Auditions in San Antonio for A Raisin in the Sun, Renaissance Guild, November 15
The Carver Community Cultural Center & TRG announce open auditions for the award winning, African American family drama A Raisin in The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, directed by Bill Lewis.
A Raisin in the Sun is set on Chicago’s South Side. The plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena.
When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, trust and love among the Younger family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
Actors are asked to prepare a one minute audition piece and a one minute cutting from the play. All positions are volunteer – non-Equity.
Audition Date: Thursday, November 15, 2012, 6.30PM. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in. Location: Little Carver Civic Center, 226 N. Hackberry, SATX, 78202 (click for map)
