Upcoming Auditions

Living Out

By

Lisa Loomer

Performance Dates: January 17-19, 24-26
Performance Location: Tremper Studio Theatre (Room 120)
Synopsis: The story of the complicated relationship between a Salvadoran nanny and the lawyer she works for. Both women are smart, hard-working mothers. Both want better lives for their children. The play explores what is the shared humanity between them…and what are the differences wrought by race, class and Ana's illegal status. Through Ana, we understand what it means to leave a child in another country to come here, and the potential cost of sacrificing one's own child in order to care for someone else's. Through Nancy, we understand the pressure on women today to "do it all" and the cost of making that choice. The play also looks at the prejudices and misconceptions between Anglos and Latinos. How do we make someone "the other"? What is the cost of doing so?
Audition Dates: October 9th and 10th (3:30-7:00)
Audition Location: Room 229 (2nd Floor, Northwest Corner, Enter through Door 27)

Rehearsal Information: Rehearsals will officially begin in October. Currently, rehearsals are not planned over winter break; however, because weather is unpredictable during the winter months, additional rehearsals may be added as necessary. Rehearsals typically run from 3:30 until 7:00, with technical rehearsals running longer. There will be one Saturday rehearsal during this period, which will occur on January 12th, otherwise, there are no traditional weekend rehearsals. A complete rehearsal calendar will be shared through KUSD Google Drive once the cast list is posted. The calendar will also appear on this website once rehearsals have begun. Cast members are not permitted to miss more than three rehearsals, unless absences were already scheduled, so please list all conflicts on your audition form.
