Triton College to Hold Auditions for Waiting for Lefty

Triton College’s Performing Arts Department will hold auditions for the production of Waiting for Lefty by Clifford Odets, Aug. 25-27 and Sept. 1-2.

Auditions will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. each day in Room J-108 in Triton College’s Fine Arts Building, 2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove. Callbacks will be held Sunday, Sept. 3. Auditions are open to Triton students, faculty, staff and community members.

Director Andrew Gallant is seeking actors of all ages, types and experience levels. Actors will read selections from the play which will be provided at the audition.

Waiting for Lefty, Clifford Odets’ visionary play, tells the story of New York cab drivers on the verge of a strike. Be in the meeting hall as ordinary people fight to wrestle their livelihoods back from the brink of oblivion. Full of humor, passion and fire, Waiting for Lefty is a classic play that explores the timeless American question: What happens when we get pushed too far?

The staged production will have six performances: Nov. 3-5 and 10-12, 2017. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
