The Monticello Theatre Association (MTA) will be holding open auditions for our upcoming play “Stealing Home” on March 30 & 31, 2015 at 7 PM at the Phoenix Theater, 1406 N Market, Monticello, IL. (If you are not available for either date, a prior audition can be scheduled by contacting gilyohnka@gmail.com. “Stealing Home” is a comedy farce written by Pat Cook and directed by Gil Yohnka.

The play has a 4 man & 7 woman cast, with ages ranging from 20s to 60s +. The characters consist of 2 con men, a bumbling cop, a female mortician, an elderly lawyer, 3 conniving sisters, their mother, a psychiatrist, and a nun. The play is set in the Green Meadows Funeral Home and the fun begins when the 2 small time criminals unknowingly break in to steal a few trinkets and after being caught are invited to stay when the owner thinks one of them is her long lost son, (thus “Stealing Home”).

Performances will be May 30 & 31 and June 5, 6 & 7 2015.
