Auditions Announced for VAS YOU EVER IN ZINZINNATI PADDY? at Irish American Theater Company

IATC_logoThe Irish American Theater Company (IATC) will hold auditions for their up and coming fall musical VAS YOU EVER IN ZINZINNATI PADDY? on June 19th & 20th and June 26th – 28th by appointment only.

This is a New Musical written by William H.A. Williams award winning playwright of “Thou it Were Ten Thousand Miles,” “Maggie Murphy’s Home,” and more. The piece is directed by Maureen A. Kennedy, Artistic Director and founder of the IATC.

The IATC has been honored with accolades & is recipient of many Best Of awards over the years. The company travels yearly for the Acting Irish International Theatre Festival in addition to performing locally.

Set in the 1890’s German and the Irish immigrants learn to assimilate, and not always in expected ways. The high jinks that result will keep audiences entertained from beginning to end.

Full of fun, politics, drink and various themes of days gone by, the playwright’s story line is carried by singing, music, dance, and by story-telling / narration.

We are casting all roles, teens thru middle-agers, playing Americans, Irish and Germans.
There are 16 total parts, 11 of which are singing roles.

**Looking for a strong Irish Tenor and Stage Manger/Costumer/Set Designer/Lighting Designer too, plus chorus roles, a tuba player, and Irish and German dancers.

Show will be on September 22, 2018. The performance and rehearsals will be at the Irish Heritage Center of Cincinnati, 3905 Eastern Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45226.

Rehearsals begin in early August on week day evenings and on weekends during the daytime – the schedule will depend on the given role.

Schedule your audition soonest; send your resume and a photo to irishtheatercincy@twc.com or call 513.533.-0100.
