Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its production of Children of a Lesser God, directed by Rick Hornor.

Auditions will be held Sunday, October 29th and Monday, October 30th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be set between the times of 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm-10:00pm on Monday. Callbacks will be held on Wednesday, November 1st.

After three years in the Peace Corps, James, a young speech therapist, joins the faculty of a school for the deaf, where he is to teach lip-reading. He meets Sarah, a school dropout, totally deaf from birth, and estranged both from the world of hearing and from those who would compromise to enter that world. Fluent in sign language, James tries, with little success, to help Sarah, but gradually the two fall in love and marry. At first their relationship is a happy and glowing one, as the gulf of silence between them seems to be bridged by their desire to understand each other's needs and feelings, but discord soon develops as Sarah becomes militant for the rights of the deaf and rejects any hint that she is being patronized and pitied.

Once cast, Children of a Lesser God will run from Friday, January 19, 2018 to Sunday, February 4, 2018.


Other details:
There will be no rehearsals December 22-January 2.
