Auditions in Austin: Two Neo-Nazi ingenues for Am I White by Adrienne Dawes, Salvage Vanguard, December 3, 2013

Savage Vanguard Theatre Austin TX

Salvage Vanguard Theatre is holding open auditions for the world premiere of Am I White, an original play by Adrienne Dawes to be directed by Jenny Larson in October 2014.

When Neo-Nazi terrorist Wesley Connor returns to prison after a failed bomb plot, he is confronted with the two identities that most threaten his position within the White Order of Thule: fatherhood and his own mixed race heritage. Inspired by the true story of Leo Felton and Erica Chase, Am I White travels between linear narrative, recurring dreams and minstrel show nightmare to discover if a singular self exists in post-modern, “post-racial” America.

Casting two non-AEA actors for the roles of POLLY and RYAN:

Polly (19-25) - White, Female - member of White Order of Thule; Wesley's teenage girlfriend. {This role sings one song - please prepare 16-32 bars of a "lover's lament" to sing}

Ryan (21-31) - White, Male - Wesley's cell mate, member of the Aryan Brotherhood, also plays Interlocuter in minstrel show scenes.

AUDITIONS: TUESDAY DEC 3RD 7:30-10:30PM at Salvage Vanguard Theater 2803 E Manor Rd. - click for map
