ADULT ACTORS - CAPRI THEATER & STAGES THEATRE COMPANY

Rate of Pay: 
$1200.00 $1500.00

Stages Theatre Company and the Capri Theater are accepting video auditions of ADULT ACTORS for the regional premiere of All American Boys, by Jody Drezner Alperin and Vicky Finney Crouch and based on the book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.

The lives of two high-school boys, one black and one white, powerfully intersect after they are thrust into the center of a violent act of racism. Unfolding through the boys alternating perspectives, the story follows their journey as they grapple with the devastating impact of racism as it reverberates through their families, school, and town.
