The director of Life Lessons, the world premiere of the play based on the book, The Lakota Way, needs 10-12 international students, family members, faculty or staff to participate in the show.

“I need folk to just sit on the stage and watch the show, while listening to the narrators,” says Jeanne Stanley. “They will wear the customary dress of their country. I also need between seven and eight people to read narration during the show onstage. We each aspire to certain virtues — these are Lakota stories that illustrate them. The point is to illustrate that people of all nations aspire to conduct themselves with honor, wisdom, love, bravery … the oversized book that each narrator reads from makes the performance more comfortable for those who are a little concerned about being onstage.”
If you or someone you know is willing to step up and represent your nation, please contact Jeanne Stanley at The show opens Nov. 9 and only two weeks of rehearsal will be needed.
