Auburn ACT Announces open Auditions for Summer Shorts!

Back by popular demand! Summer Shorts is a collection of short scenes and one-act plays selected to showcase local actors in a variety of genres from comedic, to dramatic, to the absurdist. Selections will include classics, as well as thought-provoking contemporary works you may not be familiar with. They will be performed together over one weekend in August, the 15th-18th. Scenes are hand-picked by our directors, and provide a great opportunity for character study and script analysis for adults interested in acting in a workshop environment. No previous experience is necessary! The short scenes allow for flexible rehearsal schedules. Actors may come either or both audition days, and will read from the scripts provided.  Call-back auditions will be June 6th.  Anyone interested in directing a scene is encouraged to contact Andrea Holliday at before May 24 to be part of the script selection process. Anyone interested in stage management, directing, event planning, production management, sets, costumes, or props are also welcome to come to auditions.  


  • Starting Monday, June 3rd, 2019, repeated every day until Tuesday, June 04, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
