Actors Needed for The Make Ready: A Reading Series | Dandelion Theatre

Actors!! Get cast on the spot!

The Make Ready is a reading series that gives playwrights a chance to hear their work read out loud in front of an audience. That's where you come in! Every piece is cast on the evening and given a cold read.

No audition necessary. Just arrive at *6:30pm* and let us know you'd like to be a reader.

Actors of all ages, genders, and ethnicities needed! 

There's a wide variety of pieces featuring everything from a grandmother telling her family a ghost story to a Midwesterner renting her first apartment in Brooklyn to a psychologist hunting a monster in an amusement park. Each piece has 2 to 4 characters so lots of opportunities for actors.

We are particularly seeking actors to read for the below roles:

Jade Jackson – African American, 20-30s
She's a Midwesterner and an army veteran who's just moved to Brooklyn

Otis Davis – African American, 20-40s
Jade's new neighbor

Yvelise Martinez – Latina, 40-60s
The building's female super

Raffi Aziz – Middle Eastern-American, 20-30s
A fast talking, assertive broker in charge of getting tenants into the building's units

Kit – 50-70s
The matriarch of her family

Enza – 40s
Kit's oldest daughter

Lis – 40s
Kit's youngest daughter

Each piece is about 10 pages long and either a complete play or an excerpt from a play. There’ll be 7 or 8 pieces in total. And it's totally free!

When: Tuesday, December 11

             Doors at 6:30pm

             Make Ready at 7pm

Where: The Galway Arms, 2442 N Clark St., 2nd floor, Chicago, IL 60614
