The Essential Theatre will hold non-union General Auditions for the 2012 Essential Theatre Play Festival on Saturday, March 10, from Noon till 5:30 p.m. Auditions will be held on the top floor of the building that Horizon Theatre is located in (1083 Austin Avenue N.E., Atlanta, GA 30307.) WE WILL NOT BE IN HORIZON THEATRE, simply in the same building they are in, in a room directly across from Horizon’s office, which you’ll find as soon as you get to the top of the stairs. Prepare two contrasting contemporary monologues (whichever contrast you prefer) not running more than 4 minutes in total length. To make an appointment, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-212-0815 (we prefer e-mails). Our mailing address is Essential Theatre, 1414 Foxhall Lane #10, Atlanta, GA 30316. Our website is www.EssentialTheatre.com.
The 2012 Festival will run from July 6 – August 5 at Actor’s Express, three World Premiere shows running in rotating repertory (with separate casts). All roles will be paid with a stipend. The three shows are EVELYN IN PURGATORY by Topher Payne, BAT-HAMLET by Jordan Pulliam, and THE LOCAL, a collaborative theatre project being developed by Ellen McQueen. Scripts for EVELYN and BAT-HAMLET can be viewed at http://www.essentialtheatre.com/2012_Scripts.htm. We will be looking for actors and actresses in a wide range of ages.
