Chester Theatre Group Holds Auditions For Mauritiu

(CHESTER, NJ) -- The Chester Theatre Group will be holding auditions for its May 2011 production of MAURITIUS on Sunday March 6th at 2:00 p.m. and on Tuesday, March 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the Black River Playhouse located at the corners of Grove Street and Maple Avenue in Chester, NJ. The production will be directed by Jay Mills and will have performances on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. beginning May 6, 2011 thru May 21, 2011.

Can a play about stamp collecting be called a comedic drama? Yes, in MAURITIUS by Theresa Rebeck, philately (stamp collecting), the quiet pursuit of dedicated older and younger enthusiasts isn’t as genteel as one might imagine. Add some questionable characters on the con and the plot thickens.

Readings will be from the script. Need are two female and three male actors – breakdown as follows:

2 females:
Jackie - late 20’s plus/Mary - late 30’s plus

3 males:
Philip - 35 plus/Dennis - late 20’s plus/Sterling - 40 plus

If you have any questions call Jay Mills, the director, at 973-627-6629. Also visit the CTG http://chestertheatregroup.org website.
