Children’s Casting Call for EVERYBODY

Searching for a African American girl who can play 9 to 12 years old to be in the Coca Cola Stage Production of EVERYBODY, by Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins to be directed by Susan V Booth and Tinashe Kajese Bolden.


Inspired by a 15th-century morality play entitled Everyman, Everybody explores one of life’s greatest mysteries: Death, in a surprisingly hilarious and witty manner. The title character, Everybody, is told by Death that they will be taking the long journey towards the afterlife, in which they will have to give a presentation to God about their life. Everybody rushes to find anyone that they can take with them on this journey, and they go through many allegorical figures, including Friendship, Kinship, and Love. Everybody, as well as eight other roles, are decided by lottery every night.
