DramaTech announces auditions for THE PIANO LESSON

Primary tabs

Auditions for August Wilson's THE PIANO LESSON will be held on August 26th and 27th at 7:15 PM at DramaTech Theatre. See audition information and show description below!
Set in 1936 Pittsburgh during the aftermath of the Great Depression, THE PIANO LESSON follows the lives of an African-American family and an heirloom, the family piano, which is decorated with designs carved by an enslaved ancestor. The play focuses on the arguments between a brother and a sister who have different ideas on what to do with the piano. The brother, Boy Willie, is a sharecropper who wants to sell the piano to buy the land (Sutter's land) where his ancestors toiled as slaves. The sister, Berniece, remains emphatic about keeping the piano, which shows the carved faces of their great-grandfather's wife and son during the days of their enslavement.
Auditions will consist of a cold read from the script. You only need to attend one night of auditions. Link to the audition sides can be found below; send any questions as a private message or in an email to info@dramatech.org.
