Auditions For Young Playwright's Festival
The Milwaukee Chamber TheatreÂ has announced auditions for its Young Playwrights Festival. This yearâ€™s festival (which hits the stage of the Broadway Theatre Center December 17 â€“ 20th) consists of a program of three short plays by area high school students.
Judging from the brief teasers for the three shorts available on the website, thereâ€™s some interesting stuff in here. One of the shorts features a conversation between Jesus and Satan at a hospital. Here's your chance to play a messiah or the devil in a script that MCT is referring to as "hilarious.". Itâ€™s directed by Bryce Lord, who has directed some really interesting stuff in the past. Thereâ€™s also a comic play set in a renaissance town. The script to that one is written entirely in verse. Sounds like fun. And then thereâ€™s a brother/sister thing where the spirit of the late sister is trying to contact her brother.
For the festival, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre is looking for Non-Equity actors only. Theyâ€™re looking for 5 women (teens to 40â€™s) and six men (teens to 60â€™s) for the show. Auditions are Saturday, October 17th from 11:00am â€“ 4:00pm. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Stage talent from past Young Playwrightâ€™s shows with Milwaukee Chamber have gone on to get work in regular Milwaukee Chamber shows. Thereâ€™s also the chance to work with directors like Bryce Lord, Sheri Williams Pannell and Carol Zippel. All actors in the show receive a small travel stipend.
