“The Wolves” comes to PPCC

By Camille Liptak – Staff Writer

Female warriors, unite! PPCC’s Theatre Department is holding auditions for its fall semester production of “The Wolves.”

Navigating the big questions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness through the lens of nine adolescent soccer players, “The Wolves” by Sarah DeLappe was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Following the success of “Trojan Women” in last spring’s theatre production, director and PPCC instructor/theatre chair, Sarah Shaver is excited to again feature a female-focused play. 

“We have so many amazing women in this department and not enough roles to go around,” Shaver said.

While “The Wolves” centers on a high school soccer team, the authenticity and unabashed conversations in the play make the characters — and the themes — instantly familiar.

“It’s a play for right now,” Shaver said. “It’s relevant, urgent, and real.”

Shaver is looking for nine people who look like teenage girls and have some athleticism or who can learn, and one soccer mom to cast in the all-female ensemble.

Auditions run Saturday Sept. 14th (noon – 4 p.m.) through Sunday Sept. 15th (noon – 2 p.m.), and are open to current and former PPCC students. All ethnic backgrounds are welcome and are encouraged to audition. Walk-ins are welcome.

For more information or to schedule an audition, contact Sarah.Shaver@ppcc.edu.
