The Mountaintop
by Katori Hall
directed by Ron Heller


Saturday, November 30th & Sunday Dec 1st
(time will be announced later)


CHARACTERS  

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Male, age 38, African-American.  Physical/facial resemblance to the real Dr. King is not required.  The actor in this role must be able to portray both the determination and devotion of a man who knows he has the responsibilities that come with being a larger-than-life symbol to millions of people, and the weariness and doubt of a man who knows he is only human.
 
Camae: Female, 20s or early 30s, African-American.   Proud, sassy, strong, independent – but with occasional flashes of self-doubt or vulnerability showing through.  Not based on any specific real person.    
 
General note: Actors are encouraged to read the script before auditioning.  Playwright Katori Hall has described this play as a portrayal of Dr. King “warts and all” – a great hero and great leader, but with human weaknesses.  Some people have found this offensive. 


Rehearsal commitment is from January 6th through opening on February 14th
Show runs February 14th - March 8th, 2020
