Auditions for Building the Wall
Different Stages will be holding auditions by appointment only Saturday October 7 and Monday evening October 9 for the San Diego premiere of Building The Wall by Robert Schenkkan -a Point Loma Playhouse presents a Different Stages production of this timely one act - 80 minute play. The play calls for one female age range 25-40 African American and one male very Caucasian (think very Texan) actor age range 30-45. The play was written in direct response to the immigration policies of the Trump administration. The story: In the very near future, the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. As a writer interviews the former supervisor of a private prison, it becomes clear how federal policy has escalated to a terrifying, seemingly inconceivable, yet inevitable conclusion. The play will be directed by Jerry Pilato and staged at the Point Loma Playhouse 3035 Talbot St San Diego, California, CA 92106. Actors will receive a stipend and must be available for 2 readings and photos in October (dates depending on casting) with rehearsals beginning in mid November. Play is slated to open January 19 playing through January 28 with a possibility of added dates due to the subject matter. Please email resume, current photo and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Presented through special arrangement with The Dramatist Play Service.
