In the Family is a drag theater production written by Tirrany Reigns and directed by Ramona Mirage, produced in tandem with PrideArts. It follows a drag family facing the trials, tribulations, and hangovers that come from a major loss in the family and a raucous New Year’s Eve. Previous acting experience and/or drag experience is not required but is a plus!

All actors will receive a stipend, to be paid upon show’s run completion. All actors MUST be 18+ (ID will be required upon contract signing), as themes are adult in nature at times. All actors MUST be able to attend all necessary rehearsals (everyone will NOT be required at all rehearsals, those more specific schedules will be administered at cast read-through/first rehearsal), unless otherwise excused in advance by production team (Ramona or Tirrany). Be sure to list ANY conflicts you may have with the scheduled rehearsal dates!!!

The deadline for submissions is Friday November 11 at 5p.
