Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. SUBMISSIONS DUE BY AUGUST 12th.
Please submit headshot, resume, and two videos – one monologue and one personal story told directly to the camera, as if talking to a close friend (these can be together on one video or two separate recordings… please no longer than a combined total of 5 minutes). Please use your name in the title of your submitted items (i.e. Jane Doe Resume, Jane Doe Headshot, Jane Doe Video 1)
Virtual callbacks will be held by appointment via zoom after August 12th. Callbacks will be readings from the script. Actors will be given a chance to read the script before callbacks, and can choose to not accept the callback for any reason without fear of repercussion or not being called back or cast in the future.
About the project: this currently untitled script was commissioned by Open Book Theatre, and is being written by local writer, performer and Kresge Artist Fellow Madelyn Porter. Directed by OBTC Artistic Director Krista Schafer Ewbank. All rehearsals and performances will be conducted entirely online. Performances will be live streamed.

The project is still in development, but slated to begin rehearsals mid-late August with performances beginning in September. There is flexibility with time for both rehearsals and performances, actors who are called back will be asked to give availability.
