The Eunice Player’s Theatre proudly announces auditions for The Subject Was Roses, the second show of the 41st season. Director Gabe Ortego is looking to fill the following roles:
       * Nettie Cleary- age 40-55, the matriarch of the Cleary family. She is devoted, loving, and often taken for granted.
       * John Cleary – age 40-55, patriarch of the Cleary family. He is gruff, stoic, and often misdirects the anger he feels about life’s missed opportunities toward his family.
       * Timmy Cleary- age 18-28, he is the only son of Nettie and John Cleary. He has recently returned home after serving in World War II.  Funny, good natured, and loyal, he is the mediator between his parents.

Gilroy, is the recipient of the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama as well as the 1962 Tony Award for Best Play.
