ST. AUGUSTINE, FL -- Auditions will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21 at Limelight Theatre, 11 Old Mission Ave., in uptown St. Augustine.
The show will be staged Nov. 6 through Nov. 30 in the Koger-Gamache Studio Theatre (black box space) of Limelight Theatre.

Produced in conjunction with "Lift Up Lincolnville," Clybourne Park (2010) is a play by Bruce Norris written in response to Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun; it portrays fictional events set before and after the Hansberry play and is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago.
As described by the Washington Post, the play "applies a modern twist to the issues of race and housing and aspirations for a better life." The play was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.
Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Many rehearsals will be Saturdays (morning to late afternoon), Sundays (afternoon to early evenings), and Friday nights prior to the show run. The show will be directed by Jason Collins.
