Announcing auditions: 8

Director Lori Portner has announced auditions for Dustin Lance Black's "8," the second staged reading in the 2014-2015 staged reading series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Uncover the truth about marriage for gay and lesbian Americans. "8" - a new play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar) - demystifies the debate around marriage equality by chronicling the landmark trial of Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Hollingsworth v. Perry). Using the actual court transcripts from the landmark federal trial of California's Prop. 8 and first-hand interviews, "8" shows both sides of the debate in a moving 90-minute play.

Auditions will be Sunday, September 28 from 5-7 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette, and Monday, September 29 from 6-8 p.m. in Room 2164 (West Acting Studio) at Pao Hall, 552 W. Wood Street on the Purdue University campus. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Everyone is asked to stay as long as possible at the auditions.

Lori seeks to cast 21 actors.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
