Schedule an Audition

Email with the date and time you'd like to audition. Walk-ins also welcome so feel free to come without appointment. Be prepared to stay up to an hour, and bring a photo of yourself if you can (any photo!) - no big deal if you can't!

At the audition, you will be asked to fill out an audition form with general contact info and conflicts (i.e. work/school schedule), and you will be able to choose a short piece from the play to read for the directors. You are also welcome to come with a prepared monologue to audition with - but this is not required.

*Auditions are casual*

Performance Schedule

All performers must be available for tech/dress rehearsals the evenings (6:30-10:30pm) of April 13th-April 16th, and Performances April 17th-26th at Mixed Blood Theatre.

All performers will work with the local directing team (featuring Marcela Michelle, Dua Saleh, Ayesha Adu, Eshay Brantley, Katie Burgess, Xander Cavanagh, and Rosey Lowe), and rehearsals will be scheduled based on performer availability. Most pieces will only need to rehearse a handful of times before the performances, so there is not a big commitment until showtime.

All performers cast in the show will be paid $100 minimum guaranteed stipend.
