    We're casting the lead role of Ella Sheppard (Black, 20) for our theatrical feature Steal Away, and are working to get the word out to as many Black actresses as possible. Breakdowns for Steal Away are out on Backstage as well as other breakdown services, but we very much also want the casting call to reach the many extraordinary young artists working predominantly in theatre.

    Ella Sheppard is a powerful role with a very strong dramatic arc for a young actress. In the Rev. Jesse Jackson's "enthusiastic" endorsement of Steal Away, he writes, "Though perhaps unfamiliar to some, Ella Sheppard was one of the greatest heroes the cause of Freedom has ever known. Her staggering courage and sacrifice saved countless Black schools from supremacist destruction, and her breathtaking story will captivate and inspire the world." We're casting several other roles as well.

    Steal Away is based on Andrew Ward's post-Civil War musical epic "Dark Midnight When I Rise." A three-minute story video and other information can be found at RealmPictures.co/steal-away-movie
