rebeck’s 'Mauritius' Monday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 13, 2010 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (March 22, 2010) – TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking three men ages 22-55, and two women, ages 22-45, for its upcoming sinister and sharp-witted drama, MAURITIUS, by Theresa Rebeck.
The stakes are high when half-sisters inherit a book of rare stamps that may include the “crown jewels” of the stamp-collecting world and could be worth millions. The battle for possession takes a dangerous turn when three rival collectors enter the sisters’ universe, willing to go to any lengths to stake their claim on the find. Combining the most thrilling aspects of Alfred Hitchcock, Raymond Chandler, and David Mamet, Mauritius is a gripping blend of sharp comedy and heart-pounding drama that simmers with constant surprise.
MAURITIUS is under the direction of Sonnie Osborne of New Milford.
The auditions will be held at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Avenue, New Milford, CT, on Monday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 13, 2010 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m
