When: November 20, from 14:00
Where: Petterweilstr 66, Bornheim Mitte
This year TLS will be holding auditions primarily for our Staged Reading Series, which will take place once a month in February, March and April 2017. As this year’s theme has not yet been established, we will be holding auditions later in the year, on November 20th. Next season will not include a large mainstage production, such as the The Underpants, A Grimm Tale, or the Foreigner, but will rather focus on smaller projects that help us to fulfill our mission of combining art and learning to build a strong community.
For those interested in working with us, we have a resident ensemble of improvisers, the cast of FITS, for which we will always consider new talent, our staged reading series for actors, and we are working to create new and original theatre projects, which are currently only in their inception stages, and thus do not yet require casting. Please sign up on our mailing list, join us for a Saturday Dropin, or jump into an improv jam, for an opportunity to get to know us better.

More info about the Spring Reading Series
A play is a literary text that is meant to be performed, rather than read silently. A staged reading is a simplified form of theatre that is read by actors with scripts in hand in front of an audience. It is a means of exploring a piece of theatre without being a fully-realized production, where the emphasis is on hearing the text performed instead of seeing it.
There are so many exciting plays in the world, and like most theater companies Theatre Language Studio doesn’t have time to produce them all, so with our staged reading series, we offer audiences and actors a glimpse into the world of many new plays, without losing any of the pleasure of a fully realized production.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
For this series, the emphasis is not only on the acting, but also on reading. Performers that participate must be excellent at reading cold. Roles will be available for actors of all ages and types. Actors should be available for the two weeks prior to the reading to participate.
