Dukesbay Productions is pleased to announce auditions for ANDELANA, Playwright – Roger Iverson, directed by Randy Clark.

Auditions will be held Sunday June 18 and Monday June 19 at the Dukesbay Theater located at 508 Sixth Ave. in Tacoma, WA 98402. Audition appointments will begin at 6:30pm.

ANDELANA, a 4-masted bark, sunk in Tacoma’s Commencement Bay in 1899, and remains at the bottom of the bay to this day. There were no survivors except one apprentice seaman who had sought medical treatment in town for an abscessed tooth.

But rumors swirled amidst this tragedy, talks of ghosts and a curse. Why did the ship, which had sailed around the world, suddenly sink while docked during a storm?

No witnesses saw the vessel sink, but it was said that some on board had feared the ship’s travels to other continents brought a curse on the Andelana. Part local history, part ghost story, ANDELANA explores this mystery and the some personal stories of the ship’s crew.

Auditioners are asked to bring a 1-2 minute monologue, if you have one prepared. If not, sides
from the script will be sent to all auditioners several days prior to be read at the audition.
Dukesbay Productions’ mission is to showcase the works of artists of all ethnicities. Actors from
