AUDITIONS FOR UA THEATRE PROGRAM’S SPRING MAIN STAGE PRODUCTION OF THE LOWER DEPTHS
Seeking students and community members to audition
The University of Akron School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration is looking for students and community members to audition for the Spring Main Stage production, Maxim Gorky’s The Lower Depths. Directed by guest artist Jimmie Woody, Northeast Ohio actor/director who was recently featured in Cleveland Playhouse’s production of Sweat. The play first premiered in 1902. The Lower Depths depicts a group of impoverished Russians living in a homeless shelter and is considered a staple of Russian social realism. The Lower Depths explores the dichotomy between the harsh truths of the characters’ reality and the comforting lies that pervade their lives. Most of the characters choose to delude themselves over the bleak reality of their condition.
Rehearsals will begin in January at the start of the spring semester. Specific times and dates are yet to be determined.
