African Community Theatre at Kent State to Hold AuditionsPosted Feb. 19, 2010
The African Community Theatre at Kent State University is holding auditions for its Spring 2010 production of “Talking Bones” by Shay Youngblood. Auditions will take place Wednesday, Feb. 24, through Friday, Feb. 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the African Community Theatre, which is located in Oscar Ritchie Hall along Terrace Drive on the Kent State campus.
“Talking Bones” is a contemporary tale about the “ancestors” and three generations of African-American women who are trying to get in touch with their roots. “It is a poetic play about embracing the past, present, connecting to the ancestors, their dreams and the future,” said Dr. Fran Dorsey, the African Community Theatre’s resident director who will direct the play.
The cast of the production consists of three African-American women and two African-American men. Interested individuals should prepare a three- to five-minute audition selection. The theatre is also seeking volunteers to help with the spring production.
For additional information on auditions or to volunteer, please call 330-672-0140 or 330-672-0151.
