ACT announces auditions for “Irena’s Vow,” Dec. 9-10
Albert Lea Community Theater has announced auditions that will be held Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 9-10, at 7 p.m., for the drama “Irena’s Vow” at the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center.
Based on a true story, this play exemplifies the triumphs of the human spirit over devastating tragedy.
Irena Gut Opdyke is a 19-year-old housekeeper in the home of a Nazi officer when she finds out that the Jewish ghetto is about to be liquidated. Determined to help 12 Jewish workers, she shelters them in the basement of the German commandant’s house. Over the next two years, Irena hides her friends until the end of the German occupation—concealing them in the midst of countless Nazi parties, a blackmal scheme, and even the birth of a child.
Eight performances of this play are scheduled for Feb. 13-22, 2020. This drama contains some scenes that are not suitable for young children. At least four women and six men of various ages will be cast for this play. There are no roles for children. Those auditioning should be prepared to read from the script. Rehearsals will be scheduled week nights, with some weekend involement closer to the performance dates.
