In The Wings Promotions is accepting submissions from actors for various roles in an online reading of the The Head that Wears the Crown written by Hope Villanueva and directed/produced by Noelle Hannibal.
For consideration, email picture and resume, along with a short monologue to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please use “The Head that Wears the Crown – AUDITION” in subject line) The video does NOT need to be high quality.
Submission Deadline: Friday, April 3, 2020 at 5PM EDT
This will be an online reading. There will be no rehearsals, however the director and playwright will be available for one on one discussion. The reading will be scheduled around the actor’s schedules. Please note that this is unpaid. It is a way for us to give ourselves a “workout” and keep us flexible during this time of isolation and quarantine.
Performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and ages, as well as performers with disabilities, are encouraged to submit. Worldwide submissions welcome!
