Auditions for Shorts

Auditions for our Annual Series of Short Plays will be held Monday August 15 and Wednesday August 17 from 7-9p at Riot Act, Inc’s Studio 305 in the Center for the Arts. 

Join us for Auditions!  Everyone welcome!

Aug. 15th and 17th Riot Act, Inc. will be holding auditions for its Annual Series of Short Plays.

Annual Series of Shorts includes 3 plays with 3 different directors.  The performances will run in Riot Act, Inc’s studio Sept. 14-17.  Actors will work with individual directors to schedule rehearsal times.

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 – Gun Control by Stephen Lottridge of Jackson, WY.

After a threatening encounter at the Post Office, and an unpleasant meeting with Brad, his wife’s shooting instructor, Derek finds himself at odds with his wife, Melissa, about the use of weapons

#2 – Ship’s Log by Margaret Gordon of Jackson, WY.

The crewmembers of a space faring freighter examine what it means to be human and how far they’ll go for love.

 #3 – Love and Loss in Liberty Park by Joanne Rowland of Salt Lake City, UT.

Carolyn is longing to find a perfect mate and her friend, Judy listens and commiserates and eventually agrees that life worked out well even without the one true love.

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.  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.  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!
