Shorts Auditions

Auditions for our Annual Series of Short Plays will be held Thurs. Aug. 13 from 6:30-9p & Saturday Aug. 15 from 4-6pm at Riot Act, Inc’s Studio 305 in the Center for the Arts. 

Join us for Auditions!  Everyone welcome!

Annual Series of Shorts includes 3 plays with 3 different directors.  The performances will run in Riot Act, Inc’s studio Sept. 16-19.  Actors will work with individual directors to schedule rehearsal times.  Due to COVID19 the current plan is to have a very limited masked live audience and offer a live streaming.  Of course this may change as the pandemic unfolds.

This year, all three plays are the winners from our Annual New Play Festival.  You will have the opportunity to work with the playwrights during rehearsals.

Winning plays are:

#1 – Temp by Nicholas Dunn of Salt Lake City, UT.  Will be directed by Michael Jerome Johnson.

This play takes place in the basement of a business where 3 coworkers labor over scanning in paper files.  This is a fun, absurdist, metaphorical play.

#2 – Two Goddesses Walk into a Cowboy Bar by Gregory L. Wright of Teton Village, WY.  Will be directed by Samantha Kaufman with assistance from Michael Jerome Johnson and Macey Mott.

This play will require some intimacy including kissing and also some dancing.  You will not be asked to kiss in the auditions.

The play centers around 4 people who meet in a bar.  Are the women really goddesses?  A nod to The Oddessy gives this play a fun twist.

#3 – When Nana Hit the Glass by Rebecca Ryland of Clancy, MT.  Will be directed by Charlie Daveler.

This drama deals with grief, how we treat those around us, and is a bit of a coming of age story.

All three plays are excellent examples of our talented regional writing pool and Riot Act is excited for the opportunity to bring these new creations to life on the stage.  There are great roles for both men and women, young and old, and everyone in between!

Please bring to auditions your schedule of conflicts including work schedule through Sept. 19.  Due to COVID19, auditions will work a little differently than normal.  Please contact us to schedule an audition time.  We will provide masks at the studio for those who would like them.  If you are uncomfortable auditioning in person, we will offer a virtual option.  Please let us know your preference when you contact us about the audition time slot.  Otherwise please arrive at the beginning of your scheduled audition time.  If you are not able to make auditions but still would like to audition, please contact us to set up another time.  If you have a head shot and resume, please bring them.  If you would like to read the script before auditions, please let us know.

Hope to see you there!
