Theater Auditions for JITNEY: Fine Arts Center Experimental Theater, 7:00PM
Wabash Theater announces auditions for Jitney, directed by Prof. D. Watson. Scripts may be signed out in advance from the FAC box office. The production will take place on April 17-20. Penned by late Pulitzer prize-winning playwright August Wilson, Jitney dramatizes the lives of several African-American men hustling to make a living as jitneys--unofficial, unlicensed taxi cab drivers living in Pittsburgh during the 1970s. As urban renewal threatens to board up the jitney station, men share stories and gossip, two young lovers fight for their future, and the station owner confronts his long-estranged son. Wilson illuminates the human condition with an exquisite sense of the poetry of ordinary life. ''Jitney holds its audience in charmed captivity.” --The New York Times.
