Central Theatre Ensemble is looking for a LatinX/Chicana actor to play the mother/storyteller in our upcoming Staged Reading of En Las Sombras. The play will be presented as a stage reading at the end of the quarter and rehearsals take place during the evening hours. The actor does not need to be a drama major and there will be very little memorization required. In order to sustain the author's intent we seek a LatinX actress. The character can be of any age (over 18 ) and any physical type.


En Las Sombras by Jordan Ramirez Puckett weaves together a captivating myth and the defiant love between two young siblings Xenia and Luz. This play makes the poetic political and vice versa. The play deals with the ancient world and cleverly brings us to the modern world where the separation of children at our nation's border has caused major destruction.


Information about the play and script can be found on the CWU Libraries Data Base, search New Play Exchange, log in with your CWU credentials, then search En Las Sombras.


Please spread the news to students/faculty/staff and community members who you know might be interested. We hope to cast this role by Friday, January 15th.
