AUDITIONS: BLACK BOX NEW PLAY FESTIVAL, April 17-25

POLIKUSHKA by TJ Edwards
June 22-25, 2017

Gallery Players is holding open call auditions for its upcoming world premiere of POLIKUSHKA by TJ Edwards. Director, Francesca Di Cesare. Producers, Sue Glausen and Dominic Cuskern. The play is based on a Tolstoy short story and we are seeking many actors who can sing, move well and act. Actors will need to have a real collaborative spirit and enjoy working as an ensemble. Director is truly interested in a diverse, multi-ethnic cast. Please don’t be deterred by the fact that the play is based on a Russian short story. Non-equity only. No pay.
