TheatreWorks New Milford Holds Casting Call for Ken Ludwig's 'Leading Ladies' July 13 & 14

NEW MILFORD , CONN. (June 24, 2015) – TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking a cast of 3 women (ages 20 to 80) and 5 men (ages 20 to 65) for its fall production of Ken Ludwig's hilarious farce, LEADING LADIES.

From the author of Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo comes LEADING LADIES, an outrageous new comedy. Jack and Leo are two English Shakespearean actors who are so down on their luck, they are reduced to performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. But when they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces and, in the tradition of any Ken Ludwig farce, absolute hilarity ensues.

Auditions will be held at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Ave., New Milford (next to the CVS) on Monday, July 13 and Tuesday, July 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

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, to download audition sides, and to get more info, visit:
