AWOL Announces Auditions

All Walks of Life and The City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs present A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and Directed by Jonathan Johnson.

“We are excited to be presenting and collaborating with DCA for our first annual Christmas show.This show we welcome everyone to come out and support this show.”Davena Jordan, AWOL’s Executive Director.

Auditions for A Christmas Carol will be held September 13, from 6-9pm at the Cultural Affairs Department’s S.P.A.C.E. Building (9 W. Henry St.) This production is open to all ages interested in acting, singing, writing,and dancing. Adult actors are also welcomed.

Directed by Jonathan Johnson, he has had the opportunities to work with youth and community theater artists from all over the Greater Savannah area since joining the organization in 2011 upon his completion of Graduate School at The Savannah College of Art and Design.

The mission of the organization is to promote and provide self-awareness through the use of Poetry, Hip Hop, and Life. This mission is accomplished by providing youth with safe and free after-school and evening arts-based educational programs. The organization’s main goal is to successfully develop youth in an environment that encourages respect, education, creativity and most of all non-violence. What began as a casual gathering of poets, musicians and emcees at Savannah State University in 1997 was incorporated as a non-profit group in September of 2004, a way for Founder/CEO Tony “Polo” Jordan, an emcee and probation officer, to compromise between his love of hip hop and his experiences helping troubled kids.
