Auditions for "A Raisin in the Sun" Play.
Runs: March 17 - April 2.
Seeking females 18+
This landmark drama was one of the first on Broadway to examine African-American life on the cusp of the civil rights era and the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway. Set on Chicago's South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The tensions and prejudice they face mixed with the sacrifice, trust and love among the family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration. The New York Times hailed it as "the play that changed American theatre forever."
For non-musicals you will most likely be asked to read scenes from the script. Perusal copies of scripts are often available for those interested in auditioning.
Rehearsals are usually held Sunday through Thursday evenings. We are committed to diversity on our stage and in our audience. We strongly encourage actors of color to audition.
