SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater announces open auditions for their HMT to Go production of Martin McDonaugh’s THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE, directed by Erin Nicole Harrington. Auditions will be held on Monday, April 29th and Wednesday, May 1st from 6:00-8:00pm at the Spa Little Theater in Saratoga Spa State Park. Callbacks will be held Wednesday May 1st following the open auditions.
This Tony Award-winning dark comedy is set in the provincial Irish town of Leenane. Forty-year-old Maureen Folan lives with her manipulative, aging mother Mag, stuck in a caretaking relationship that has them both seething with resentment. When a romantic encounter finally sparks Maureen’s hopes for an escape from her dreary existence, Mag’s interference sets a chain of events in motion that is as tragically funny as it is terrifying.
HMT to Go was founded in HMT’s 11th season as a touring troupe that brought educational and entertaining material to schools. In honor of their 35th season, HMT to Go is being reinvented to bring live theater to new audiences by performing in venues other than HMT’s home at the Spa Little Theater.
This HMT to Go production will be performed at Caffé Lena on Sunday, August 4th, with performances at 3:00 and 7:00pm. For a detailed flyer with character descriptions and more audition information, visit www.HomeMadeTheater.org, or call (518) 587-4427.
