Auditions set in Farmington Hills for student-written play

Anna Paints TreesAuditions will be held September 29 for “Anna Paints Trees,” a play written by participants in the Farmington Hills Cultural Arts Division Young Playwrights program.

Through the program, eight talented students in grades 7-12 worked under the guidance of award-winning playwright and author Stephen Mack Jones, and actor and director Ethan Kankula. Their finished project shares the realities of teen life – peer relationships, milestones in maturity, identity, and more.

Actors in grades 7-12, at any level of experience, may audition any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Costick Center, 28600 W. 11 Mile Rd. in Farmington Hills. There is no fee to audition, and actors must bring a recent school photo.

All materials will be available online at least two weeks prior to auditions. A world premiere performance is set Friday, November 30 at 7  p.m. To learn more, visit fhgov.com/youtheatre or call Jessica Guzman-Dunn at 248-473-1859.
