Act a Lady by Jordan Harrison

The Theatre and Dance Department is hosting auditions for our Spring Term production, Act A Lady by Jordan Harrison.

Scene from Act a Lady

When the men of a small Prohibition-era town decide to put on a play dressed in "fancy-type, women-type clothes," the whole community is affected: gender lines blur, eyebrows raise, identities explode, and life and art are forever entangled. A thoughtful and exuberant Midwestern fable about the woman in every man, the man in every woman and the power of theatre to uncover both.

Need actors for six roles, three male identifying roles and three female identifying roles. Note all actors will play (and dress) as both male and female identifying characters at different points in the play.
