  • The Two-Town Theater auditions for My Three Angels 6:30pm to 8:30pm @ Madjax Muncie 514 East Jackson Street

    The Two-Town Theater Company has announced auditions for “My Three Angels,” the company’s second production. Auditions are 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the New Castle-Henry County Library, 376 S. 15th St., New Castle. Auditions continue from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Madjax, 514 E. Jackson St., Muncie. 

    “My Three Angels,” a comedy by Sam and Bella Spewak, is set at Christmastime in French Guiana in 1910. A family who runs a small shop is in dire straits because a mercenary uncle who owns the shop is arriving with intentions to close the business. Three inmates, trustees from Devil’s Island who are repairing the roof, assist the family with a series of unorthodox methods so that eventually, good triumphs over evil, romance flourishes and the shop remains intact.

    The comedy was written in the 1950s and starred Walter Slezak in the role of Joseph, one of the three convicts. The play ran for over a year and a half on Broadway, a very good run for a non-musical. Since then, the play has been a staple for theaters across the country, especially during the holiday season.

    There are roles for seven men and three women. The male roles require actors from their early 20s (one convict, the young lover, and a late arrival) and actors upward in age to include a father, a very difficult uncle and two other convicts. The roles for women are for one young woman in her late teens or early 20s, her mother and a busy shopper who could be any age.

    Performances will be Dec. 7-10 at Madjax in Muncie and Dec. 13 and 15-17 at the New Castle Henry-County Public Library.
