The Playwrights’ Center of San Francisco is holding auditions for our annual production of short plays. We casting an ensemble of 6-7 actors for PLAYOFFS: AUDIENCE FAVORITES SHOWCASE, our full production of 9 short plays (Nov. 2-11, 2017 at Exit Stage Left).
We are looking for a diverse set of actors for both our full production and our readings. All ethnicities, genders, ages, and body types encouraged! We have a specific need for a transgender female actor (late 20s-40s) for our PLAYOFFS ensemble.
PLAYOFFS: AUDIENCE FAVORITES SHOWCASE will run Nov 2 (preview), 3, 4, and 9, 10, 11 at 8 pm, with 2 pm matinees on Nov. 4 and 11, at the Exit Stage Left theatre. Rehearsals will be scheduled from mid-September through late October.
We cast the ensemble before casting the individual roles in the selected plays. Each actor appears in a minimum of two plays (usually more) and will generally work with more than one director. We have a developmental table reading on August 26 and finalize individual roles after that reading.
Rehearsals are workday evenings and weekend days starting with a table reading rehearsal in September. The specific rehearsal schedule is nailed down after casting has been completed and will be finalized by August 31. The stipend is $175.
