Auditions Announced for HOME THEATRE at American Legacy Theatre

ALT_logoHOME THEATRE is a totally new approach to theatre never before seen in America and was launched virtually in the beginning of 2021. This approach will create 30 world premieres in 6 months.

Acting artists will meet 1:1 with community individuals and perform a 45-60 minute one-person show inspired by and cultivated from the 1:1 session. Acting artists will leverage the acquired techniques and process taught to them by American Legacy Theatre, and create alongside a director and up to five other artists working on their own production.

Need: American Legacy Theatre is seeking to hire a diverse unit of at least six (6) acting artists 3m, 3f of all ethnicities, races, and ages. The goal is that at least half of the 30 world premieres are based upon a person of color.

AUDITION FORMAT

  • Watch the video interview provided below by A.L.T. (Available on their website here.)

  • Create a 90-120 second piece inspired by the interview

  • Follow provided guidelines

Pay: $250/one-week production

Submissions Due:  July 24, 2021 at 11:59pm for first consideration

Learning Technical Process: August 9, 2021 – September 4, 2021. This will likely be done over four weeks. There is a fifth week producer option for those artists needing additional training through September 11. Presently this learning process is unpaid, but all acting artists successfully completing the training will be guaranteed at least one one-week production.

Rehearsal Weeks & Performances: Acting artists will be assigned to community members based upon request and need late September – December 2021.

NOTE: Acting artists will not work every week, so availability and flexibility are important on both A.L.T.’s end and the acting artist. Some acting artists may do seven productions while others may only do three. At this time we are looking for local artists in the Greater Cincinnati area and training will take place in person.  

GUIDELINES
  1. Your piece must contain a verbatim moment from the interview.

  2. Your piece must have a beginning, middle, and end.

  3. Your piece must include one external production element: prop, lighting, etc.

  4. Your piece must include a minimum of two characters with clear definitive character choices.

  5. Your piece must be a minimum of 90 seconds and not exceed 120 seconds (2 minutes).

With the video, submit your headshot and resume in a single pdf, along with your conflicts August 2021- December 2021.

Break a Leg!

It’s Back! TO BE BLACK is Available to Stream through June 27

CBTAC_To Be Black logo2Cincinnati Black Theatre Artist Collective (Cincy BlackTAC) with Falcon Theatre is excited to announce that back by popular demand, TO BE BLACK is available for streaming through June 27, 2021.

Whether you’re seeing these special performances for the first time or re-visiting these dynamic and nuanced works, we can’t wait to bring these stories back into your homes.

Cincy BlackTAC is excited to expand their work to focus on new voices. In their successful 2020 summer weekly series, Monologues For Us By Us, they featured the work of August Wilson and his contemporaries. In this new collaboration, they will continue to showcase the stories of Black life in the most varied and multi-faceted way; promoting the awareness that the Black experience is not monolithic. Under the direction of Piper N. Davis and Candice Handy, local playwrights will have the opportunity to have their work brought to life by some of Cincinnati’s favorite faces, including Geoffrey Barnes, Burgess Byrd and Ernaisja Curry. Featured playwrights include Derek J. Snow, Cris Eli Blak, A.J. Baldwin Arethia Hornsby Rinfrow, and Curtis Shepard.

“The audience will get to hear from a variety of Black voices with TO BE BLACK. I hope that viewers will gain some perspective in subject matters like identity, gentrification and trauma that affect Black people every day in a different way than our white peers. I also hope that the audience will have a good time! There are some new, fresh and comedic voices in TO BE BLACK that truly showcase the vibrancy of Black culture and quick-wittedness of Black folks!” says Cincy BlackTAC Artistic Director, Candice Handy.

Falcon Theatre is proud to bring Cincinnati Black Theatre Artist Collective to their space to produce this virtual theatrical event. “Theatre, at its core, is a collaborative process. Part of Falcon Theatre’s mission is to advocate new voices, foster talent and vision and provide a safe, inviting environment for all artists to grow and share their work. Collaborating with Cincy BlackTAC is a fundamental way Falcon can help support the efforts of BIPOC artists so the momentum gained through tragedy is not lost to complacency,” says Artistic Director and Founder of Falcon Theatre, Ted Weil.

TO BE BLACK will be available for streaming through June 27, 2021, for $15. Tickets will be available for purchase on both the Falcon and Cincinnati Black Theatre Artist Collective’s websites. Ticketholders will be able to view the show for 48 hours after their purchase.
