Bay Street Theatre is hosting local auditions for three plays premiering over the summer during the Mainstage Season and a fourth production opening in the fall.
The auditions will take place on Saturday, March 8 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. Actors can audition for the three mainstage plays, “Conviction,” “Travesties” and “My Life is a Musical,” as well the Literature Live arts-in-education production of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Judging the auditions will be Bay Street’s new Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, joined by John Sullivan, associate producer, and Will Pomerantz, associate artist.
“The summer of 2014 at Bay Street is a season of art and revolution,” Mr. Schwartz said. “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 bring a resume with a photo stapled to it and prepare a monologue under two minutes. Those who would like to be considered for “My Life is a Musical” should prepare 16 bars of music to sing. An accompanist will be provided.
