Ghostlight Ensemble asks questions that challenge the status quo

Ghostlight Ensemble is seeking a Dialect Coach for its fall production of Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones. Alabama Story is based on the true story in the 1950s about an Alabama State Librarian facing an effort to ban a children’s book about a white bunny and a black bunny who get married. This is a timely and moving story that weaves together historical occurrences with fictional characters to drive home the real-world implications of censorship and book-banning that we still face today.

Dialect Coach will be available for direct dialogue sessions with actors via zoom or in-person, as well as attend select in-person rehearsals as agreed upon with production manager and director.
