Auditions for Not Someone Like Me by Susan Rice will be held Wednesday February 17 and Thursday February 18 from 7p-9p in Riot Act, Inc’s Studio in the Center for the Arts (or via Zoom).
Join us for Auditions! Everyone welcome!
February 17th and 18th Riot Act, Inc. will be holding auditions for its Not Someone Like Me. Performances will run April 23-25, 2021 in Riot Act, Inc’s Studio. The production will be directed by Deborah Supowit with Lacey Lukas assisting.
NOT SOMEONE LIKE ME is a play about sexual assault based on five true stories. On television and in film, the experience of rape is often sensationalized, exploited, and distant. Hearing these stories told by living, breathing women, in real time, has a vastly different effect. With each woman’s story, the play explores a common theme: speaking out turns victims into survivors, if not heroes. NOT SOMEONE LIKE ME aims to inspire audiences to tell their own stories—and put an end to the silence and the shame. ~Dramatist Play Service
There are roles for 5 women. Ages of characters vary from 20s to 80s. This play deals with a heavy subject matter of sexual assault. There will be a board member and/or artistic director who have been trained in staged intimacy on hand for all rehearsals and performances.
Please bring to auditions your schedule of conflicts including work schedule through April 23. 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, if you don’t have your own. 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.
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.
