Note for TEMPEST: We are looking to cast in VERY non-traditional ways on this project and are open to all ages, races, body types, and gender identifications for this general call.  We’re looking for the soul of each of these characters rather than to fulfill a traditional casting model. If you’d like to be seen for a specific role in this story, we’d suggest preparing that character’s monologue or soliloquy from the play as part of your audition.

Submit: If interested, Actors Equity members please sign up through the Actors Equity Member Portal at https://members.actorsequity.org/ beginning on September 18th at noon. EPA rules are in effect. EMC and non-equity actors are encouraged to come as walk ins.
