Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park seeks actors, ages 8 to 18, for the annual outdoor play based on a traditional California Indian story. Rehearsals will be every Tuesday afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m. starting on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The performance will be the evening of Saturday, May 2. Rehearsals and the performance will be held at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park, 15701 East Ave. M, Lancaster.

The history of theater at the museum dates back to 1932 when museum founder Howard A. Edwards wrote an Indian pageant, which was performed outdoors near the museum, annually from 1932-1935. Edwards' drama students from Lincoln High School played the main roles, and local friends and neighbors played the secondary roles. Edwards named his outdoor stage Theatre of the Standing Rocks.

Directions: From the 14 Freeway in Lancaster, go east on Avenue K to 150th Street East. Turn right and go south for two miles to Avenue M. Turn left and go east on Avenue M for one mile to the museum.

Antelope Valley Indian Museum SHP exhibits more than 3,000 rare objects from the Antelope Valley, California coast, Great Basin and the Southwest. The Antelope Valley was an important four-way trade route at least 4,000 years ago. The trade route enriched the material and social resources to Antelope Valley residents, allowing large villages to develop near the valley's springs.
