Auditions: Acting in a Professional Production

Event Date

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Acting in a Professional Production is a class offered once a year and gives students the opportunity to prepare, rehearse, and perform in a series of staged readings on the stage of the Washington Stage Guild, one of DC’s most respected theatrical venues.

You'll work with professional directors and actors as part of a core company of students playing substantial roles.

Issues explored in the class include the expectations involved in professional work, how to make strong acting choices within a compressed schedule, and the specific demands of staged readings versus full productions.

This session focuses on modern interpretations of the drama and mythology of the Greeks, by such playwrights as Mary Zimmerman, Anne Washburn, Sam Shepard, and Ellen McGlaughlin. Many roles for all types.


Auditions will be held on Tuesday, September 10 from 6-8pm at The Theatre Lab. Actors should bring one prepared contemporary monologue (not to exceed 90 seconds) and be prepared to cold read from sides.
