Penguin Rep Theatre, under the leadership of Joe Brancato, founding Artistic Director, and Andrew M. Horn, Executive Director, presents Centennial Casting, a comedy by Gino DiIorio and Nancy Bleemer, beginning Friday, June 14, in Stony Point, New York.

Love, laughter and mistaken identity take the stage in Centennial Casting when Vincent DiDonato and his co-workers discover a pile of headshots sent in by actors who have mistaken their metal casting shop for a theatrical casting agency. A hilarious romantic escapade turns up the heat as sparks sometimes fly in the most unexpected places.

According to Mr. Brancato, Centennial Casting is “a hilarious romantic escapade as sparks sometimes fly in the most unexpected places.”

The cast, under Mr. Brancato’s direction, includes Coryn Carson as Michele (Regional: Like No One’s Watching); Grace Experience as Edie (NY: Grounded. Regional: Some People Hear Thunder, Midwives); Mike Labbadia as Vincent (Off Broadway: Arcadia, Winter’s Tale, Hedda Gabler); Joshua Morgan as Carmine (Broadway: Ain’t Too Proud, Les Miserables); and Bill Phillips as Doo-Doo (Penguin: After, The Savannah Disputation).

Director Brancato’s credits include Michael McKeever’s Daniel’s Husband, which transferred from Penguin to Primary Stages at the Cherry Lane Theatre and then onto its commercial production at the Westside Theatre/Upstairs, as well as the same playwright’s After, which moved from Penguin to 59E59 Theaters; Erasmus Fenn’s Drop Dead Perfect at Theatre at St. Clements (NY Times Critic’s Pick); The Devil’s Music: The Life & Blues of Bessie Smith (Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel, Off B’way Alliance, and Audelco Award nominee); Freed (Audelco Award nominee); Tryst (Outer Critics nomination for Best Play) at the Promenade and at Irish Rep; and Cobb (Drama Desk winner).

Gino DiIorio (Co-Author) is a New York City-based playwright whose works have been produced all over the U.S. including at New Jersey Rep, Shadowlands Stages, Playhouse in the Square, Luna Stage, Arclight Theatre, Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, The Washington Stage Guild, Custom Made Theatre, Urban Stages, Seven Angels, The Garter Lane Theatre, and Virginia Stage Company.  He is the recipient of the Berrilla Kerr Playwriting Award, E. Desmond Lee Playwriting Prize, and BBC International Playwriting Prize, and is a two-time finalist for the prestigious Laurents Hatcher Award as well as the Yale Drama Series. Nancy Bleemer (Co-Author) also wrote the play Providence, a finalist in HBO’s New Playwrights Festival, which was produced at 59e59 Theaters and made into a short film in 2015.

Centennial Casting is designed by Isaac Goldbaum (set), Kadee Mae (costumes), Todd Wren (lights), Idan Sassoni (sound), and Dana R. Weintraub (props). Michael Palmer is the production stage manager.
