The Sherman Playhouse Holds Casting Call for
Of Mice and Men
July 17 & 18, 2012
SHERMAN, CONN. (July 3, 2012) – The Sherman Playhouse is seeking a cast of nine men, ages 20 to 60, with one being African Americanand one woman, age 20 to 30 for its fall production of John Steinbeck’s epic drama OF MICE AND MEN.
This outstanding play by John Steinbeck was first produced in 1937 and captures the mood of the country in the Depression era. George and Lennie are drifters looking for work as farmhands. They dream of one day having enough “jack” to “have a little house, a couple of acres, and live off the fat of the land.” George protects Lennie, a gentle giant who does not know his own strength. Lennie’s strength gets him into situations that keep them moving from town to town, one step ahead of the law. Finally, George must make a moral decision to protect Lennie one last time. The climax is as startling as it is unforgettable.
All auditions will be held at The Sherman Playhouse, 5 Route 39 North (next to the fire station), in Sherman, CT on Tuesday, July 17 and Wednesday, July 18 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
