Don’t be shy, you were born to be a star! Join us at open auditions for the locally written All’s Fair, by Sloane Henry, at the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre!

In All’s Fair by Sloane Henry, a couple reveal to one another that they are each in love with opposite members of their closest couple-friends. They hatch an Art-of-War-styled plan to break up the other couple to further their own romantic interests – until greater forces intervene. Funny, dark and poignant, All’s Fair navigates the labyrinth of contemporary romance in a whole new way, exploring love, partnership, and consequence of choice in the modern age.

Auditions will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday & Monday, January 7 & 8, at the theater– 619 South Main Street in the Baird Hardware complex, next door to Akira Wood and across from Heartwood Soundstage. You don’t have to be present both nights, but it doesn’t hurt. No prepared monologues required– expect cold readings from a provided script. Please also dress comfortably and be prepared to move!

Performance dates are Thursdays through Sundays, March 15-25, 2018.


Terra – F, 25-30. 5th grade teacher. Will’s girlfriend. Warm and kind, she lacks self-confidence, and has always been a bit jealous of Will’s friendship with Skylar.

Will – M, 25-30. A photographer who comes from money. Terra’s boyfriend. Cocky and self-assured, he’s not always aware of the people around him.

Skylar – F, 25-30. Chef. Axel’s girlfriend. Talented, strong, and successful, she’s bankrolling Axel’s education, but secretly harbors deeper feelings for Will.

Axel – M, 25-30. Law student. Skylar’s boyfriend. Supportive, reliable, and intelligent, he’d do almost anything for Skylar, but has deeper romantic feelings for Terra.

Narrator – M or F. The omnipresent chess-master.

Ages and genders are flexible, at the discretion of the director. All races, colors, sizes, genders, gender-identities and experience levels welcome! Although this IS an audition, we’re not judgmental, and we hope you feel welcome here and have a great time. If cast you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family.

We look forward to seeing you at auditions for All’s Fair!

Founded in 1980, the ART develops new talent, plays, audiences and ideas while also celebrating and revivifying the great plays of the past. The ART provides a safe place where people of all ages, genders, races, and beliefs can create unsafe theater– thinking people’s theatre– theater that transforms.

We continually respect, and challenge:

ourselves as actors, designers, artists and visionaries to achieve more,
our audiences as living, thinking and feeling human beings to engage more,
other local theaters and arts organizations to collaborate more,

…and by doing so, help nurture and develop Gainesville, Florida into the center of arts and culture in North Central Florida.

As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the ART is especially dedicated to providing multi-cultural opportunities to the members of our community. The theater is open to all and presents experiences for which there are no other venues in the area. It is also entirely volunteer-staffed and operated. (Want to join us?)
