Youth Auditions

Anacostia Playhouse announces auditions for young actors for our spring youth production!

We are excited to announce this year we will be partnering with REACH Incorporated, a program of professionally-led teen tutors who have published 21 books through their own publishing arm, Shout Mouse Press. Our young actors will be bringing their young authors’ works to life adapting 4-5 of these short stories for the stage. Our director this year is Thembi Duncan, a long-time friend of the Playhouse who directed Yellowman for us in our 2016 summer season. She was also lead teaching artist at Ford’s Theatre, and Creative Programs Director at Young Playwrights’ Theater, with tons of experience bringing young people and their stories to the stage. Thembi is an actor, writer, performing artist and teaching artist and we are super excited to have her on board
