TheatreWorks Holds Casting Call for Talk Radio January 3 and 4, 2011, 7:00 – 9:00pm
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (December 13, 2010) - TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking a cast of 6 men, ages 18 to 60 and 3 women, ages 25-50 for its 2011 season premiere – the terse and off-beat drama, TALK RADIO, by Eric Bogosian.
Barry Champlain, Cleveland’s controversial radio show host, is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the pathetic souls who call in the middle of the night to sound off. The most frightening thing? They love it. In fact, Barry’s show is so popular it’s about to go into national syndication, and his producer is afraid that Barry will say something that will offend the sponsors. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous. Disturbing, funny, moving, off-beat, and totally entrancing, TALK RADIO was adapted into a riveting film by director Oliver Stone and revived for Broadway audiences in 2007 – earning two Tony Award nominations.
Auditions will be held at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Ave., New Milford (next to the CVS) on Monday, January 3 and Tuesday, January 4 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
All auditioners will be asked to read from the script and should be prepared to show a broad range of voice intonations. TALK RADIO is under the direction of Susan Abrams. For more information and questions, auditioners may contact the Theatre at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 860-350-6863.
All roles are available and both professionals and amateurs are welcome. No appointments are necessary. TheatreWorks offers a stipend to all performers, technicians, and directors. For audition sides, character breakdowns, and directions, visit: WWW.THEATREWORKS.US/ACTORS.
