Due to circumstances beyond our control, we’re in need of a new cast member for our production of Lydia.
We’re looking for Rene, the older brother. Age range: 16-30. Ethnicity: Hispanic/Latino (or of that appearance). Spanish-speaking a plus, but not required. Please email the theater at info AT acrosstown DOT org or message us on Facebook if interested!
By Octavio Solis, Directed by Kathy Byrne
Performance dates: Oct 15-Nov 1, 2015
Set in the 1970s on the Texas border separating the United States and Mexico, Lydia is an intense, lyrical, and magical new play. The Flores family welcomes Lydia, an undocumented maid, into their El Paso home to care for their daughter Ceci, who was tragically disabled in a car accident on the eve of her Quinceañera, her fifteenth birthday. Lydia’s immediate and seemingly miraculous bond with the girl sets the entire family on a mysterious and shocking journey of discovery. Adult themes, language and nudity.
Although auditions, by their very nature, require that performances and their suitability to any individual role be judged, we won’t judge YOU (except maybe to tell you how awesome you are). You’ll find that the people here are very warm and welcoming, and happy to read with you, whether it’s your first time on stage or your thousandth. Backstage help is needed, too– please contact us if you would like to get involved!
If cast you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family 🙂
Please spread the word and help us find our Rene!
