Red Curtain announces auditions for the final show of the 2017-2018 season, the campy musical "Angry Housewives," directed by Scott Randall.
With music and lyrics by Everett native Chad Henry, and book by A.M. Collins of Pioneer Square Theatre fame, "Angry Housewives" captures the fun and abandon of the 1980s punk rock scene while telling a timely story about female liberation and empowerment.

Actors should come prepared with a 1-2 minute comedic monologue and 16-32 bars of music from a musical theatre selection.
