TheatreWorks New Milford Holds Additional Casting Call for TW Stage 2 "RENT" Sunday, June 13 from 1:00 - 4:00 and Monday, June 14 from 6:00 - 9:00
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (June 8, 2010) TheatreWorks New Milford will be holding a special audition for MALES AGES 14 to 18 ONLY on Sunday, June 13 from 1:00 - 4:00 and Monday, June 14 from 6:00 - 9:00.
Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer-prize winning Broadway musical based loosely on Puccini's opera La Bohème follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York's East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel; Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part.
This adaptation has been carefully done, working with the Larson estate to retain the dramatic intent of the groundbreaking rock musical, and consists of minimal changes to language and the removal of one song (CONTACT) to make it possible for many schools to perform this piece.
