Once selected, we will rehearse both in-person and via Zoom this summer/ fall. After our reading on Friday, September 9, 2022 at the Wayward Artist in Santa Ana, additional performance opportunities may arise. This is why we are casting swings— so we can have a little SoCal troupe!

 

Compensation will be provided per reading.
