‘Shattered Ceilings’ auditions set for next week

SEQUIM — Auditions for a reading of “Shattered Ceilings” will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

The play will be performed at the Dungeness Schoolhouse on 2781 Towne Road on March 18 as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Clallam County League of Women Voters. Performances will be at 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Stage and television actress, Sequim resident and League of Women Voters member Carol Swarbrick Dries will direct the play.

“ ‘Shattered Ceilings’ is a play about women who worked hard to get the right to vote in 1920, and the formidable women who kept working through the decades since that time to maintain the goals of our forefathers,” Dries said.

“I am anticipating finding community members to fill these fascinating roles that portray real people: Shirley Chisholm; Bella Abzug; Alice Paul (a younger suffragette); Betty Ford; Fannie Hurst; a 19th century female slave; and a male announcer of any age.”

This is a reading, so no memorization will be required.

The rehearsals will number no more than six and will be set to suit the availability of the cast members.

Those interested should contact Dries at 360-681-3862 to set up an audition time or for information.

In addition to the performances of “Shattered Ceilings,” other activities are planned at the Dungeness Schoolhouse that day from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Community members are invited to take part in organizing the event and the League is looking for businesses to advertise in the program.

The League of Women Voters, a national nonpartisan organization founded in 1920, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Membership is open to anyone age 16 or older. The League of Women Voters Clallam County was established in 1968.
