Tacoma Little Theatre is bringing the poignant and beautiful story, The Veterans Day Project, directed and compiled by Beau Pritchard.
Auditions will be held Sunday, August 19th and Monday, August 20th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be set between the times of 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm-10:00pm on Monday. Callbacks if needed will be held on Wednesday, August 22nd.
The Veterans Day Project is an epistolary play exploring 100 years of Americans at war, told through the letters they have written home. These letters are based on true events and people, but they are fictionalized. The show consists of approximately 25 letters, most solo, but a few are group efforts.
We are looking for members to expand our ensemble. There are no "named" roles in this play, per se, and there are no leads, cast members will generally read two letters as part of the production. Each letter represents a different individual’s experience at a moment in time. This show will be commemorating and observing Veterans Day 2018, which also represents the 100-year anniversary of Armistice, the end of the first World War.
Please prepare a selected letter available from the TLT website to use as your audition piece. The letters do not have to be memorized. TLT auditions are inclusive and are open to everyone of all backgrounds, genders, and ethnicities. We are looking for six actors to play five young military men (younger than 30), one middle-aged military woman, and one 30-year-old woman.
To reserve an audition time, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our Box Office at (253) 272-2281. Please provide: your name, phone number, email address, preferred audition time, and playable age. Bring a headshot and resume to your audition.
Once cast, The Veterans Day Project will run from Friday, November 16, 2018 to Sunday, November 18, 2018.
We need four or five actors to portray young military men. Your personal gender identification does not matter as long as you are able to credibly portray a male soldier. Due to the diversity of those who serve in the military, we are hoping for individuals from as wide array of backgrounds as possible. We are also looking for performers who can credibly portray younger than 30, as the vast majority of those who serve tend to be.
We need two actors to portray a roughly middle-aged military woman, and one 30-year-old woman. Your personal gender identification does not matter as long as you can convincingly portray a female soldier. Diverse casting is encouraged, but unlike the men, this role must be convincingly portrayed as OVER 30, probably closer to 40.
Please prepare the letter of your choice from the samples provided (they do not have to be memorized, but you should get familiar with it). Expect that you may be asked to do it again during your audition. Some of these letters contain content that would be considered R rated due to language, frank discussion of race, sex, etc, and some "locker room" talk as befits the characters and cultures of the time
