General Ticket Info
Walk-ups are always welcome, and tickets are usually available at the door. But some of our limited engagements will sell out quickly. We all know it’s better to be safe than sorry, am I right? On this VERY page you’ll be able to make it happen.
Salvage Vanguard Theater announces open auditions for the world premiere of Casta by Adrienne Dawes. Casta will be directed by Jenny Larson and feature music by Graham Reynolds. Casta is inspired by a series of casta paintings by Miguel Cabrera, a mixed-race painter from Oaxaca. Casta paintings were a unique form of portraiture that grew in popularity over the 18th century in Nueva España/colonial Mexico. The paintings depicted different racial mixtures arranged according to a hierarchy defined by Spanish elites. When a lowly apprentice is commissioned to paint a casta series for a wealthy patron, he tries to conform his work to a set hierarchy. The images revolt, illuminating a complex portrait of fluid Latinx identities. Type of Actor(s): Roles Available**: 1 Female Ensemble, 3 Male Ensemble.
