SEEKING: Lily & Joan Theatre Company is seeking adults of all ethnicities and backgrounds to audition for Redeemer Mine by J.C. Pankratz. The director encourages all gender identities to audition for the roles they feel the best identify with, though she/her, he/him pronouns are used in the script.
Casting Note from the playwright:
On casting: Respectfully, I request consideration of multi-racial and multi-ethnic casting. I think Charles Mee says it best: “Directors should go very far out of their way to avoid creating the bizarre, artificial world of all intact white people, a world that no longer exists where I live, in casting my plays.” Thank you.
