My name is Kelsey Gilchriest and I am directing a production of Tribes at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I am looking for a Deaf/HH actor to play the role of Billy. I am looking for someone who would be willing to relocate without pay. My school does not have any Deaf/HH actors, and I would like to portray Billy as authentically as possible.

If you are interested, PLEASE upload a video containing your name, where you are from, your age, and a 1-minute contemporary monologue in ASL, and another 1-minute contemporary monologue spoken and signed simultaneously. Casting will be happening on December 10th. The show will rehearse from January 14th until February 26th, and the performances will be from February 27-March 3.

I can provide housing if needed, and this show would be a great resume builder! Please email me if you have any questions! You can send me your video at
