Don’t be shy, you were born to be a star!
Although we are a repertory company, we do hold open auditions for shows– and we’re about to hold auditions for our very own Gainesville Homegrown Local Playwrights’ Showcase and our original production of Hometown Knights!
The showcase will take place December 3-6 this year, and will include staged readings of a variety of locally written one-acts and full-length plays. Because these are staged readings, rehearsals are usually kept to a minimum. This is a great way to dip your toe in the water and acquaint yourself (or reacquaint yourself!) with the Acrosstown without the time commitment that a mainstage show usually requires.
Hometown Knights by Chuck Lipsig, the winner of 2014’s showcase, has production dates of Jan 15 through 31, 2016.
Auditions will be Sunday & Monday, November 8 & 9 at 7pm, sharp, at the Acrosstown– 619 South Main Street in the Baird Hardware complex (see map, below). You don’t have to be present both nights, but it helps. Expect cold readings from a provided script; dress comfortably and be prepared to move. Exact requirements are up to each director.
Although auditions, by their very nature, require that performances and their suitability to any individual role be judged, we won’t judge YOU (except maybe to tell you how awesome you are). You’ll find that the people here are very warm and welcoming, and happy to read with you, whether it’s your first time on stage or your thousandth.
