To schedule your audition, go to: 

You will be asked to upload a headshot (a JPEG file) and a theatrical résumé (a PDF file) if you have one. If you don’t have either of these files you can still submit the form.

Please prepare a one-minute "heightened-language" monologue. Experience with musical performance, dance, stage combat or other specialized entertainment skills (juggling, acrobatics, comedy, prestidigitation) is a bonus!

This is a collaborative, outdoor production playing in Twin Cities area parks and other outdoor locations throughout the month of June, 2020. The production will run between 75 and 90 minutes. We encourage gender-neutral casting and are open to providing theater opportunities to all types and skill levels. 

Each actor will receive a guaranteed $100 stipend, and a portion of the profits at the conclusion of the run.

Have your calendar handy and be prepared to enter rehearsal conflicts.
