April 4, 2012

We’re in our first exciting week of rehearsals for our final show of the 2011/2012 theatre season: BETWEEN THE BELLS, the true story of life in our public schools (Rated PG 13 for strong language).
And of course we need people from all our communities involved in order to be successful. We have a great cast so far, but are still looking for three more actors, middle-high school through college ages, who have Hispanic or Latino backgrounds and want to act in a great play. Please help us in our search by passing along the information that is pasted below. AND we hope to see you at the show on June 1, 2, 8, 9, 2012.
Thanks as always for your support, we can’t build a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, intergenerational community theatre without you!
Warmly, Jenny Justice

ABOUT REAL LIFE IN DURHAM PUBLIC SCHOOLS?

JOIN DURHAM FAMILY THEATRE IN REHEARSALS FOR

BETWEEN THE BELLS An Original Play Written by Jenny Justice. And developed in ongoing collaboration with students from middle & high schools and colleges in Boston, Mass. And Durham, NC

HISPANIC/LATINO ACTOR ROLES AVAILABLE ARE:

§       Olivia Maria Hernandez – 10th grade – From Mexican background. Smart. Quietly outgoing. She goes unnoticed by teachers until they see her high grades. She goes unnoticed by students until they realize she can help them in class and that she is fun. She is a pastel artist.

§       Joseph Muñoz- 10th grade. Born in Mexico, moved to the US when he was 6-years-old. His mother left his father 8 years ago; his father now lives in Mexico with his new wife and daughter. JOSEPH remembers the death of an uncle who used to take him to bars and dogfights when he was five. He is furious. He is also incredibly sweet and wants to please. He is torn between his gentle nature, his early lead poisoning. He has been incorrectly diagnosed with and medicated for ADHD.

§       Enrico Gomez – 10th grade – A friendly young man. He is smart and has taught himself enough English to make good grades. When he doesn’t understand, he cheats shamelessly, because no one is helping him or his friends with English. He enjoys his status as a leader in the Hispanic community at school. He is a trickster, in the style of Wylie Coyote, Pan and Puck, a satyr.
