City Park Players Auditions – Tribes
June 3, 2017 @ 10:00 am
Interested in acting? City Park Players is holding auditions for Tribes, written by Nina Raine. Show dates are Thursdays – Sundays from August 10th to 20th. 2 young women, 2 young men, 1 older man, and 1 older woman are needed.
Tribes focuses on a comically dysfunctional Jewish British family, made up of the parents Beth and Christopher and three grown children living at home, Daniel, Ruth, and Billy, the last of whom is deaf, raised to read lips and speak but without knowledge of sign language. When Billy meets a hearing woman born to deaf parents who is now slowly going deaf herself, his interaction with her (including her teaching him sign language) reveals some of the languages, beliefs, and hierarchies of the family and the “extended family” of the deaf community.
Auditions will be held in the Lobby of the Kress Theatre on Saturday, June 3rd at 10:00 AM and Monday, June 5th at 6:00 PM.
