Coming in fresh off of a great There Will Be Words reading of John Minigan’s Concordance, we here at VTG are very excited to announce that we have added a day of open auditions for our next production–August and Autumn, by Brian Tuttle!
Mark your calendars, because this day of open auditions will be held this coming Tuesday, October 8th! If you want to audition but are not available on October 8, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possible alternatives.
Auditions are by appointment, so please claim your slot here on our Sign Up Genius page!
Here’s a short blurb about this show:
August, a prickly and sarcastic know-it-all, is plagued with having the second best memory in the world. Autumn is a fun and beautiful kleptomaniac, who cannot form short term memories. When the two cross paths in a hotel lobby, the troubled and cynical August is beyond smitten. From that point on, he is tasked with making an impression so big that even the Girl Without A Memory will remember him, no matter who — an overwhelmed sister, a frustrated ex-wife, or figments of his own imagination– stands in his way.
This show is cool, folks. And we want you to be a part of it! We’re looking for six actors (three male, three female) who are available October-November for evening and weekend rehearsals and performances from November 30th – December 7th. All characters are in their 20’s/30’s. Here’s a breakdown!
- August: male, synesthete, sarcastic know-it-all
- Autumn: female, cannot form short-term memories, fun and whimsical
- Fig: Male, rowdy figment of August’s imagination
- Elizabeth: female, former psychologist, August’s ex-wife
- Marissa: female, Autumn’s sister, protective, uptight
- Thomas: male, graduate education student,

Sides will be provided at the auditions. Short monologues of about 1-2 minutes are optional (encouraged, but by no means required). Please bring a resume and headshot with you.
