Sidekick Players is auditioning again. This time it’s for the second production of the season, Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley, directed by Cathy Collis.
Outside Mullingar is about the romance of Anthony and Rosemary, neighbours in rural Ireland who are nearing their middle years. The production is poetic, uplifting, dark, and funny as hell. Anthony is an introverted farmer and Rosemary is the woman who vows to have him at all costs. When Anthony's father threatens to disinherit his son, Rosemary steps into the middle of a land feud and family eccentricities beyond what one might imagine.
The cast requirements are two women and two men.
Characters are, Rosemary Muldoon, age 30s to 50s, Anthony Reilly, age 30s to 50s, Aoife Muldoon age 60s to 70s and Tony Reilly, age 60s to 70s. Irish accents are required for all cast members.
Auditions will be held Monday, Oct. 24 and Tuesday, Oct. 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Tsawwassen Arts Centre. Auditions will be in person and a cold reading from sides of the script. Scripts are available at the Vancouver Library for perusal.
If interested in auditioning, please send resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Mullingar'.
This is a community theatre production and all work involved would be on a voluntary basis.
Rehearsals will be Tuesday evening/Thursday evening/Sunday afternoon, starting Nov 8. There will be a short break over Christmas, with rehearsals starting again Jan 3.
Outside Mullingar will be performed at The Tsawwasen Arts Centre from Jan. 26, 2023 to Feb. 11.
