Youth actors needed for performance at A.V. Indian Museum State Historic Park
February 29, 2020
Antelope Valley Indian Museum is seeking actors age 8 to 18 for the museum’s annual outdoor play based on a traditional California Indian story. Rehearsals are every Tuesday afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m. The performance will be the evening of Saturday, May 2.
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 to 1935. Edwards’ drama students from LA’s 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.
Pets are not allowed in the park. For more information, email Peggy.Ronning@parks.ca.gov or call (661) 946-3055 (711 TTY relay service). Visit our website at
