Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or join the Mixed Revues Facebook page event to confirm your audition space. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. A one-minute contemporary dramatic monologue is optional.
Note: This play contains full nudity and strong language. No nudity is required for the above roles, but Coulmier’s and Madame Royer-Collard’s role include strong sexual content and Madame R-C does have one “suggestively” clad scene. Many actors will take this as a plus.
