For Your Eyes Only
Location: Philadelphia, Pa
Chosen Writa Productions is currently casting for a non union theatrical production entitled “For Your Eyes Only.” This is a story about a former drug dealer who was saved from death only to discover his true purpose in life at an inner city bus stop. I feel that this story will be able to relate and translate to the times we are going through in today’s society.
However, There is no compensation if cast. In lieu of compensation, you will gain more experience and will be getting exposure. There will be three shows in October 2019 at The Proscenium Theater at The Drake. Rehearsals will begin July 13th and every Saturday after that from 9am -12pm until October 10th. We will also add additional Tuesday rehearsals when we get closer to the performance date.
If interested please send your resume, headshot, and video audition to Isaac.CahoeJr@gmail.com.
Please introduce yourself and explain your interest in this role. Recite a one minute monologue of your choice. Prepare a song(at least 16 bars of appropriate music) *Optional for singers*
