Audition Information

Festival@First 12: Love is Love

production directed by Stephanie Haddad

Continuing in the long tradition of Theatre@First’s summer short play festival, Festival@First 12 includes ten original short plays by local playwrights. Each piece takes a different look at what love means, where it starts, how it develops, and what it looks like. This Festival celebrates not just romantic love, but also love within families, among friends, for oneself, and more. Whether our shows make you laugh or cry, you're sure to love them all!

Audition Dates

General Audition Info

Auditions will consist of cold scene readings. You should  review all the audition sides, as you may be asked to read any of them during your audition and you may not have time for further review at that point. Copies will be provided. If there is a side you would especially like to read, please note that on your audition form and we will try to accommodate your request.

Audition Materials: Character descriptions and audition information (including sides) are provided in advance. If you have trouble accessing these files, please email auditions@theatreatfirst.org and we will send them to you.

Casting: All roles are open and available to actors of every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and people with disabilities. We are committed to creating a diverse cast for this show including members from the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities. Though characters have a listed gender, actors of all genders will be considered.
