Auditions for Spring production of The Amen Corner

Post Date: Mar 10, 2020

Attention! Video Casting Call for the last production of the 2019-2020 Season

The Amen Corner

By James Baldwin

Directed by Courtney Lyneé

After giving a fiery Sunday morning sermon, Margaret, a pastor is confronted by the unexpected arrival of someone from her past. This begins to show the double-edged sword of righteousness, and is transforms into a rousing, emotional display of faith and redemption. The Amen Corner also portrays the incongruity of religious idealism and harsh reality in an African American community plagued by poverty and racial prejudice.

Singing is a plus. 

Men: Note if you play piano and your skill level.
