Each of the five short plays that make up FREE PLAY requires a specific cast of characters to tell the story. These characters are listed below.

If you feel like you might be able to play a role that's listed here, read the script (linked in the play title) and consider submitting a video! It's okay if you're not exactly what the role calls for, if you feel like you can act LIKE that character (for example, Sam in Water Gun Song is "around 7", but if you're 10 and feel like you could tell Sam's story--submit! If you're 17, though, you're probably not the *best* choice to tell Sam's story.)

 

Since this is a digital production, we will also need actors to read the stage directions aloud during the performance.

Please consider submitting an audition video! We need parents, elementary school-aged children, and teenagers. 

More questions about auditions, rehearsals, and performances are listed on our FAQ page.
