Auditions for Pam C. Dudley’s Breakfast, directed by Alysia Harris, will be held January 3 and 4 at the WLAC theatre on the main stage at 6:30pm.

Originally slated to be performed as a Reader’s Theatre Workshop earlier this year, the play will now be a full production to open February 17, 2022. Breakfast requires a diverse cast of various ages and ethnicities. To help get the word out about auditions, please share the details with anyone who you think might be interested in helping bring this important piece of theatre to life.

Breakfast is an intergenerational historical drama, set in Corsicana, Texas on the first day of school integration in 1970. With 17-year old Cora at the center, a series of interconnected, two person, one-act plays serve up the grits and grit of this small town coming of age story.
