Los Angeles, CA Casting Calls: Casting theater performers for “The Firehouse”

Project: The Firehouse
Casting Calls Category: Theater
Location: Los Angeles, CA

SYNOPSIS:

A south Bronx firehouse where honor and loyalty clash with doing the right thing. A rookie fireman saves a fellow firefighter instead of a 12-year-old girl also in the building, who dies as a result. The community is outraged to know the rookie fireman is also an ex-cop which comes to a boiling point where race, the code of honor and love all play a part in this intense drama.
Firehouse is getting its world premiere under the supervision of Bobby Moresco. This award-winning New York playwright will be in residence during the process.
