    Stages Theatre Company and the Capri Theater are accepting video auditions of ADULT ACTORS for the regional premiere of All American Boys, by Jody Drezner Alperin and Vicky Finney Crouch and based on the book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely.

    The lives of two high-school boys, one black and one white, powerfully intersect after they are thrust into the center of a violent act of racism. Unfolding through the boys alternating perspectives, the story follows their journey as they grapple with the devastating impact of racism as it reverberates through their families, school, and town.

    Directors’ Statement:

    “All American Boys deals directly with police violence. It is our desire as directors to ensure that actors, designers, and crew involved are able to tackle this traumatic material in a way that does not re-traumatize anyone involved. We ask that those interested in participating in All American Boys recognize and embrace the multiple generations of artists who will create this piece together.

    At its core, All American Boys is a story of personal resilience and communal resilience; we will do the necessary work to create a rehearsal process that bolsters and celebrates the strength and resilience of our communities. We have no interest in depicting Black pain for the benefit of white audiences.

    We mourn George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Philando Castile, and countless others who have been murdered by police. It is our hope that this production will be an opportunity for conversation and healing around the pain of police violence that continues to harm our communities locally and beyond.”
