SAVANNAH—The city of Savannah’s Cultural Arts Theatre announced that it will be holding auditions for “In Hidden Rooms,” Sept. 2 and 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the Black Box at S.P.A.C.E., located at 9 W. Henry St. The performance will be directed by singer/writer Ina Williams. Callbacks will be held Sept. 5.
The show calls for performance artists who write, from diverse races and cultures, to create a poignant play about the role of racism in life, culture and history. “The purpose of the show is to create a reflection,” Williams said. “The audience should walk away sad, entertained, embarrassed and provoked to re-evaluate the way they look at other cultures and races.”
Those auditioning should come prepared with a 1-2 minute monologue and be prepared to share special talents in other areas such as poetry recital or dancing. Writing samples are required. The selected cast will participate in creating the show during a three-month workshop. The performance will take place in March 2009 in the Black Box at S.P.A.C.E.
Williams hails from Atlanta, and is an actor, singer, poet and choreographer, as well as a composer of original freestyle poetry and lyrics. She has been performing and writing for close to a decade. In May, she held a lead role in the Savannah Shakespeare Festival. She has released her debut album entitled, “Masterpiece.”
