Auditions for 'White People' start Sunday

URBANA — Auditions for the Celebration Company's production of "White People" by J.T. Rogers will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday and Monday at the Station Theatre, 223 N. Broadway Ave.

The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. The characters available to be cast by director Joel Higgins:

— Alan Harris: Male. Early 30s. College history teacher. Not quite recovered from a severe trauma that befell him and his wife, Sarah, a short while ago.

— Mara Lynn Doddson: Female in her 30s to 40s. Wife to a cheating husband, mother to a severely epileptic son. Lives in North Carolina.

— Martin Bahmueller: Male in his 40s or 50s. Relatively well-off. Living in St. Louis. Obstinate, stubborn, generally out of touch with any information that he doesn't agree with — all to disastrous ends.

"White People" is a controversial and darkly funny play about the lives of three ordinary white Americans placed under the spotlight. Through heart-wrenching confessions, they wrestle with guilt, prejudice — and the price they and their children must pay for their actions.
