Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater announces auditions for the Junior Repertory Company mainstage production of The Beman Project: One Day You'll Be A Man. Auditions will be held April 3rd and 5th 4:45-6:45pm, at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street in Middletown. Auditions are open to all young people ages 12 - 15. African-American young people encouraged.
Young people wishing to audition must pre-register for one of the two audition dates by contacting the Playhouse. Auditioners do not need to prepare anything, but should arrive on time, dress to move, and plan on staying for the entire 2 hours. Auditions will include light movement and reading from the script. Everyone who auditions and commits to the rehearsal and production schedule will be cast in the show!
The Beman Project: One Day You'll Be A Man, is a new play by Jacque Brown. It explores Middletown’s African-American history through the eyes of three spirited teens who travel back in time. The trio meet and interact with prominent historical figures from Middletown and other places who aid them in learning history and what it means to be a man. Along the way they discover life and history are connected and aren't necessarily the journey they'd thought. Rehearsals begin April 17th 2023 and will be Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:45- 6:45 pm. Performances will be June 2nd-4th at Oddfellows Playhouse and Cross Street AME Zion Church.
