Benedict College Holds Auditions for the Spring Theatrical Production of Our Lives Our Voices Our Music

Columbia, SC -- January 30, 2014 -- The Benedict College Fine Arts Department and The Theatre Ensemble will hold auditions for the Spring production of Our Lives Our Voices Our Music, a musical-drama written and directed by Benedict College Professor of Theater, Mr. Charles David Brooks, III. Auditions will be held on Wednesday - Thursday, February 5 - 6, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the Ponder Humanities and Fine Arts Center, Little Theatre, 1600 Harden Street, Columbia, South Carolina.

Our Lives Our Voices Our Music is a stimulating theatrical piece that combines spiritual compositions of song, drama, and dance. The play reveals ancient ancestral characters emerging from within the spirit world to enlighten man’s misdeeds on humanity. “From the earliest of time, our ancestral past has revealed a plan for resurrection and redemption.  It was as though our ancestors predestined that plan for us today to lift the veil and to open the third or cosmic eye for enlightenment,” says, Mr. Brooks.

This casting call will include auditions for actors, choral singers, praise dancers, musicians, and crew. Performers should be familiar with the cultural and spiritual creativity of the Harlem Renaissance. Auditions and call-backs will be held in Conference Room B (room 302) on the 3rd Floor of the Fine Arts Center.  

The production of Our Lives Our Voices Our Music is set to run April 8-13, 2014. For more information, please contact: Charles David Brooks, III at 803-705-4358 or email brooksc@benedict.edu.
