CHOIR BOY Auditions N0W!

Proud Mary Theatre Company is holding auditions for the play “CHOIR BOY” by Tarell Alvin McCraney.  The show will be directed by Clark E. Nesbitt, Independent Artist; Director/Actor/Producer.

For fifty years, Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is a highly respected institution dedicated to helping its’ students grow into “strong, ethical black men.” But what happens when Pharus does not fit the mold for a typical “Drew man?” Pharus is different from his peers, and his effeminate nature constantly sets him apart. Though he may be the leader and most talented member of Drew’s renowned gospel choir, he struggles to gain their acceptance and respect. “Choir Boy”, written by the Academy Award-winning writer of Moonlight, Tarell Alvin McCraney, is a moving story of sexuality, race, hope, gospel music, and a young gay man finding his voice.

McCraney also wrote the screenplays the 2019 film “High Flying Bird” and the highly acclaimed television series “David Makes Man.”
