September 14, 2008 - Venangoland and local strongmen

Venangoland lays out some Autumn Inspiration for things to do in the area.

Nancy Mosser Casting is currently casting local actors and extras for the feature film Sorority Row, which will shoot in Pittsburgh for seven weeks starting October 6th.

Approximately 20 speaking roles and over 500 extras will be cast from the Pittsburgh region. Primarily needed are 18- to 25-year-olds to portray college students.

Anyone interested should fill out an application and upload photos on the Mosser Casting website. There will be an open call for extras to signup in person at a later date. More information may be found on the website, or by calling 412.434.1666.

Slippery Rock University's Rocket profiles regional "strongmen" (you know the guys on TV who roll tractor tires and pull planes with their teeth) including Venango County's own Rodney Plowman
