Kent State’s African Community Theatre Holds Auditions for Spring 2012 Production
The African Community Theatre at Kent State University will be holding auditions and seeking volunteers for its Spring 2012 production of Marlin T. Tazewell’s “Ain’t Nothing But a Thang.” This award-winning drama-comedy takes a raw look at the problems that plague an African American family, including AIDs, illiteracy, self-hate and drug abuse. Dr. Fran Dorsey, director of the African Community Theatre, will direct the play.
Auditions will be held on Feb. 16 and 17 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Feb. 18 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the African Community Theatre. It is located in Room 230 of Ritchie Hall at Kent State. The street address is 225 Terrace Drive.
The cast consists of three African American women, ages 17-50, and three African American men, ages 17-30. Interested individuals should prepare a three- to five-minute monologue. Volunteers are also needed to assist in all aspects of production.
