A portion of the proceeds from this production will go directly toward helping survivors on the brink of homelessness by way of the Hurricane Maria Relief Fund through the Episcopal Office of Latino Assistance.

Performances will be October 12, 13 & 14 and October 19, 20, & 21; Friday and Saturday night shows at 8:00pm and Sunday evening shows at 5:00pm at a site specific location in Seattle.

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
Play Your Part is seeking seven actors for the following roles:

Actor 1 (female identifying, plays mid 30’s - mid 50’s) portrays the Island of Puerto Rico; an elderly Dominican Mother who stays strong when her daughter and husband must leave for the mainland; a Woman on the edge of sanity as she attempts to mop the water out of her home and quell her incessantly barking dog


Actor 2 (female identifying, plays mid 30’s - mid 60’s) portrays a Woman confused and injured during the storm; Lizbeth, who struggles to tell her parents she cannot stay to take care of them; Nidia, a mother who recounts her life growing up in Puerto Rico and will do anything for her ailing daughter


Actor 3 (female identifying, plays mid 50’s - mid 60’s) portrays Sofia Rosario, a jovial “people person”, a radiant soul in the eye of adversity; Lucia, a technologically challenged Grandmother who lovingly teases her husband for sport


Actor 4 (female identifying, plays mid 20’s) portrays a stoic Sister; a Woman who appears to be a simple hairstylist but reveals a complex past through a tough and sarcastic façade


Actor 5 (female identifying, plays young teens - mid 20’s) a bold Niece angry at the storm; Melanie, a daughter who understands how to help her struggling mother; a Woman lost in the desert who finds a man who seems to be her mirror image (clowning experience, a plus!)


Actor 6 (male identifying, plays teens - mid 20’s) - Musa Paradisiaca, an abstracted version of a classic newsboy; a Man lost in the desert who finds a woman who seems to be his mirror image (clowning experience, a plus!)


Actor 7 (male identifying, plays mid 50’s - mid 60’s) a Dominican Father who must leave his wife behind; Antonio, a technologically challenged grandfather who loves his wife and thrives on laughter; a Man displaced by the hurricane seeks out his only living relative who thinks he has been dead for years (thin hair or almost bald ideal!)
