SPARE Productions 'Almost, Maine' Auditions
Admission: FREE
Detail: SPARE Productions is seeking talented, motivated actors to be a part of our winter 2015-2016 production of John Cariani's 'Almost, Maine'. This is a touching, amusingly poignant play with a flexible cast size, and we are willing to accommodate you! 'Almost, Maine' will be performed January 8, 9, and 10, 2016. Rehearsals will start a few weeks before that, and will be scheduled around college break schedules and major holidays. Expect to come in ready to work and make awesome art! We will be accepting video auditions only for this show. Video submissions are due Saturday, October 17th. Please upload your videos as UNLISTED videos to YouTube (setting the privacy to unlisted will prevent anyone without the link from viewing your video) and send a link to your video to director@spareproductions.org with the subject line ALMOST MAINE AUDITION. Auditionees should submit a video with a two-minute monologue. Please film yourself using a stationary camera positioned so your entire body is visible. (This isn't a glamour shoot, and body language is an important component of acting.) In addition to submitting your video, please fill out this online audition form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FcxK2ZNFPQ76VywGNCf9y_1H6vUW3u7EwP4jAnRuG_8/viewform From the Dramatists Play Service: On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream. Note that this play will have a very short rehearsal period, so actors will be expected to come into the first rehearsal with their lines completely memorized. Auditionees are encouraged to check out the play ahead of time at almostmaine.com. We would love it if you joined us for our winter play! For more information, please contact info@spareproductions.org. SPARE Productions is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization (tax identification number 46-5553724) under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
