Our objective is to work with libraries and community centers of San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Alameda Counties to present the play to audience members of all ages at no cost to the audience.

 

The Play: This bi-lingual play is the boyhood story of Tomás Rivera and how he befriended a librarian in Iowa who encouraged him to read. Tomás, the child of migrant farm workers, became a writer, a professor, and a national education leader. The play includes a cast of three with puppets that create a magical journey of discovery.

● All Roles: Bilingual Spanish/English, some singing

 

Schedule:

● Rehearsals mid-March-April, Thursday evenings and Sundays. Plus tech week. Approximately 50 hours of rehearsal.

Pay:

● $16-$18/hr depending on experience (Approximately 1250-1500 for the entire project)

● Additional travel stipend

● Additional pay for extended performances

 

Auditions:

● Please send your resume and video audition – prepare a song (bi-lingual folk song is good!) and a one-minute monologue to noahrd@fusetheatre.org
