Audition for The Mountain by Chelsea Woodley
Aya, the lady adventurer, (not a princess because princesses are stuck up), just wants to go home. She is a refugee and that means she is not from here. She’s tired of Canada, and wants to go back to her great and magical valley, far, far away. Only problem is, her dad won’t answer her phone calls, she’s broke, and the lonely boy she’s found to be her side-kick, doesn’t want to help. A provocative and beautiful show for young people about fear, bullies, war, and the mountain we must climb together, as one, to find peace.
A refugee now in Canada. 8 years old.
Born in Canada. 8 years old.
Audition for Untitled by Kalale Dalton-Lutale
(HIGH SCHOOL/CEGEP SHOW)
Think of your first best friend. What did she look like? Remember her laugh. Were you in the same class? Think about the millions of times you slept over at her house, told her secrets, swapped diaries, shared clothes. Did you have the same taste in movies? Crushes on the same people? Where is she now? Bailey and Zanele are best-friends. They have known each other for as long as they can remember. On their last days of junior high – a time when they will have to make serious decisions about their futures – both long to live out their dreams as super cool artists, but this means getting accepted into the right high school first. In the third floor girls’ bathroom, both have letters, both will open them, and both will find out their fate. This timely and sharp-witted coming-of-age story challenges the dynamics of friendship and where they meet with realities of race, class and gender.
