AMERICAN NIGHT: The Ballad of Juan Jose
written by Richard Montoya for Culture Clash

Cast size: 15-20

A play about a nation built on immigration and resilience, set in a dream state of someone studying for their citizenship exam.
In the cutting and wild satire of Culture Clash, Richard Montoya creates a ride through the heroic, horrifying and hilarious history of the United States. This reflects our modern world, showing tis country populated by the shadow people. This is a play for us ALL, that uses history to highlight the new world are living through RIGHT now.

The production will have a fully integrated ensemble of performers who will all play a variety of characters, periods, styles and will be onstage together throughout the piece. Specific part breakdowns will be developed and decided through the audition and rehearsal process. This is an opportunity to work and perform as an ensemble.

OPEN TO ALL PEOPLE- no experience needed, only the desire to tell these stories.
Students who are familiar as well as those new to the audition process and theatre in general are encouraged to audition.

Please prepare any piece of performance that shows your interest in storytelling and your desire to express yourself.
Choose a piece that you feel excited about sharing – it is an introduction, not a test.
Acceptable forms include traditional monologues- AND song, dance, stories, poems – anything you consider a performance piece that gives a sense of you.

Be prepared to share the piece and to talk with the director, and possibly to read from sections of the play.
