Auditions at TWTDear actors and friends of actors,

The Weekend Theater, 7th & Chester in downtown Little Rock, has set auditions for our two winter shows. The auditions will be at 10 A.M. on Saturday, September 27th and 6 P.M. Sunday, September 28th at The Weekend Theater for the following shows:

Other Desert Cities, directed by Ralph Hyman and No Exit, directed by Tom Tinker.   Auditions will consist of reading from the script; you do not have to prepare anything prior to the audition.  Scripts will not be available prior to auditions.


Other Desert Cities at TWTOther Desert Cities, written by Jon Robin Baitz, will rehearse November 1st through December 4th with performances December 5-20.  There will be time off for Thanksgiving break.

One role, the mother Polly Wyeth, will not be auditioned, as it is precast with Judy Trice playing the part.  The other four roles are not precast; we will need a male playing in his 60’s-70’s, a female playing in her 50’s-70’s, a female playing in her 40’s and a male playing in his 30’s.

No roles are precast.  Four roles needed: 1 male (late 20’s to 40’s), 2 females (late 20’s to 40’s), and one character that can be either male or female (no definitive age required).

Ralph Hyman, Artistic Director at TWTWe look forward to having you come and read with us.  We are a theater in which we choose plays of social significance and we learn to treat each other and ourselves with kindness, empathy and respect.  Auditioning with us is designed to be a sharing and learning experience, not a competitively brutal trauma!  Come join our Weekend Theater family!
