Auditions for Claudia Rankine’s CITIZEN

Posted by Wendy Knox

Frank Theatre is holding auditions for CITIZEN: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine, adapted for the stage by Stephen Sachs. A searing representation of the current American zeitgeist, CITIZEN is a boundary-bending work of poetry/prose/criticism, adapted for the stage by Stephen Sachs. A 6-member “ensemble piece…floats between dream and reality, narration and performance, and challenges its audience’s perceptions,” as it examines the ways racism pervades daily life in America, from highly visible news accounts to the daily microaggressions that render certain citizens invisible in our culture.  

CITIZEN will be performed at Intermedia Arts March 10-April 2, 2017. Rehearsals begin Feb 14.

Casting for 2 African-American women and 2 African-American men, ages open. Union and non-union.

Please prepare a 1-2 minute piece—monologue, poetry, spoken word, or material that you feel showcases your strengths as a performer, and bring a photo and resume.  Auditions will be held Fri, Dec 9 (4-7 PM) and Sat, Dec 10 (11-2 PM) or by appointment at the Frank Theatre rehearsal space, 2637 27th Ave S, Suite 208. To schedule an appointment, please send an email to infoATfranktheatreDOTorg with a preferred time. Your appointment will be confirmed with a return email.
