Fall 2015 auditions

The Playwrights’ Center of San Francisco will be holding general auditions for the Fall Season Developmental Reading Series.  Join us for this 35 year tradition of helping local playwrights develop new work in the bay area!  We would love to see you there! 

The plays this Fall are three full-length scripts by PCSF member playwrights that will receive Developmental Readings.   PCSF offers two types of readings for the Reading Series:

  • Staged Readings, which receive 3-4 rehearsals with a director and are staged with script in hand.  Rehearsals for staged readings are workday evenings and weekend days as arranged by the director and playwright.  Actors are paid a $20 stipend for Staged Readings.
  • Developmental Readings, which are not rehearsed or directed.  Scripts are distributed roughly one week prior to the reading and the producer and playwright provide some limited direction and notes prior to the reading.  Actors are paid a $15 stipend for Developmental Readings.
Developmental Readings this Fall include:
  • The Puzzle Home by Conrad Panganiban (Sept. 28)
  • The Beast And Mr. James by Christopher Bernard (Oct. 5)
  • I'd Rather Be Dead by Matthew Miller (Oct. 12)
Audition Details:
  • Variety of roles Male and Female, all ages 18+, ethnicities, body types encouraged!!!
  • Non-AEA only
  • Prepare (2) contrasting 1 min contemporary monologues.
When:
  • Monday, August 10, 2015, 6-9pm
Where:
  • Shelton Theatre 533 Sutter Street SF (downstairs)
