Company members are required to attend at least seven of the ten scheduled Second Saturday workshops in 2017. These members will have the opportunity to perform with each other on a regular basis over the course of the year, and will be responsible for creating an encouraging learning environment for new performers that attend Let’s Play! There will be opportunities to lead workshops, and get a hands-on experience in improv and ensemble work. Company members will also get first choice to participate in special projects and events that come up throughout the year (such as the development of new work or one night only events). Seven members will be chosen for the company through January’s audition process.

Let’s Play! is intended to further the skills and techniques of our local theater artists while introducing the community to basic performing concepts through theater education and hands on activity. Our company of actors makes Let’s Play! new and exciting each month.

Workshop Dates: The 2017 scheduled dates for Let’s Play! are: January 14th, February 11th, April 8th, June 11th, July 8th, August 12th, September 9th, October 14th, November 11th, and December 9th.

What to prepare:

60-90 second monologue
Be ready to do a few cold readings from scripts as well as some improv and warm up games.
Headshot & Performance resume (if available)

What to expect: 

We will begin with warm up exercises and improv games. Cold readings will be assigned after warm ups so actors may review them during monologues if they choose. We will see readings at the end. The entire audition process will take about an hour, depending on the number of actors auditioning.

What to wear:

Avoid clothing that might distract us from focusing on your performance and you. You will be expected to move a bit, especially in the warm up and improv part of the audition so please wear something you will be comfortable enough to move in.
