Auditions for Summit Playhouse Production of 'Defiance' Set for Dec. 6-7


SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Playhouse will stage John Patrick Shanley's 'Defiance' beginning in late February of 2017, and is now hosting auditions for the production on December 6 - 7, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each evening, at the Summit Playhouse located at 10 New England Avenue. Callbacks will be held December 12. Sides will be provided for all actors at the auditions.

'Defiance' will be directed by Frank Licato, with performances February 24, 25 and March 3, 4, 10, 11 at 8 p.m.,
and February 26 and March 5 at 2 p.m.

The story is set on a United States Marine Corps base in North Carolina in 1971. Two officers -- one black and one white -- are on a collision course over race, women and the high cost of doing the right thing. The riveting, surprising new work is about power, love and responsibility -- specifically, who has it, who wants it, and who deserves it.
