Voices Matter
by Emily Kathleen

Jan. 18 - Jan. 25

The show focuses on these topics: Social Issues, Education System, Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Mental Health, Disabilities and Learning Disabilities such as Dyslexia.

Because of a cancellaton, casting a male non-union theatre actor for "Voices Matter," a non-paid but professional reel footage from live show. Note: Non union.

 Opportunity for those looking to grow as an artist and work with fellow artists who truly love art. Rehearsals start first week of January (after the holiday) through end of March before March 26th show . Mandatory one-two times a week of rehearsals two -three hours max per rehearsal. Will do rehearsals around you and co stars schedules. This is a great creative opportunity to focus on your craft as an artist.

Script features two male actors for my April 23, 2021 theatre show called "Voices Matter" with my company Creative Collaborations. The plays focus on the following topics so it may not be a good fit for some actors. This project is mainly for those who are passionate about raising awareness to these topics and want to offer education to the audience. 

ACTOR No. 1 - "Husband"

One male actor 20's- 30's for a drama; this character is kind, compassionate, understanding, patient, loves his wife in spite of her flaws; he is sensitive, yet bold; he wants to have a baby with his wife; his wife has been through some trauma in life and with the pandemic of Covid-19 she is afraid to bring a child into this world and wants them to stop trying to get pregnant; she is afraid of the world; the husband isn't afraid of the world so his role is crucial to showing that there's goodness in this world.
