We are soliciting pre-audition files comprised of a 1-minute monologue in the style of the show – a period piece a la Americana, not overtly comedic.  Submissions will be accepted immediately until September 18th , and should be submitted as a video file along with the required audition forms to Audition Director Benjamin Roper at In addition, auditioners should sign up for a time slot at 1st round auditions, which will involve exercises to determine timing and rhythm, and potential cold readings.  There will be no cuts until after 1st round auditions are completed.

ACT1 Theater acknowledges the nature of theater due to COVID19.  This play was chosen specifically for its small cast size and ability to maximize social distancing during rehearsals; if we are not able to accommodate live audiences, we have plans for livestreaming or recorded video subscriptions… actors and crews should still have the fruits of their labor appreciated by the public.  We will have plans and procedures in place for rehearsals and performances to ensure the best possible healthy environment for our actors and audiences.
