Hastings Street Auditions Announced

Plowshares Theatre Company is announcing non-Equity auditions for its Summer production for HASTINGS STREET, running Wednesday, April 20 through May 13. Video submissions that adhere to the guidelines below will be considered. Out-of-town actors will be considered. Auditions for members of the Actors’ Equity Association will be held at a later date.

Synopsis: HASTINGS STREET explores the lives of the Carson family as they fight for the city they love while navigating being uprooted on a personal and community-wide basis. It’s the summer of 1949, and Detroit is electric with anticipation. President Truman had just passed the Housing Act, a law that ushers in a nationwide urban renewal initiative. Black Bottom, Detroit’s segregated Black neighborhood, is targeted for ‘urban renewal.’

Produced by Plowshares Theatre Company, the performances will be held at the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts.
