Auditions for Weekend of One Acts

Hershey Area Playhouse is holding auditions for its upcoming WEEKEND OF ONE ACTS

Auditions for our Weekend of One Acts will be held on June 10 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM at Hershey Area Playhouse. Each auditioner will be asked to read both a dramatic and a comedic monologue. Actors may bring their own 1-2 min dialogue or we will have monologues available to those auditioners who need one or both. Actors will be considered for all six shows unless they indicate otherwise.

Most shows run about 15-20 min (Comrades is a full 1 act pay about 35 min and Illumanti and Drama Libre is about 5 min but will require heavy physical acting) since the shows are much shorter that our mainstage shows, rehearsal time will be much less of a time commitment.  It’s a great way to fit acting into your busy schedule whether it’s your first time, or you are a veteran of the stage.

Show Dates are Friday Aug 19th and Sat Aug 20th at 7:30 pm
