HERSHEY, Pa., January 9, 2018 – Hershey Area Playhouse announces auditions for John Patrick Shanley's Italian American Reconciliation, a comic look at life and love to usher in spring. Dubbed "a fanciful, lighthearted and zestfully comic exploration of male and female relationships" this award-winning play follows the story of Huey Maximilian Bonfigliano.
Huey has a problem: While he is safely divorced from his first wife, Janice, who shot his dog and even took a bead on him, he feels he cannot regain his "manhood" until he woos and wins her one more time, so he enlists his best friend Aldo's help and in a scene reminiscent of Cyrano, the pair work together to woo Janice, much to his new girlfriend Teresa's dismay. By the end of the play Hugo (and the audience) become aware that, in the final essence, "the greatest—and only—success is to be able to love"—a truth which emerges delightfully from the heartwarming story.
Auditions will be held Monday, February 12th, and Tuesday, February 13th at the Playhouse from 6 - 8 PM. Please come with a prepared monologue. Callbacks will be asked to memorize sides.
