The Syracuse Stage Literary Office is not accepting unsolicited scripts at this time. Unsolicited scripts cannot be read or returned.
Syracuse Stage will host auditions for local non-Equity actors on August 14, 6 – 8 p.m. for the roles of Travis Younger and Bobo in “A Raisin in the Sun”. The show runs Feb. 21 – March 11, 2018 in the Archbold Theatre at Syracuse Stage.
Travis Younger: Black male, age 7 to 10, must convincingly play a 7-year-old. Walter Lee and Ruth’s son in the show is “a good boy,” yet one who has already cultivated a potent sense of independence due to exposure to the striving and struggling adults around him. As a result, he is obliged to “grow up too fast.”
Bobo: Black male in his 30s or 40s. Bobo is a hapless fellow caught in the crosshairs of a white world that all but ignores a black man without opportunity or promise. Any drive that he shows is inspired by living vicariously through Walter Lee’s dream.
For more information or to make an appointment, contact Chris Botek at 315-443-4008 Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All actors are required to bring a picture and resume. Those who make an audition appointment will receive scenes to be performed.
