Audition Notice for YANKEE DAWG YOU DIE by Philip Kan Gotanda
The Elite Theatre Company is proud to announce auditions for its upcoming production of Yankee Dawg You Die, a drama by Philip Kan Gotanda, directed by Jolyn Johnson, on The Elite's South Stage, September 8 – October 1, 2023. Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm. There will be a special Thursday night performance on September 28.
Long before "Crazy Rich Asians" or "Everything Everywhere All At Once," Philip Kan Gotanda explored being Asian in Hollywood in "Yankee Dawg You Die." In this play, two Asian-American men struggle to find a space in Hollywood in the 1980s: Bradley Yamashita is brash, outspoken, and opinionated; Vincent Chang is a survivor of Old Hollywood stereotypes, trying to remain regal and honorable. Bradley and Vincent's unlikely friendship--as they talk of life, love, and Tinseltown--shows that generational divides might not be as wide as we think.
Auditions will be held at The Elite Theater Company, 2731 Victoria Avenue, in Fisherman's Wharf at the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, California, at 6-9pm on Thursday, July 6, and noon-3pm on Saturday, July 8, 2023. Callbacks, if necessary, will take place at 2-5pm on Sunday, July 9. All these sessions will take place at The Elite Theater Company, 2731 Victoria Ave, Oxnard, CA 93035.
Performers auditioning are requested to bring headshots and resumes to the audition.
Audition participants must present proof of vaccination and booster against COVID-19.
