Want to act with us? We have auditions coming up in September!

Before signing up, please read the following information carefully:

  1. We require all of our actors to be in at least 1 year of recovery from drug and alcohol use. We understand that there are many different paths to recovery. For our actors, we define 1 year of recovery as 1 year of abstinence from drug use.
  2. If you do not have 1 year of recovery under your belt, we still want you to audition! We can talk about when you will reach the 1 year mark, and subsequently will reach out to you when you are eligible to start working with us.
  3. We strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQIA+, ages 18-25, and differently abled people to audition. We are looking to cast a diverse group of actors.
  4. You do NOT need to prepare anything for this audition, but you will be asked to share a brief summary of your addiction and recovery history.
  5. Please also block off Saturday 9/8 from 11am - 6pm AND Sunday 9/9 from 12pm - 6pm for rehearsals if you are selected.
  6. Compensation is $15/hr for rehearsal and $100/show. The shows you sign up for are up to you! Actors typically perform at 1-10 shows per month.

You can audition on one of two days:
Thursday, 9/6 10am-6pm
Friday, 9/7 10am-5pm.
Each audition will last about 45 minutes.
