This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle: the loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian champion, and the Hungarian-American female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian. From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score. Several numbers, including “One Night in Bangkok” and “I Know Him So Well”, are international hits.

We welcome non-traditional casting – all roles are open to all races and ethnic diversities!

A Piece of My Heart provides an absorbing and moving experience about a tumultuous period in American history—the Vietnam War. It is a powerful, true drama about six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays the courageous story of each young woman as she struggles through the experiences that leave scars yet triumphs as a result of their tour through the war-torn nation. With the backdrop of the memorial wall in Washington, A Piece of My Heart is a salute to the men and women who represented our country during a divisive era.

Ally Theatre Company announces auditions for the DC-area Premiere of:
Rasheeda Speaking
by Joel Drake Johnson

Actors are encouraged to apply, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or age. Roles will be cast responsibly in regards to age and race.

Seeking: DOCTOR WILLIAMS: mid 40s-early 60s. White male. Charming, charismatic, a favorite among his patients. Loves being the boss. Hides his irritation and discomfort with Jaclyn behind a smile. Wants Jaclyn fired because he doesn’t like her attitude but knows he has no legal ground to do so. Uses Ileen’s adoration of him to manage and manipulate her relationship with Jaclyn.

ROSE SAUNDERS: late 60s-70s. A long-time patient of Dr. Williams. Feeble. Is offered a wheelchair but declines. Sweet and grandmotherly. There is no indication of her ethnicity in the script, but based on her dialogue she is most likely not black.
