Do you know a youth who should be onstage? Send him or her our way this week. We're holding auditions from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 26-27, for our upcoming youth play that calls for a multiracial cast.
Face Off Theatre Company of the Black Arts & Cultural Center is seeking both boys and girls for the staging of Shay Youngblood's "Amazing Grace," about a black, Trinidadian girl who loves to act out stories.
The supporting children's roles are written for youth with varied backgrounds, specifically Hispanic, white, East Indian, American Indian, African, as well as African-American youngsters.
We are also casting for adult women.
NEED: Our company is hoping to find three women, six girls (ages 8-14), four boys (ages 8-14), plus other children 5-15 years old.
WHERE: Auditions will be held both days at the Black Arts & Cultural Center, 2nd floor, Epic Center, located at 359 S. Kalamazoo Mall in downtown Kalamazoo.
PROCESS: Appointments are not required. Nor must actors prepare a selection. A script will be supplied at the audition, which should last 20 minutes each. If you prefer, bring a poem, a song or monologue if you have one.
