Zach Theatre auditioning for male Latino actor aged 45-70 for 'Salt and Pepper,' July 9, 2013

Zach Theatre Austin TXZACH Theatre announces auditions for Salt and Pepper on Tuesday July 9 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the ZACH Whisenhunt Classroom Studio located at 15426 Toomey Road.

Seeking one male Latino actor aged 45-70 for the role of the Old Man for this bilingual play about the effect of illiteracy on families. We hope to cast actors who are Spanish speakers. We are seeking non-AEA actors.

Salt and Pepper is a bilingual production, presented in English and Spanish, that explores the burden of illiteracy and the bonds of family and friendship. Salt is a boy whose family has a secret. His grandfather can’t read or write, and the Old Man’s shame and silence make life hard on the two grandsons in his care. When Salt becomes friends with Pepper, her love of books sparks his own interest in the world of words. Together, they discover a mysterious box of postcards that reveal the truth about his family’s past and leads them toward a more hopeful future. For ages 7 and up.
