Teatro Vivo in conjunction with the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center and Script Works will present the Austin Latino New Play Festival April 21-23. 2011 This first annual festival will showcase three new plays (one per evening) by Austin playwrights, Raul Garza (Dos Pocitos), Erica Saenz (Blue Lightning Strikes) and Roxanne Schroeder-Arce (Mariachi Girl) in a workshop production format.
Parts are available for men and women ages 18-80+ and one role for an 8 -12 year old girl who can sing for Mariachi Girl, a musical for young audiences. Knowledge of Spanish for some roles is a plus but not required. Actors should prepare a comedic and a dramatic monologue. Each monologue should be 1-2 min. in length. Mariachi Girl will require auditioning actors to prepare a 1 minute acapella song.
Auditions are by appointment only. Email JoAnn at email@example.com or call 512 413-6791. Upon request a preview script of each production can be emailed prior the audition.
Other Important Info for Actors!The Austin Latino New Play Festival will take place at the new black box theatre at the MACC. 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 3-week rehearsal period with a director and work in conjunction with the playwright and dramaturge to develop the workshop production. The festival will be free to the community. There is no compensation for these workshop productions. Actors selected for this project will be considered for Teatro Vivo’s future main stage productions.
