August 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on August 12, 2023 at 10:00 am

TIME: Tuesday, August 8 from 6:00-8:00pm or Saturday, August 12 from 10:00am-2:00pm (auditioners need only attend one day)
The production will be presented with cabaret-style seating, food, and drinks, in the theater.
Auditioners should prepare a short comic monologue no longer than 2 minutes, if possible. There will be printed monologues available for anyone who needs one and time will be allowed to prepare. There will also be cold scene readings from the plays to be performed. One audition will serve for all plays. Since these shows run from 15 to 25 minutes and have small casts, rehearsals will most likely be once weekly for most actors.
Performances will run from October 6-14. For more information, contact producer Greg Marsankis at (207) 322-9867, email us at info@belfastmaskers.com, or visit belfastmaskers.com/pages/auditions.
