As this is an abbreviated run of 6 Saturdays, we are holding auditions for only a limited number of new cast members (most likely 3, maybe 4) on February 10th and February 11th.
**We are specifically seeking new cast members from historically underrepresented groups/voices.**
The show is inspired by the PostSecret project, and is a mix of dramatic and comedic improv and everything in between.
For a good overview of the show, read the Austin Chronicle review from 2011: http://www.austinchronicle.com/arts/2011-01-14/austin-secrets/
Or have a look at the show page: http://www.hideouttheatre.com/shows/austinsecrets
The cast for this run of six shows will feature a mix of previous cast members and 3 or 4 new cast members selected through these auditions.
Some things we may cover in the auditions: doing dramatic scenes, intimacy, doing scenes based on secrets, subtext in improv, finding the love in scenes, and improvising with respect for the source material.
The main audition day will be Saturday, February 10th, sometime between the hours of 2 and 5pm. We are also holding the times of 4-8pm on Sunday the 11th in case a large number of people are not available on Saturday, or we need to have callbacks.
Please check all availability blocks that you can make, for maximum flexibility, and especially select Saturday blocks if you can make it work with your schedule.
