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.

The roles of JACLYN SPAULDING and ILEEN VAN DE METER are cast. All roles are paid.

Faerie
Friday, May 11, 2018 . 7 PM

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

alight dance theater will create a fantastical and mythical dance work exploring the under-considered culture and belief in fairy lore. Faerie – referencing the world in which fairies inhabit – will examine the prevalence of fairies, their connection with humans and common misconceptions of both types of creatures. In a realm of “in-between,” existing alongside our version of reality, fairies and humans encounter one another. Employing the magic of imagination and storytelling, Faerie will inform contemporary perspectives on a range of themes including the power of belief, the struggle of human control, identity shaping and unpacking identity-related stereotypes.

Tickets: Pay what you wish.
