NRACT ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS FOR BOURBON AT THE BORDER

NRACT is excited to announce auditions for the Regional Premier of Bourbon at the Border by Pearl Cleage

Director: Natasha A. Jackson
Stage Manager: Shereatha Terry

Synopsis

As college students at Howard University, Charlie and May participated in the massive voter registration drive in Mississippi known as “Freedom Summer” 1964. This was also at a time where the Ku Klux Klan, police and state and local authorities carried out a series of violent attacks against the activists, including arson, beatings, false arrest and the murder of at least three people. Charlie and May had no idea that this experience would change their lives forever. Rose and Tyrone have no idea the demons that haunt their friends due to their participation in this civil rights movement that has now been largely forgotten.
