“Inherit the Wind” Auditions
We’ll be auditioning for Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s “Inherit the Wind” on Tuesday January 8th and Wednesday January 9th at 7pm in the Winters Community Center. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. The production will take place in March, starting on Friday March 8th and running weekends through Sunday March 24th, Friday and Saturday shows at 8pm and Sunday shows at 2pm.
Based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” the play delves into the teaching of evolution in public school—an act against the law in Tennessee in 1925. The play examines concepts relevant and under attack today—the right to teach science as fact and not disputable opinion and how people respond when they believe their faith is being attacked.. As the prologue to the play implies, “the play can happen at anytime and at any place.”
A list of the characters is available on the Wikipedia page.
