CU theatre to hold open auditions

The Cameron University Department of Theatre Arts continues its season of Celebrating the Cameron University Centennial with Athol Fugard's "My Children! My Africa!" Open auditions for the production are scheduled for Sunday, November 23 at 7 p.m. The auditions will take place in the Cameron University Studio Theatre and are open to the entire Lawton-Fort Sill community. 

Roles for this production are a Caucasian female (late teens to early 20s), a black male (late teen to early 20s) and a black male (late 30s to late 40s).

A profoundly stirring tale, "My Children! My Africa!" examines the power of learning and the potency of words, ideas and hope in a time of heightened political and social unrest as a dedicated black teacher in a segregated township is determined to pair his most gifted student with an enthusiastic white schoolgirl in an English literature competition. Friendships become colored by impassioned debates, and the three characters struggle to find understanding amidst South Africa's racial and social divides.

Performance dates for the production are February 12-15, 2009.

For more information, contact the CU Theatre Arts Department at 581-2346.
