We are looking for several actors to cast in our fall production of “Acting Up! 2018”, an evening of original, unpublished ten-minute one act plays. We have 10 amazing plays with casts of 2-5 actors each. Must be 16+ years of age or older. New and seasoned actors of all genders, ages and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Plays may contain adult language, content, and brief violence.
Actors will be asked to do a cold reading from one or more scripts. Actors are encouraged to arrive at 7:00 PM for optimal reading time for our 10 scripts but may arrive at any time prior to 8:30 PM. There will be 10 directors and some of the playwrights at auditions. Actors will be called upon to read for a variety of roles. Actors can choose if they would like to be considered for casting in one or two plays. Actors may not be cast in more than two plays.
Rehearsal schedules are at the discretion of the director and may be held at a location near to High Plains Community Center or at the home of a director or actor if desired. All days of the week (including weekends) and times may be considered when making the rehearsal schedules to accommodate the cast/director availabilities.

ABOUT ACTING UP!
Acting Up! is an evening of 10 ten-minute unpublished one acts by local and out-of-state playwrights. It is an opportunity for our playwrights to see the final product of their work produced on stage. It is also an opportunity for new directors to take risks in a safe environment while offering experienced directors an opportunity to try their hands at genres they may not normally come across in standard community theatre productions. This is our third year doing this production, and we have had huge success!
Just as important is you the actor. We have 10 scripts offering a wide range of characters and story arcs. Opportunities to stretch and experiment. Casts of 2 to 5, giving you occasion to take center stage.
