I hope all you actors out there are effectively breaking legs as opportunities in the DMV area are really heating up!
To stay abreast of all the opportunities coming your way, you’re going to need a plan. A good place to start is to know what auditions are going to happen and when. To know this, you’re going to need a calendar.
Here’s a calendar of some of the more prominent, yearly opportunities and events actors in the DMV area should be aware of:
The 48-Hour-Film Project – Auditions typically in May
The DC Source Festival – Auditions typically in April or May
The Capitol Fringe Festival – Auditions typically in June
Silver Spring Stage One Act Festival – Auditions typically in July
The Actors Center Lottery Auditions – Typically mid-fall and mid-spring
The League of Washington Theatres audition – Typically mid-fall and mid-spring
The eight-week Wednesday night series of classes in Scene Study will start on Sept. 5th and the Saturday series during the day will start on Sept. 8th. Classes are held weekly on Wednesday or Saturday culminating in a show where students will perform scenes from dramatic or comedic plays or films and work with a scene partner. Students may sign up for WED classes or SAT classes (there will be no make ups as students will be working with scene partners and MUST be able to count on one another.)
We will produce a PROFESSIONAL SHOW so all students must commit to preparation with others. The final show for ALL classes will be held on Wed. night, Oct. 24th at the James Lee Community Theater at 2855 Annandale Road in Falls Church where tickets will be sold at the door. There will be a mandatory dress rehearsal on the evening of Monday, October 22nd, two days before the Final Show. All students must agree to attend the dress rehearsal and the show before registering. There will be no exceptions because as we must be able to count on all students to participate.
