Youth Play Looking for Actors

If you are between the ages of 8 and 18 and enjoy acting, come out to Antelope Valley Indian Museum and audition for our annual outdoor play. This year’s play, Owl and the Bear, is based on a traditional Chumash American Indian story.

Rehearsals will be every Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:00 pm starting on February 23. Auditions will be on the first day of rehearsal. The performance will be on a Saturday evening in May. The exact date of the performance will be determined after the cast is selected.

The history of theater at the museum dates back to 1932. Museum founder H. A. Edwards wrote an Indian pageant. It was performed outdoors, near the museum, annually from 1932 to 1935. Edwards’ drama students from Lincoln High School played the main roles, and local friends and neighbors played the secondary roles. Edwards named his outdoor stage Theatre of the Standing Rocks.

The museum is located at 15701 East Avenue M, in Lake Los Angeles, east of Lancaster, California.
