TheatreWorks Holds Casting Call for A.R. Gurney’s The Fourth Wall February 23 and 24, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (February 2, 2009) – TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking two men, ages 25-60, and two women, ages 40-55, for its spring comedy by “Sylvia” author A.R. Gurney, THE FOURTH WALL.
THE FOURTH WALL takes interior decorating to theatrical and hilarious new heights. Peggy, an idyllic upper-middle-class housewife who usually possesses exquisite taste, is overcome by a mysterious impulse to redecorate her living room as if it were a stage set. All who enter begin to behave as if they were acting in a play. Unable to cope any further, Peggy’s confused husband Roger summons an old friend, Julia, for comfort — and perhaps a bit more — as well as an aloof theatre professor who Roger hopes can “Doctor” Peggy’s play and bring it to a close, so Roger and Peggy can get on with their so-called “normal” lives.
THE FOURTH WALL is under the direction of Sonnie Osborne of New Milford.
The auditions will be held at TheatreWorks on Monday, February 23 and Tuesday, February 24, 2009 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
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, audition sides, and directions to the Theatre, visit: WWW.THEATREWORKS.US.
Rehearsals begin in March (usually Monday through Thursday evenings) with performances running from May 1 to May 23 on Fridays and Saturdays with a Sunday performance on May 17.
