"The Silent Room: A Worker's Musical" Casting Call

Published Robbie - Tue, 07/10/2012 - 1:50pm

As a fundraiser for the Industrial Workers of the World, the Gainesville branch is putting together a production of The Silent Room: A Workers' Musical. The play centers around the workers at Ahab's Coffee who are growing tired of their bosses exploiting them. After incidents of sexual harassment, scheduling cuts, loss of healthcare benefits, and many other blows to the employees, they decide to unionize and fight for better working conditions. The play spreads the message, philosophy, and even many of the tactics used by the IWW and other radical labor unions through the fun medium of musical theatre. But this play cannot be a success without your help!

Casting auditions will be held on Friday, July 13th at 6pm at the Civic Media Center! There are twenty roles so invite your friends. All experience levels are welcomed. Auditionees are encouraged to have a one-minute monologue and 16 bars of a song prepared to perform.
