Upon request a preview script of each production can be emailed prior the audition.
Teatro Vivo in conjunction with the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center and ScriptWorks will present the Austin Latino New Play Festival April 5 – 7, 2012. This second annual festival will showcase staged readings of three new plays (one per evening). The plays chosen this year from submissions are Guapa by Caridad Svich, Cura by Raul Garza and Rosalia by Arthur Marroquin
The Austin Latino New Play Festival will take place at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 River Street (click for map). Each play will be presented in a workshop production format. This format is much more active and rehearsed than a regular play reading. The three separate casts of each production will have a 2-week rehearsal period with a director and work in conjunction with the playwright and dramaturge to develop the workshop production. There is a $100 stipend for actors selected. The rehearsals for these staged readings will take place Saturday March 24, 12 noon – 4pm, Monday–Thursday March 26-29, 6–9 pm and Monday–Wednesday April 2–4, 6 – 9 pm
Actors selected for this project will be considered for Teatro Vivo’s future main stage productions.
