Auditions for Carroll County Community Theatre’s Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller, July 21 and 22

Auditions for Carroll County Community Theatre’s Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller, July 21 and 22 in the Choral Rehearsal Room at 7 p.m.

Parts are available for 8 men and 5 women.

About the play: Death of a Salesman is one of Arthur Miller’s most famous and commonly revived works. The play is often viewed by many as a caustic attack on the American dream of achieving wealth and success without regard for principle. More importantly, at its wounded heart, this is a play about a family adrift. It leaves us pondering the explosive mix of love, contempt and seething anger that at times pulls the Loman family together and at other times hurls them apart. Death of a Salesman made both Arthur Miller and the character Willy Loman household names.

The debut of Salesman was greeted with enthusiastic reviews, received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1949, the 1949 Tony Award for Best Play, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Death of a Salesman is the first play in history to win all three major awards. Produced worldwide, the searing drama confirmed Miller as an internationally-known playwright.

Production dates are September 25-27 at 7:30 and Sunday September 28 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10. For more information call 770-838-1083.
