We are soliciting new work for premiere productions. If the piece has previously received a fully-realized production, do NOT submit.

 

Each script must include a title page with name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Please do NOT list your name anywhere on the monologue itself.

The 2013 Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions will take place on Monday, February 25th, 2013, from 9:30am to 6:30pm, at Milwaukee Repertory Theater.  This is a Locals Only audition – only Non-Union actors that do not require assistance with travel and housing should attend.

We will be implementing an in-person sign-up process for this year’s auditions.  On Saturday, January 26, 2013, from 9:00am to 12:00 Noon, interested actors will be able to sign up in person for the 2013 Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions outside of Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Cabaret Theater – www.milwaukeerep.com/planvisit/directions.htm – on the 2nd floor of the Patty & Jay Baker Theater Complex, accessible via elevator or via the escalator near building security.

There will also be 25 Waiting List slots available.  Sign-up for these slots will occur in the same manner as outlined above.  Obtaining a Waiting List slot does not guarantee an audition, but preference for any slots that open at a later date will be given to those actors on the Waiting List.

Should there be audition or waiting lists slots available after this sign-up period, they will be made available via an additional in-person sign-up at The Rep’s administrative offices.  Additional details will be announced at www.milwaukeerep.com/about/actingauditions.html should any slots remain.

  2. One classical monologue (preferably Shakespeare)
  3. One musical theater selection – 60 to 90 seconds in duration.  An accompanist will be in attendance.

Please note that the actor’s introduction and any time necessary to communicate with the accompanist will count as part of the 4 minutes.  Please prepare and time your selections carefully, as actors who exceed the audition time of 4 minutes will be stopped.

Non-Equity actors should plan to bring 25 headshots/resumes.  Actors who choose to audition with a musical theater selection and desire accompaniment should come prepared with sheet music.

The focus for this season’s monologues is: “The Love that Changed My Life.”

GUIDELINES FOR PLAY SUBMISSION
• We are soliciting new, original monologues between two and ten minutes long. Since the festival will include ten to twelve monologues, it is important that each one require as little production as possible; set-pieces, props, or effects needing set-up, strike, or special technical support may disqualify an otherwise excellent submission.

• The plays should be inspired by the theme: “The Love that Changed My Life”

• Scripts should be a maximum of eight pages long, double-spaced, using a standard format (twelve point font), and be written for a single actor to perform. (Please read it aloud and include the approximate performance time on the first page of your submission; all lengths of up to ten minutes will be considered, with the objective of choosing monologues of varying lengths).

• We do not accept musical submissions, adaptations, or children’s plays.

• Keep in mind that you are writing for the stage – pieces must have dynamic, dramatic structure

• Each playwright may submit up to two scripts with no fee. For each additional script, there is a $5 reading fee, payable by check to Forward Theater Company. Checks may be sent to Forward Theater Company, PO Box 14574, Madison, WI 53708.

• We are looking to mount premiere productions of submitted monologues. If the piece has previously received a fully-realized production, please do NOT submit. Monologues that have been given public readings are allowed.

• Each manuscript must include an additional title page with name, address, phone number and e-mail address. Please do not list your name anywhere on the monologue itself.

• You may submit via e-mail ONLY to info@forwardtheater.com. Please use the subject line “monologue festival.”

• E-Submissions will be accepted until midnight (central time) on October 1, 2010.

• Entries will be acknowledged by e-mail once they have been received. Due to the volume of scripts we are unable to offer criticism or return any submissions.

• The winning scripts will be announced on our web site, on or before November 30, 2010.

• Writers will be credited in all marketing and playbill materials; no royalties will be paid for performance. Monologues will be individually rehearsed and coached by the director until the week of the performance when the entire company will rehearse at the Overture Center.
