Announcing auditions: Clybourne Park

Director Jolivette Anderson-Douoning has announced auditions for Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park, the third staged reading in the 2014-2015 staged reading series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play won the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act one takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

Auditions will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Monday, November 10 and Wednesday, November 12 at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. People who audition are asked to arrive as early as possible and be prepared to stay for the duration.

Jolivette seeks to cast 1 African-American woman, 1 African-American man, 2 white women and 3 white men.

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.
