Cameron University Department of Theatre Arts to hold auditions for “The Winslow Boy”

The Cameron University Department of Theatre Arts will hold auditions for “The Winslow Boy,” its latest production during “A Year of Playhouse Triumphs!”, on Monday and Tuesday, January 10-11 at 7 p.m. Auditions will take place in the Studio Theatre, located in the Cameron University Theatre.  Roles are available for seven males ranging in age from 10 to 40 and four females ranging in age from 18 to 40. The production will be directed by Dr. David Fennema, Professor of Theatre Arts and will run from February 17-20.

 “The Winslow Boy,” written in 1947 by acclaimed playwright Terrance Rattigan, is the story of a father's fight to clear his son's name after the boy is expelled from a British naval college after being accused of theft and is based on a real-life incident that occurred during the Edwardian era. Considered by some to be Rattigan’s finest work, the gripping drama provides detailed insight into the social attitudes of the early 20th century as it follows a father's determination to clear his son's name and protect his family's honor.
