Trail of Tears Drama Auditions Scheduled

Auditions are being held for the Cherokee Heritage Center’s annual outdoor production of the Trail of Tears drama. The drama tells the legends, traditions and history of the Cherokee people with enthusiasm and spectacle. All roles are open for casting. Parts are available for a wide age range of actors. All roles will be paid, and most actors will be cast as multiple characters.

The auditions will be held Friday, April 1, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Saturday, April 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, April 3, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Tsa La Gi Amphitheater located on the grounds of the Cherokee Heritage Center. Actors are required to prepare a two-minute contemporary monologue, vocalists should prepare a one-minute presentation and all participants should bring resumes and headshots if available. While dancing is required for the production, dance auditions will not be held.

The Trail of Tears drama will run Thursday through Saturday evenings June 18 through Sept. 4. A special Sunday performance will be held Sept. 4 in recognition of the Cherokee National Holiday. The Trail of Tears drama, written by Richard A. Fields, will be directed by Roy and Barbara Rains.
