Attention, East End actors.
Bay Street Theatre will hold Equity Principal auditions for this year’s mainstage season—”Conviction,” “Travesties” and “My Life is a Musical”—and Literature Live’s production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” on Saturday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. at the Sag Harbor theater.
“The summer of 2014 at Bay Street is a season of art and revolution,” said Scott Schwartz, artistic director of Bay Street Theatre. “As the new artistic director of Bay Street and also as a new member of the East End community, I am deeply committed to making this theater a home for local artists. I hope everyone who is interested in working with Bay Street comes to these auditions, and I look forward to this opportunity to continue to get to know our artistic community.”
All actors should prepare a brief monologue under two minutes. Those who would like to be considered for musical productions should prepare 16 bars of music to sing. An accompanist will be provided. Bring a photo and résumé, stapled together, to the audition.
