Auditions | April 2nd 4 PM - 9 PM

Green Room Theatre Company Coachella Valley is the only theatre company in the desert that won an Inland Empire Creative Corps grant. This grant funds the devising (development) of a new play about the controversial history of Section 14 in Palm Springs.

Interested actors must be a resident of the Inland Empire. There are a total of six roles available for male and female actors ages 16 to 90 of all races. The play is an elaborate staged reading, and no memorization will be necessary. Actors who are Indigenous, African American, or bilingual in Spanish or Tagalog are particularly encouraged to audition. 

Pay will depend on each actor’s start date. Those selected to attend weekly rehearsal meetings in April to help devise the play will be paid up to $ 3,000. Actors who join in May can be paid up to $2000.

About Section 14:
In the 1960s, the City of Palm Springs forcibly evicted hundreds of Black, Latino, and Filipino families from Section 14 of the Agua Caliente reservation, which developed into downtown Palm Springs around the Agua Caliente Sec-he Spa and Cultural Museum. The fire department bulldozed and burned many homes without compensation or housing options for displaced residents. The City Council has publicly discussed paying reparations to survivors and descendants but has not yet made substantial progress toward actual restitution.
