FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

California State University, Dominguez Hills, to host auditions for bold comedy about gender bias in raising children

California State University, Dominguez Hills will hold auditions Tuesday, December 5, and Wednesday, December 6, for "BOY," an original play that takes a farcical look at gender bias in raising children.

Directed by Bill DeLuca, professor, Theater Arts, the work by playwright Diana Son includes roles for seven men and six women ranging in age from 20-45. In addition, the production needs a special actress to play the role of BOY. In the first act, she plays a 12-year-old child, outgoing and confident and the leader of "townie" kids. In the second act, the role shifts to a girl who appears 18, restrained and shy but also quietly elegant. In both, the actress has the same shorter-than-shoulder-length hair.

Presented by the Department of Theater Arts, the production of BOY by CSU Dominguez Hills will make its first appearance at CSU Dominguez Hills March 9-18, 2001.

Scripts and further information can be obtained by contacting the Department of Theater Arts at (310) 243-3588.
