Seeking a wildly diverse cast for nine new short plays at the Broom Street Theater.

Unpresidented is a collection of new works to be performed in October 2018. Ranging from quirky to lyrical to kinky, the plays travel through time and bend reality, looking at the office of the American presidency from many different angles.

Auditions will be held at the Wil-Mar Center at 953 Jenifer Street on the following dates:

Thursday, July 26
6pm - 8pm

Friday, July 27
6pm - 8pm

Please arrive at 6pm and plan to stay for the whole two-hour audition time on the date you choose. Most actors will be cast in multiple roles and will need to read with several other actors.

If neither of these dates works, please contact Maria Dahman at maria.dahman@gmail.com to make alternate arrangements.
