TheatreWorks Holds Casting Call for "The Irish Curse" January 9 & 10, 2012

NEW MILFORD, CONN. (December 19, 2011) – TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking a cast of 5 men, ages 20 to 55 for its debut production of the 2012 season, the scathing modern comedy THE IRISH CURSE by Martin Casella.

What "The Irish Curse" is – and how it manifests itself – is the raw centerpiece of this wicked, rollicking, and very funny new play. Size matters to a small group of Irish-American men who meet weekly in a Catholic church basement in New York City as part of a self-help group for guys who possess a certain anatomical "shortcoming." This alleged Irish trait is the focus of their weekly sessions as they all feel this "curse" has ruined their lives. THE IRISH CURSE is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity, male identity, and the relationships men must face each and every day of their lives.

Auditions will be held at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Ave., New Milford (next to the CVS) on Monday, January 9 and Tuesday, January 10 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

THE IRISH CURSE is under the direction of Robin Frome of New Milford.

For more information and questions, auditioners may contact the Theatre at or by calling 860-350-6863.

Auditions will consist of reading from the script. 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 character breakdowns and directions, visit:
