The Contemporary Theater Company will hold auditions on May 19 from 6 pm - 10 pm on our performance patio for Bethel Park Falls by Jason Pizzarello, directed by Ryan Sekac (performances Aug 6-29), and The Tempest by William Shakespeare, directed by Chris Simpson (performances Oct/Nov).
All actors will receive a stipend.
Actors should prepare a 1-minute contemporary monologue (comedic or dramatic), and if you are auditioning for The Tempest a 1-minute Shakespeare monologue. Auditions slots will be 10-15 minutes. Email Sophie Pearson at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up! Please indicate in your email what time works best for you.
At this time, regulations indicate that performers will be masked for all rehearsals and performances. This may evolve as new guidelines from the state are available. The CTC will require all performers, staff, and volunteers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by July 1, 2021. Bethel Park Falls will be produced outside on our performance patio. The Tempest production details are pending based on both COVID-19 regulations from the state and the staff assessment of safety at that time.
No roles available for anyone under 16.
