WHAT'S THIS PLAY ABOUT?

"Lady Alhambra," tells the story of Nila, an untrained medium of the Oyana Order who is forced to partner with a trickster spirit named Juracan, and fix a realm exchange portal she accidentally damaged while executing an unauthorized transcendence ritual in an attempt to reach her dead mother; all while singing and dancing at The House of Mambo Cabaret and reevaluating her unconventional relationship with the dysfunctional siblings who are running it.

WHAT AM I AUDITIONING FOR?

In-person Staged Reading
You are auditioning to participate in a writer's workshop with the playwright. "Lady Alhambra," is a new play that's currently being written. During the workshop, you will meet with the playwright over Zoom a total of four times for up to four hours each time to read and discuss drafts and revisions of "Lady Alhambra." The play will most likely not be finished, and the playwright will continually make changes based on the actors' input and interpretations.

IS THERE COMPENSATION?

Yes. Each actor will be paid $20 per hour for up to 12 hours in virtual workshop sessions that meet over Zoom, and $20 per hour for in-person staged reading for up to 3-hours.

WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I AM CONSIDERED?

After you submit a request to audition, if selected, you may be asked to participate in an informal Zoom call back to read parts of the play with the playwright and other actors beings considered. You can expect an email with an offer soon after that.

WHY DO I HAVE TO BE A RESIDENT OF KENTUCKY OR HAVE TIES TO KENTUCKY?

The majority of the funding that has made this production possible comes from a grant sponsored by the Kentucky Foundation for Women and Kentucky Residents that support the arts in Kentucky, and for that reason the playwright prefers to put most of the money invested on this project into the hands of *Kentucky artists.


  • To learn more about the KFW grant, visit their website or Click Here for a link directly to the playwright's grant award page.

  • *For the purposes of this production, a Kentucky artists is not only one that fits the "legal definition", but also someone who has made Kentucky their home after relocating or immigrating there. Production also understands that some Kentucky artists may have relocated to places like LA, NYC, and Chicago, but continue to identify as Kentucky artists. That's why there's a question about having Kentucky ties and not strictly having to reside in Kentucky.
