HMT to Go Auditions for “The Beauty Queen of Leenane”

ANNOUNCING OPEN AUDITIONS for a summer production of Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy

Directed by Erin Nicole Harrington
Monday, April 29th from 6:00-8:00PM Wednesday, May 1st from 6:00-8:00PM

HMT to Go was founded in Home Made Theater‘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 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.

Character Breakdown – all ages are guidelines; those auditioning must be 18 or older

Maureen Folan (40): Plain, slim.

Mag Folan (70): Maureen?s mother. Stout, frail.

Pato Dooley (about 40): A good looking local man.
