Auditions, Upcoming Performance

Audition For Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner

We are looking to fill two roles in our upcoming production of Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner by Darcy Parker Bruce!

Auditions will be Sunday, September 22 at the Mesa Arts Center Drama Studio from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Be prepared for cold reads with other performers.

NOTE: Both of these roles should be played by female-identifying and/or non-binary performers of color. Special consideration will be given to queer-identifying performers.

SAM– (Late 30s, F) Overnight janitor at the Starlight. Very observant, a hard Masculine-of-Center  presenting queer on the outside but a real softie on the inside. Totally and hopelessly in love with Jessa. Lives in her truck. Sometimes couch- surfs or catches a break with a generous lady. Loves the Starlight second only to Jessa, but that’s debatable. Prone to motion sickness induced by sudden Time Travel.

DANNI– (Early 20s, F) Dr. Moxie’s graduate assistant (read: slave) baseball fan and TOTAL dino buff, Danni knows more about the Cretaceous and the Diamondbacks than most folks in Arizona. Loves to read. Collects baseball cards and is also just the right amount of concerned about that comet- you know the one- that’s supposed to pass by Earth tonight? That, big streak of white light in the night sky?

Rehearsals are Mon-Wed 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM, beginning October 21.

Performances are January 10-11 and 17-18 at 7:30 PM. Pay is a $75 stipend.
