FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Community Invited To Audition Sept.

Carson, CA –The
California State University, Dominguez Hills Department of
Theatre Arts is holding auditions for its second production
of the 2007-2008 season, the result of The Dominguez Bridge
Project, an ambitious undertaking to gather 40 years of faculty,
staff and student remembrances. The research has culminated
in the play “The Little College on a Hill,” written
by CSUDH alumnae Brenda Killian and Naomi Buckley. The play
will be presented on the University Theatre stage from Nov.

Director Bill DeLuca, professor of theatre
arts at Dominguez Hills, encourages community members to

that will change the rest of his life.
