PLAINFIELD, NJ - Calling all actors! The Dream House Theater Company will be holding auditions for two plays this week at First Unitarian Society of Plainfield, or FUSP, in recognition of the campaign for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Women's activists have marked Nov. 25th as a day against violence since 1981, and in 1999, the United Nations General Assembly designated this day as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, inviting "governments, international organizations and NGOs to organize activities designed to raise public awareness of the problem on that day."
Auditions for the Dream House Theater Company productions, Seven and Breakfast at the Laytons, will be held at FUSP on two dates:
- Thursday, Sept. 14th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
- Saturday, Sept. 16th, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Seven, a documentary play conceived by Carol Mack and written by seven award-sinning playwrights, tells the true stories through monologues of seven women who bravely fought for the well-being of other women, families and children around the world.
Auditions are open for five female actors, and two dancers (ballet or modern). Must be eighteen years or older.
Breakfast at the Laytons, an original one-act play by Khatana Summerlin and produced by Dream House Theater Company, is the story of a wealthy African-American woman who experiences unexpected violence at the hands of her own son.
Producers are casting one African-American male actor 18 to 25 years old, and one African-American female actor 18 to 30 years old.
The productions will take place mid-November, and TAPinto Plainfield will let readers know when tickets go on sale.
