Audition Description

Coco Queens - Set in a small town called Helena, Alabama, Coco Queens is a riveting play that forms an unbroken bond between four women as they navigate their way through deep-seated, sometimes painful challenges of love, forgiveness and black womanhood in the 1970s.

The Clipper - A baby shower, some wine and a garden of truths forces Joyce to decide if she will engage in her family or shrink from life altogether. With a granddaughter on the way and her Ex's Wedding on the horizon, Joyce must choose… Safety or Truth.

Bring headshot and resume. Sides for cold readings will be provided at the auditions.
There will be 3-4 rehearsals before the stage reading arranged between the directors and the actors cast.

This annual festival nurtures emerging and established playwrights to develop new scripts. Reading 100+ scripts a year, the New Works Literary Committee chooses two top plays to receive a stage reading with critical feedback from professional theatre critics and audience talk back.

As it is a stage reading, there will only be 3-4 rehearsals, and actors will not need to memorize their scripts. The stage reading of their show will only happen one night, and there will be a talk back with the audience after the reading.
