The Alley Theatre is auditioning local, non-AEA actors for I, Barbara Jordan written by Celeste Bedford Walker and directed by Eileen J. Morris.

We are looking for two African American men to portray Barbara Jordan’s father and grandfather in a biographical play for young audiences.  These actors also play all the other men Barbara encounters throughout her career, including legislators, reporters and students.  The play will rehearse in January 2011 and tour to local schools in February 2011.  The audition will consist of readings from the script.  Interested parties should have daytime availability during the rehearsal and performance period.

Auditions are by appointment only.

To set up an appointment and receive the audition sides, please email Andrew Brown at or call Briana Resa at 713.315.5424.
