AUDITION: Threads, Weaving the Tapestry of Lawrence Freedom
January 4, 2022 @ 9:00 am - January 8, 2022 @ 9:00 pm
Calling Actors Grades 4 & up + Adults for an Original New Play by Ric Averill
Join Ric Averill in creating a family history of who founded or found Lawrence. Lawrence’s good, bad, and sometimes ugly relationship to abolition and the founding of our Free State is explored as we play out stories from prehistory to the here and now. Sound ambitious? Alternately comically absurd and deadly serious, actors will breathe life into each portrait of a Lawrence family facing the winds of temperance, women’s suffrage, civil rights, anti-war, women’s rights, the gay rights movements and more – you’ll be part of healing the past to prepare for a new future.
