Auditions - More Light: Douglass Returns


Audition Notice

For role of William Penn Roberts, 20s-40s
A descendant of the Roberts Family Settlement, the first historic settlement of free people of color in Hamilton Co.

Following a successful premiere in 2017, ASANTE CHILDREN’S THEATRE AND CONNER PRAIRIE will reprise More Light: Douglass Returns. This full-length play by Celeste Williams was inspired by the historic return to Indiana by Frederick Douglass in 1880. He was cheered at a political rally in Noblesville after being nearly killed by a mob in Pendleton in 1838. The play connects to the local history of the Roberts Settlement, the first mixed-race settlement in Hamilton County. This return of More Light also coincides with Frederick Douglass’ bicentennial celebration year.
