for 1,000 Hills by India Burton
As part of Cleveland Public Theatre’s Big [Box] Series

Cleveland Public Theatre’s Big [Box] series is hosting Heads Up Productions’ “gripping” 1,000 Hills1,000 Hills follows three tourists who find themselves in Rwanda just as genocidal violence breaks out.  As tensions mount, the tourists have their emotions and morals put to the test.  With genocide as a backdrop, the show asks the question:  What are our responsibilities to each other in a time of crisis?

Auditions for the play will take place in the Balch Street Theatre (home of CATAC and New World Performance Laboratory) located at 220 S. Balch St. in Akron.  The auditions will be held on Wednesday, November 2 beginning promptly at 8 pm.  Come prepared with an open mind and ready to move.  If you’re planning to attend the auditions email info@headsupproductions.net with your name, resume and a favorite photo of yourself. No other preparation is necessary.  Actors of ALL ethnicities are encouraged to audition.  If you would like to be considered for a role, but are unable to attend please email at the above address to set up an individual meeting.  The company is also seeking a stage manager who can play the djembe.

Performances will be held January 19-21 in Cleveland Public Theatre’s Levin Theatre.  However, all actors are working through Heads Up, not CPT.

Benjamin Rexroad, Heads Up Productions’ Managing Artistic Director, is directing the production.  Benjamin trained with Anne Bogart and the SITI Company during their 2010 summer intensive and won the 2011 Akron Arts Alive Award in the Rising Young Star/Leadership category.

The centerpiece of CPT’s season, Big Box provides local artists with the opportunity to create and produce new work. Over seven weeks, Big Box includes eleven world premiere workshop showings of theatre, dance, music and genre-defying performances.

Heads Up Productions is a theatre company based out of Akron, Ohio.  Heads Up Productions is an ensemble of young professionals who are seeking other artists who share our vision for creating theatre that stimulates and challenges both the audience and ourselves.  Visit 1,000 Hills’ webpage for more information.
