This summer, Free Street rolls out (literally!) a new performance that celebrates joy, resilience, and every day miracles in Chicago. Based on stories collected all around the city, Los Milagros/The Miracles is a modern day pageant wagon play performed on modified Radio Flyer wagons. Often funny, always celebratory, Los Milagros/The Miracles asks how every day people are surviving hard times.
We are currently looking for collaborators of all ages to join the creative team that will develop this project over the next four months. Previous experience with theater or writing is not necessary. We are looking for people who want to develop their skills as storytellers, writers, facilitators, and performers. Above all, we are seeking collaborators with diverse points of view, who are comfortable working in neighborhoods across the city and who are invested in a politics of liberation. This is a four-month commitment with some modest pay, and lots of space to build, create and connect.
Auditions are Tuesday, May 2nd from 6:30 to 8:30pm. You do not have to prepare anything in advance, but you should plan to stay for the whole time – this is a workshop style audition where we will play, write, and talk together. Orientation for the project is Saturday, May 13th at 10am. Performances are July 24 and 27, August 1, 11, and 18. Rehearsals will be scheduled with the creative team.
