Casting Call for 3rd Annual Cincinnati One-Minute Play Festival

KTC_One Minute Play Festival logoKaren O’Brien, a professional director, is looking for talent to perform in the Festival at the Know Theatre.  The One-­Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is a grassroots community-engaged theatre festival. #1MPF is social barometer practice, which investigates local zeitgeist and narratives through dialogue, consensus building, and a performance of minute-long moments generated by each community. For more information visit:

There are 6 – 10 new one-minute plays with flexible casting requirements that are diverse in race, age, gender and all frames of representation. There will be about 10-20 hours of rehearsal time in June and early July (times and dates TBD). Rehearsal time depends how many characters you are cast to portray. Alas, there is no pay for these performances.

Given that a roster of actors are needed by June 3rd, the director may make casting decisions based upon actors’ resume, headshot and list of conflicts for evening and weekend rehearsals between June 5th and July 9th rather than have actors audition.


  • Saturday July 8th at 9a-8pm for Tech and Performance at 8P (7pm call)
  • Sunday, July 9th at 3pm (2pm call)
  • Sunday, July 9th at 8pm (7pm call)

If interested, email your resume, headshot and a file with a list of conflicts to Richard Zenk, Stage Manager at by June 3rd.
