Theatre Tuscaloosa to Hold Auditions for “The Mamalogues” on April 11 & 12


March 25, 2022 – Theatre Tuscaloosa will hold open auditions for its upcoming production of The Mamalogues by Lisa B. Thompson on April 11 & 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wilson Carr Rehearsal Hall on the Martin Campus of Shelton State Community College (9500 Old Greensboro Road, Tuscaloosa, AL 35405).

Together at a mother’s retreat, Lauren, Beverley, and Tasha share their stories about playground racial profiling, being the “only one” at the PTA meeting, the lack of organic food in the ‘hood, and more. This satirical comedy, directed by Kenyatta “YaYa” Browne, celebrates the lives of middle-class Black women as they creatively balance home and career while raising their children in a dangerous world.

The characters are African American women in their late 30s to 50s. Those interested in auditioning should be prepared to participate in cold readings from the script and bring a completed calendar of potential conflicts. A perusal script is available for review in the ticket office during normal office hours; however, scripts may not leave the premises. The Ticket Office is open Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

The Mamalogues will be presented May 20-29 in the Bean-Brown Theatre. Rehearsals will begin on April 18 and are generally held 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. on Sundays, but the specific schedule will be set after casting.
