“Ta’zieh – Between Two Rivers,” directed by Nikoo Mamdoohi, runs April 27-29.
Auditions are January 30 and 31, 6-10 p.m. at the Curtain Theater, with callbacks on February 1 and 2.
A Ta’zieh starts with a procession: live music, costumes, bystanders drawn into the celebration. This Iranian tradition has evolved into a worldwide event that brings people together to work through community struggles and clashes through music, drama and spectacle.
Ta'zieh is open to theater majors & community members of all ages, race, ethnic origin, ability, sexual orientation or gender identification.
