CREATIVE CASTING: SPOTLIGHT ON ACTORS WITH DISABILITIES


Daryl “Chill” Mitchell

On Tuesday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m., the Eastern Region Equal Employment Opportunity Committee will present an exploratory reading of INTERNAL BLEEDING by Christine Toy Johnson, starring Daryl “Chill” Mitchell (television’s “Brothers”, “Ed” and “The John Laroquette Show”), directed by Robert McQueen. The reading will be the culmination of a short workshop exploring casting an actor with a disability (Mr. Mitchell) in a role that is written as both disabled and non-disabled. Afterwards, there will be a panel discussion about the results of the workshop. The event will take place on the second floor in the Audition Center of AEA, 165 West 46 Street, New York City. RSVP to Pearl Brady at 212-869-8530, ext. 346, or eeo@actorsequity.org.

The cast also features AEA members Ann Harada, Eddie Aldrich, Helen Farmer, Jaygee Macapugay and Ariel Estrada. Stage managing is Bruce Alan Johnson.

INTERNAL BLEEDING is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Additional funding has been made possible by the Puffin Foundation.
